48 percent of voters say Trump is 'mentally stable'

48 percent of voters say Trump is 'mentally stable'

Independent voters surveyed in the poll broke for Republicans, giving the party a 5-point lead over Democrats among unaffiliated voters. While 78% of Republicans approve of his performance, 93% of Democrats and 59% of independents disapprove.

But the good news for him is a plurality - 48 percent say he's mentally stable, compared to 42 percent who say he's not.

Washington, Sep 13 (IANS) The majority of US voters said they would not like to see Congress begin impeachment proceedings against US President Donald Trump, according to a poll released on Wednesday.

Trump's overall approval rating was the lowest in the polls by CNN, ABC News/Washington Post, and IBD/TIPP at 36 percent. The poll from almost two years ago was taken less than two weeks after Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.

In the poll of 949 adults, half of voters (50 percent) said they were more likely to vote for the Democrat in their district over the Republican (38 percent) - an increase from July, when the Democratic edge was 47 to 40 percent.

Each book describes a White House in chaos and Trump aides shielding the president from information in efforts to curb potentially risky policies or actions.

In races for the US House of Representatives nationwide, American voters back Democratic candidates over Republicans by 52 to 38 per cent, the poll showed.

The president's party often gets clobbered in midterm election years.

Similar claims of an in-house "resistance" aimed at thwarting an unrestrained and ill-informed POTUS were made by an anonymous "senior White House official" in an anonymous op-ed published last week in The New York Times.

Also coming in the weeks ahead is what is known as the generic ballot poll, which simply asks voters about their party preference for November.

Women favor Democrats by 55 - 35 percent.
