Holding off electoral disaster becomes even more hard when that president has a low approval rating.
Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,038 voters nationwide from September 6 to 9, with a margin of error of 3.7 percentage points.
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.
Almost half of all registered American voters - 47 percent - say Congress should begin impeachment proceedings that could lead to President Donald Trump being removed from office, according to a new poll from CNN.
Trump's overall approval rating was the lowest in the polls by CNN, ABC News/Washington Post, and IBD/TIPP at 36 percent.
Heaping further pressure on poor Republican numbers is Trump's unpopularity.
And the Quinnipiac poll showed Republicans still approving of Trump by a margin of 84 to 7 percent.
Americans are happy with the economy, according to two polls released Monday. In CNN's poll, only 32 percent of adults said Trump is honest and trustworthy, a new low in CNN's polling. The poll finds that 50 percent of voters would cast their ballot for a Democrat, while only 38 percent would vote for a GOP candidate in their district.
Trump's decreasing popularity with voters outside of the Republican Party can have a major effect in the results of the upcoming midterm elections.
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.
But according to Quinnipiac's most recent poll, 70 percent of respondents labeled the economy as "excellent" or "good", which has allowed Trump to hold on to his base of Republicans.
This year, though, the "negative toward both parties" group favors Democrats.
