The new Quinnipiac University opinion poll was carried out from June 15 to 19 with a total of 1,776 respondents and has a margin of error of 2.3 percentage points.
Conservative political commentator and podcast host Tim Pool noted that the survey was conducted by a university and not by a member of Trump's campaign or a political action committee that supports him, thus proving the poll's authenticity.
"The people can see that there is a different standard for those in power who are favored and those who are in power who are disfavored," Pool said. He added that this type of situation could lead to more political instability and people "checking out" of the system because they no longer believe in it.
