  • Protesters hold a placard reading 'Pro America- Anti-Trump'

President Donald Trump on Thursday morning tweeted about a recent Quinnipiac poll that found 66% of USA voters thought the economy was in good or excellent shape, but the same poll also gave him low marks for mental fitness.

Almost 4 in 10 US voters gave President Donald Trump a failing grade for his first year in office, with "disaster" and "chaotic" the words most used to describe his first 12 months in the White House. "Something noble about the presidency", former CBS news anchor Dan Rather told Salon in November.

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,106 voters from January 5-9 with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.

Even when Trump has something going for him in terms of his poll numbers, it is often tainted. About 85 percent of Georgia voters who voted for Trump in 2016 approve of his work in his first year in office, the report said.

Sixty-nine percent of respondents said Trump is not levelheaded, while 28 percent disagreed.

At the same time, 59 percent of respondents said that Trump doesn't care about average Americans.

The university did note that it was the highest positive rating for the economy since Quinnipiac first began to poll Americans about the topic in 2001.
