Most Americans disagree with Trump on trans troops

Most Americans disagree with Trump on trans troops

39 percent in military households, believe transgender people should be allowed to serve in the military. That's including 55% of voters in military households who support transgender service, according to the poll. Almost three out of five voters said they think Trump is abusing the powers of his office; asked if they believe the president thinks his authority supersedes USA law, they agreed, 60 to 36 percent. Those who know someone who is transgender are much more likely to favor allowing them to serve openly.

"They put on uniforms and face the same risks as their brothers and sisters in arms for little reward other than protecting their country", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll.

The majority of voters said Trump was not honest, did not have good leadership skills, was not intelligent and did not care about them.

89 - 8 percent of American voters said it should be illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee based on sexual orientation.

The June 7 national poll found Trump ties to Russian Federation are illegal or unethical, US voters say; voters disapprove 2-1 of pulling out of Paris accord.

A new poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports/Pulse Opinion Research indicates that more than six in ten Americans disapprove of Trump's presidency.




President Donald Trump makes an announcement on the introduction of the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act in the Roosevelt Room at the White House on August 2. Only 22 percent said the ACA should be repealed in full, while 40 percent said parts of it should be repealed and 33 percent said none of it should be.

81 - 14 percent of voters, including 76 - 17 percent among Republicans, said there should be bipartisan hearings on any new healthcare law to replace Obamacare.

Republican voters remained the only demographic group opposed to allowing transgender people in the military. "The message: Start over and do it right".

The Rasmussen poll was conducted between the 30 July and 1 August, and is a fresh blow to the embattled president.

Frequently cited by journalists, public officials and researchers, the independent Quinnipiac University Poll regularly surveys residents in Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Iowa, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and nationwide about political races, state and national elections, and issues of public concern, such as schools, taxes, transportation, municipal services and the environment.
