In a Quinnipiac University poll released on Wednesday, respondents were asked: “
What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Donald Trump?”
The answers people gave aren’t exactly flattering. Although the most popular answer, “strong,” reflected well on Trump, respondents also attached a host of negative words to the president.

Among the top 10 most popular responses were “idiot,” “incompetent,” “liar,” “racist,” and “unqualified.”

The most common words were:

1. “Strong,” 64 times

2. “Idiot,” 59 times

3. “Incompetent,” 58 times

4. “Liar,” 50 times

5. “President,” 49 times

6. “Racist,” 29 times

7. “Leader,” 27 times

8. “Unqualified,” 26 times

9. “A–hole,” 24 times

10. “Arrogant,” 21 times

Other popular answers included “honest,” “crazy,” “narcissist,” and “patriot.”

Here are all the responses that were given by five or more people:

In a previous instalment of the Quinnipiac poll from May, respondents gave similar answers — “idiot,” “incompetent” and “liar” were the top three words.

The negative responses on Wednesday were in line with other results from the same poll, which found that 62% of Americans think Trump is doing more to divide the country than the unite it — the worst score he’s received on that question in the poll’s history.

Trump also earned an approval rating of 35%, close to the lowest figure of his presidency.

The poll surveyed 1,514 voters between August 17 and August 22.
