HAMDEN, CT (WFSB) -

The majority of American voters continue to disapprove of what the president is doing, at least according to a Quinnipiac University poll.

The poll results were released on Tuesday and revealed that voters disapprove of President Donald Trump's performance 58 to 35 percent.

"Must feel like Groundhog Day in Trumpland," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.  "President Donald Trump returns from his big Asia trip to find numbers frozen in the negative. Ominously, there is creeping slippage in the base."

The numbers are near his lowest score, which was 61 to 33 percent back in August, according to Quinnipiac.

His disapproval rating just last month was 56 to 38 percent. 

Among independent voters, the rating was 63 percent disapprove compared to 31 percent who approve.

For Democrats, 91 percent disapprove. Only 5 percent approve.

However for Republicans, 80 percent approve with 11 percent disapproving.

Quinnipiac said in a new low for the ratings, only 40 percent of American voters said Trump is fit to serve as president. That's compared to 57 percent who believe he is unfit.
