President Donald Trump is unfit for office, isn't level-headed, and should stop tweeting, a majority of voters said in a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday.

Overall, 56% of voters say Trump is not fit to serve as president. Trump's disapproval rating is 57%, with only 36% of voters approving of the job he's doing amid his administration's response to the devastation in Puerto Rico and his party's failure to pass legislation repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.

Trump's support among Republicans remains still high, however: 84% of Republicans say he is fit to serve in the Oval Office, compared to just 5% of Democrats and 40% of independents.

Here are some of the poll's highlights:

"There is no upside. With an approval rating frozen in the mid-thirties, his character and judgment questioned, President Donald Trump must confront the harsh fact that the majority of American voters feel he is simply unfit to serve in the highest office in the land," said Tim Malloy, the assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

The bad news filters down to Trump's party as well. Overall, 78% of voters disapprove of the job Congressional Republicans are doing, up from 70% when the question was last polled in June. And just 32% of Republican voters approve of the job their elected representatives in Congress are doing.

However, only 47% of voters say they want Democrats to win control of the House in the 2018 midterms.

    President Trump has done a very good job and considering having to fight a bunch of Democrats and Republicans since entering the race . People have forgotten all the many stupid events that took place during our recent history. The lack of working together may result in a Independent party in the future. Both Democrats and Republicans need to Work together or events may get really bad for our country. Fight for our great country and work together.
