"It's hard to pick what is the most alarming number in the troubling trail of new lows for President Donald Trump", Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a statement announcing the poll results.
Republican respondents on the other hand, see the Trump White House operating in a more positive light with 63% saying it is running well, while 34%, say it is running chaotically.
White men were the most split on their opinions about the President, with 47 percent approving of Trump and 48 percent disapproving.
A vast majority of American voters, 69 percent, want Mr Trump to stop tweeting from his personal Twitter account. More than 7 in 10 voters (72 percent) said the Justice Department should investigate those who leak such information, including 84 percent of Republicans and 63 percent of Democrats. Sixty-two percent of voters, a record high, said they disapproved of Trump, according to Rasmussen Wednesday. Likewise, the percentage of Americans who say they are "very concerned" has decreased by ten points since March 2017 (from 37 percent to 26 percent), while those who say they are "not at all concerned" has increased by five points (from 28 percent to 33 percent).

Rift Valley regional coordinator Wanyama Musiambo who is at the home declined to comment on the operation. The DP's home has since been cordoned off and Recce Squad officers have been deployed.
The Morning Consult/Politico poll found that 60% of registered voters think Trump's administration is running "somewhat chaotically" or "very chaotically". "Profound embarrassment over his performance in office and deepening concern over his level-headedness have to raise the biggest red flags".
However, the poll did find that 58 percent of people found Trump to be "strong".
The poll surveyed 1,125 registered voters nationwide from July 27 to August 1 via live phone interviews. Prior to this week, the former reality TV star had never sunk lower than 41 percent approval in the Rasmussen poll.
