The new poll, conducted February 2-5, found 40 percent of American voters approve of Trump's job performance, while 55 percent disapprove.

A majority of Americans believe the Obama administration "improperly surveilled" the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, a new poll released this week found.

But voters aren't buying it: 55 percent say the bureau is not biased against Trump, while 33 percent say it is.

Jim Hoft at the Gateway Pundit pointed out that on February 7, 2010, Obama had an approval rating of 44 percent of likely voters while 56 percent of disapproved. That's his best score on the economy since taking office. Half of voters believed the Mueller probe was "legitimate" and 41% did not, however 56% told Quinnipiac that it was fair.

47 percent disapprove of the Republican tax plan; 39 percent approve.

Trump got his highest marks on his handling of the economy.

58 percent disapprove of how he handles classified information; 32 percent approve.

On immigration, 59% do not approve of Trump's calls to build a wall along the country's southern border, and 72% did not agree that undocumented citizens committed more crime than USA citizens.

Voters contend Trump is doing more to divide the country than to unite it by 60 percent to 35 percent. When asked if Trump had tried to "derail or obstruct" the Russian Federation probe, 56 percent of independents said he had, and 37 percent said he hadn't.

There are wide gender, party and racial gaps on the racism question.

In his statement, McCain also said that "special counsel Mueller's investigation must proceed unimpeded".

And ultimately, 55 percent of respondents said they didn't trust Trump to do what's right.

"Special Counsel Robert Mueller is not out to get President Donald Trump, American voters say, but they do feel the president is out to get Mueller", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. "Americans are feeling good about their personal finances, but we'll have to see whether the Wall Street plunge takes a toll on the guy in charge".

The poll, conducted from January 25 to February 2, surveyed 900 people. The margin for sampling error is ±3.3 percent points among all voters; it is larger for subgroups.
