Not only does a clear majority of Americans not approve of Trump's job performance, but even more don't like him or his personal traits: He's not levelheaded, he's not honest, he's not a good leader, and he doesn't care about average Americans.

That's a 7-point swing in Democrats' direction since last week, when voters were split at 40 percent for each party. Looking at day 195 of past presidencies (where Trump is now) just former President Gerald Ford comes close-and his approval rating was at 39.4 percent, according to FiveThirtyEight. The new figures, says Quinnipiac, are the lowest approval and highest disapproval number since Trump took office.

In a Politico/Morning Consult poll that was also released on Wednesday, Trump's approval rating dipped slightly to 42%, down one point from the 43% who said they approved last week, but within the plus or minus 2 percentage-point margin of error. No president in the history of polling has ever had worse ratings, and today, new polls find even Trump's ratings have never been worse than now. Sixty-two percent of American voters disapproved of his job performance. And with continuous tension reported in the White House, things don't seem to be slowing down. Six months in, Trump had the worst approval rating of any president since modern polling began. For his total approval to fall, then, the decline would have to come from demographic groups that have more room for his approval to fall. From the poll, it was deduced that voters have a generally low opinion of how the White House is operating.

RealClearPolitics, after aggregating the last 10 national surveys released between July 12 and August 1, found that Trump had an average approval rating of 38 percent and an average disapproval of 57 percent. It found that 68 percent believe transgenders should be able to serve in the military while 27 percent think they should be banned from doing so. What's more, 55% of voters in military households said transgender people should be able to serve.

80 - 15 percent of American voters said they disapprove of the way Republicans in Congress are handling healthcare.
