Sixty percent of American voters say President Donald Trump did something illegal or unethical in his relationship with Russia, a new Quinnipiac University poll reveals.

And 32 percent say he did nothing wrong, according to the survey.

Here are the poll highlights:

  • Thirty-four percent approve of the job Trump is doing as president, compared to 57 percent who disapprove.
  • Seventy-three percent approve of the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russia's involvement in the election, while 15 percent disapprove.
  • Fifty-four percent say Trump is too friendly to Russia, compared to 3 percent who say he is too unfriendly and 38 percent say he has the right attitude.
  • Fifty-nine percent say he is not honest, while 36 percent say he is.
  • Sixty-two percent say Trump is a strong person, compared 35 percent who disagree.
  • Sixty-four percent say he does not share their values, while 33 percent say he does.
  • Fifty-four percent say Trump will be president for his entire four-year term, compared to 40 percent who disagree.

"There is zero good news for President Donald Trump in this survey, just a continual slide into a chasm of doubt about his policies and his very fitness to serve," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Here is how the rest of the poll breaks down:

  • Thirty percent say they have a favorable opinion of fired FBI Director James Comey, compared to 34 percent who do not. Thirty-one percent say they have no opinion.
  • Thirty-two percent approve of Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, while 62 percent disagree.
  • Eight percent say Russia is a U.S. ally, while 45 percent say it is an adversary. Forty-three percent say it is neither.

The poll surveyed 1,361 voters from May 31-June 6. The margin if error is plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
