Donald Trump is a president who is in the midst of the worst political scandal since Watergate, who has no political capital, and few loyalists in Congress. Trump also has no agenda and no voice or vision for the country. Almost four in 10 Republicans, 38 percent, say his conduct has been unpresidential rather than "fitting and proper" for a president. Forty-six percent of whites see them as risky, rising to 65 percent of nonwhites.

Comparatively, approval ratings remained low among non-white Protestants, college educated white women, Hispanics, and blacks.
