A large majority of American voters say they don’t believe President Trump is a good role model for children, a poll released Thursday showed.

A Quinnipiac Poll found 67 percent of voters believe Trump is not a good role model, compared to 29 percent who say he is. In total, 90 percent of voters say it’s important for the president to be a good role model. 

Republicans are the only group that believes Trump sets a good example, the poll found, with 72 percent saying he is a good role model for kids.

The poll also found most Americans find Trump is not honest, does not have good leadership skills and does not share their values. 

The poll was conducted from Jan. 19 to 23 and has a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.

Trump frequently stirred controversy and earned backlash from lawmakers from both parties for comments during his first year in office.

Earlier this month, he reportedly questioned why the United States accepted so many immigrants from “shithole countries” like Haiti, El Salvador and African nations.

In August, Trump said “both sides” were to blame for a violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., where one woman was killed.

He has also frequently mocked other lawmakers and world leaders, calling Kim Jong Un “Little Rocket Man,” Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) “liddle’ Bob Corker” and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) “Pocahontas.”
