A majority of American voters, including those in military households, say transgender people should be allowed to serve in the armed forces, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. During that time span, Trump dismissed both his chief of staff, Reince Priebus, and his communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, while the Senate rejected a Trump-supported effort to repeal the national health care act signed into law seven years ago by former President Barack Obama.
Sixty-one percent of those surveyed said they don't approve of the job Trump has been doing while just 33 percent approve.
Trump's latest Quinnipiac approval rating is worse than the 55-to-40 percent disapproval mark recorded in its last survey in late June. 60 percent of Republicans oppose trans service, but "every other party, gender, education, age or racial group" backs it by a margin of 22 percent or more, according to the poll.
