Fewer Americans Say Donald Trump is Intelligent Than Ever Before

In an Economist-YouGov poll released Wednesday, 34 percent of USA adults said they wanted to see Democrats retake control of the House, while another 32 percent said they wanted Republicans to maintain control of the chamber.

Trump's overall approval rating was the lowest in the polls by CNN, ABC News/Washington Post, and IBD/TIPP at 36 percent.

The Real Clear Politics polling average puts Trump's approval at 41 percent, with 53 percent disapproving. And the Gallup weekly poll shows Trump at 40 percent positive, 54 percent negative, marking eight straight weeks where the president's approval rating has been no higher than 42 percent.

Heaping further pressure on poor Republican numbers is Trump's unpopularity.

"American voters don't want Congress to tell President Donald Trump, 'You're fired!' by serving him with articles of impeachment", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. The poll from almost two years ago was taken less than two weeks after Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.

According to Vox, only one poll conducted by Rasmussen gave the president an approval rating above 45 percent.

Off-ramps into the towns have been closed while on-ramps remain open to allow residents to get out of the affected areas. The three communities house more than 146,000 residents and are located about 42 kilometres north of Boston .

Democrats hold a slim lead over Republicans on a poll of US adults' preferences for which party they want controlling the House after November's midterm elections.

The president's party often gets clobbered in midterm election years. Republicans were the only group that trusted Trump more than the media, by 72 to 12 percent.

There might be several reasons, including many controversies, as to why the poll percent has dropped.

Similar claims of an in-house "resistance" aimed at thwarting an unrestrained and ill-informed POTUS were made by an anonymous "senior White House official" in an anonymous op-ed published last week in The New York Times.

The poll also showed the bind Mr. Trump is in.

Women favor Democrats by 55 - 35 percent.
