Poll: Trump hits new low at 33 percent approval

President Trump's approval rating hit a new low on Wednesday, according to a new poll.

A Quinnipiac University poll finds 61 percent of voters disapprove of the job Trump is doing in office, compared to just 33 percent who approve of Trump's performance.

This marks the president's lowest approval rating since he was inaugurated, according to the university.

It is also a sharp drop since the last such poll. In a survey taken at the end of June, 55 percent of respondents disapproved of the job the president was doing and 40 percent approved.

The recent poll also found a majority of voters, 71 percent, don't think Trump is "levelheaded" and 62 percent don't think he is "honest."

A majority of voters also think Trump does not have good leadership skills and does not care about average Americans.

Fifty-eight percent of voters think Trump "has attempted to derail or obstruct the investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 election," according to the poll.

And a majority of voters believe Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential race.

The poll was conducted from July 27 to Aug. 1 among 1,125 voters. The margin of error is 3.4 percentage points.

The poll comes as Trump is struggling to progress on some key areas of his agenda, including the repeal and replace of ObamaCare. Last week, senators failed to pass even a "skinny" bill repealing ObamaCare.

It also comes amid a White House shakeup. Trump last week announced John Kelly, the former Homeland Security secretary, would replace Reince Priebus as his new chief of staff. The White House also lost its communications director.
