American voters of different partisan stripes don’t agree on much nowadays, but they can agree on this: most of them approve of US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, CNN reported last week.
President Donald Trump’s choice of an Indian-American as ambassador to the United Nations may have been his best decision yet as it relates to his national security team. According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, results of which were announced April 25, Haley scores way above the other members of Trump’s cabinet, for her work as the international envoy at the world body.
A broad 63% of American voters approve of her job performance vs. only 17% who say they disapprove in a new Quinnipiac University poll. Twenty percent had no opinion. Her approval spans party lines: 75% of Republicans, 63% of independents and even 55% of Democrats say they approve of how she’s handling her job.
Her support among Democrats is virtually identical to the share of Democrats who approve of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (56%) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (55%) in the same poll.
From April 20 – 24, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,193 voters nationwide, with a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percentage points, including the design effect. Live interviewers called landlines and cell phones to determine opinions, the press release said.
In other results of the poll, American voters approve 52 – 42 percent of the way President Donald Trump is handling the nation’s policy toward North Korea, and support 61 – 30 percent the military action against Syria after the alleged use of chemical weapons.
As for the work of Congress, American voters disapproved of both parties’ accomplishments — 69 disapproval to 22 percent of the job Republicans in Congress are doing and 66 – 26 percent of the job Democrats in were doing.
