Voters in the Pittsburgh area, including several who voted for President TrumpDonald John TrumpThis week: House kicks off public phase of impeachment inquiry Impeachment week: Trump probe hits crucial point Judd Gregg: The big, big and bigger problem MORE, vented frustration with his administration and ability to lead the country in a new focus group study conducted by Emory University and reported by NBC News.

The voters used words to describe Trump that included “dishonest,” “narcissistic,” “off-the-scale,” “an abject disappointment,” “contemptible” and “unbelievable.”

Out of the 12 participants, five cast a vote for Trump in last year’s presidential election. Each participant who backed Trump spoke of worries about the president’s inability to break the gridlock in Washington, D.C.


“What most disappoints me is he’s such an incredibly flawed individual who has articulated so many of the values that I hold dear,” Tony Sciullo said, according to NBC.

Sciullo voted for Trump and is the participant who described him as “an abject disappointment.”

Peter Hart, a Democratic pollster who conducted the focus group on Tuesday for Emory University, said Trump is “supposed to be the voice of hope.” 

“What everybody said, either directly or indirectly, was that his presidency is about him and it’s not about us,” Hart said.
