According to the Quinnipiac University National Poll of 1,106 voters from January 5 to January 9, the word disaster was used 69 times. Democrats turned out in force for the 2017 Virginia election, making up 41 percent of voters to the Republicans' 30 percent, according to CNN exit polls.

While more than half, 53 percent, of respondents considered Trump intelligent, 69 percent said he is not level-headed and 57 percent believe he is not fit to serve as president.

The January 10 national poll found Trump is intelligent, but not fit or level-headed, USA voters say; first year was "disaster", "chaotic", "successful". Excerpts that were released earlier had caused a public rift between the president and his former chief strategist and top campaign aide, Steve Bannon, over Bannon's comments in the book about Trump and his family.

Despite this, Trump tweeted out portions of the poll on Thursday.

As for the Quinnipiac poll, 59 per cent of those surveyed disapprove of Trump's handling of the Oval Office, while 36 per cent approve.
