President Donald Trump's approval rating has dropped to a new low of 34 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.

More specifically, 25 percent of people "approve strongly" of the president, compared with 9 percent who "approve somewhat," 6 percent who "disapprove somewhat" and 51 percent who "disapprove strongly." Nine percent had no opinion.

Late last month, Quinnipiac said, Trump's approval percentage was 37 percent and disapproval rating was 55 percent.

According to the FiveThirtyEight polls average, Trump has a job approval rating of 38.3 percent, and a 55.9 percent job disapproval rating.

The Quinnipiac Poll found Trump has 81 percent support from Republicans, but 4 percent of Democrats and 35 percent of independents support the president. Among Republicans, 63 percent strongly approve of him.

Among men, the approval rating is 41 percent - compared with 28 percent of women backing Trump. Thirty-seven percent of college graduates approve of the president and 46 percent without a degree feel that way.

A majority of respondents told Quinnipiac they don't think Trump has a slew of qualities, including honesty, leadership skills and intelligence.
