President Donald Trump is viewed unfavorably by most Americans, the majority of whom have little confidence in his ability to lead the country during a global crisis.

In the latest survey from PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll, over half of Americans disapprove of Trump's performance thus far, view him unfavorably, and think he's unsuited to lead the nation during a crisis.

  • 54 percent disapprove of Trump's work
  • 37 percent approve of his work
  • 57 percent have an unfavorable impression of Trump
  • 35 percent view him favorably
  • 58 percent have little or no confidence in his leadership during a global crisis
  • 42 percent have a great deal or a good amount of confidence

Trump's response to international incidents like North Korea's missile tests, particularly his rejection of a diplomatic solution, have prompted questions about his ability to manage an international crisis.

The poll also found that the vast majority of Americans think the country is headed in the wrong direction.

  • 65 percent think things are going in the wrong direction
  • 27 percent think things are going in the right direction
  • 8 percent are unsure

The overwhelming majority of Democrats think the country is headed in the wrong direction, while most Republicans think it's going the right way.

  • 94 percent of "strong" Democrats and 88 percent of "soft" said wrong direction.
  • 74 percent of "strong" Republicans and 42 percent of "soft" said right direction.

The PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll surveyed 1,105 American adults by phone from Sept. 25-27, with a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.
