Poll takers called people at both landline and mobile phone numbers.

Americans by an nearly 8 to 1 margin - 79 percent - think Dreamers should be allowed to remain in the country and apply for citizenship - putting most voters at odds with GOP immigration hardliners in Congress and the Trump administration, a new Quinnipiac poll said Thursday.

A new poll gave President Trump several pieces of bad news on Wednesday night: After the Trump first year, 39 percent of Americans would give his presidency a failing grade, while a large majority think he is dishonest, lacks leadership skills and is unfit to serve as president.

The Quinnipiac University Poll conducts nationwide public opinion surveys, and statewide polls in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa and Colorado as a public service and for research.

That same poll shows that only 37 percent of voters believe Trump's policies are helping the economy, and 49 percent say that former President Barack Obama is more responsible for the current state of the economy.

According to the results, released Wednesday, 66 per cent of the respondents feel the USA economy is "excellent" or "good", while another 33 per cent said the economy was "not so good" or "poor".

Approximately 37 percent of voters said they believed Trump's economic policies are "helping" the US economy, while 29 percent believed Trump's policies were "hurting" it.

The poll, taken January 5-9, from Quinnipiac included 1,106 voter opinions and has a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points.

Quinnipiac also quizzed voters on whether they feel Trump was intelligent and fit for the Oval Office.

The poll went on to ask voters to grade Trump's first year in office. The book also questioned Trump's fitness as president. His job approval rating is 36 percent.
