"A" and "B" received 16 percent each with 11 percent giving Trump a "C". Poll takers called people at both landline and mobile phone numbers.

The January 10 Quinnipiac poll does show that 66 percent of voters feel the economy is "excellent or good" - but that's where the good news ends for Trump.

More than half of the 43 words uttered about Trump's freshman year at least five times, 25, were negative, while just 10 were positive and eight were considered neutral, including "interesting" and "different".

A combined total of 66 percent of American voters described "the state of the nation's economy these days" as "excellent" or "good", up from the previous high of 63 percent of voters who said the economy was "excellent" or "good" on December 19.

A majority of Americans, 52 percent, said they do not approve of the tax plan, compared to 32 percent who support the Republican legislation.

President Donald Trump on Thursday touted the results of a Quinnipiac University poll released a day earlier, which show that 66% of voters think the USA economy is "excellent" or "good".

Even worse, an fantastic 57 percent of respondents said Trump is "not fit for office" and 69 percent said he isn't "level-headed".

Words most used to describe him are not "stable genius".

The poll released found that 40 percent of voters said Trump was "more responsible for the current state of the economy", while 49 percent believed that former President Barack Obama shared more responsibility.

Quinnipiac said the poll surveyed 1,106 voters nationwide and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
