More than two out of three American voters say President Donald Trump is not a good role model for children, a Quinnipiac Poll showed Thursday.

Some 67 percent of voters said Trump is not a good role model for kids, compared to 29 percent who think he is. The pollster said all political, gender and age groups agreed he's not a good role model — except for Republicans, who said he is, by a 72 percent to 22 percent margin.

Here are some key highlights of the poll:

  • 63 percent of all respondents say Trump does not provide good moral leadership, compared to 33 percent who say he does
  • 80 percent of Republicans say Trump does provide good moral leadership, compared to 16 percent who disagree

White voters with no college degree — much of the president's base — are evenly split on his moral leadership, 47 percent to 47 percent.

  • 58 percent of voters disapprove of the job Trump is doing
  • 36 percent approve of Trump's job performance

Among Republicans, 86 percent say he is doing a good job, while 9 percent disagree.

  • 53 percent of Americans say they are embarrassed to have Trump as president; 27 percent say they are proud he's in the White House
  • 60 percent say Trump is not honest, compared to 35 percent who think he is
  • 59 percent say he does not have good leadership skills, compared to 38 percent who think he does
  • 57 percent believe he does not care about average Americans; 40 percent think he does

It wasn't all bad, though:

Voters among the president's base approve of the job he is doing by 50 percent to 43 percent.

  • 61 percent of all respondents say he is a strong person, versus 36 percent.
  • 54 percent of voters say he is intelligent; 40 percent disagree.

"For President Donald Trump, it's a troubling trifecta," assistant poll director Tim Malloy said in a statement. "Stagnant approval numbers, low grades on most character traits and the reality that if parents are looking for someone their kids can emulate, that person is not residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue."

The poll of 1,245 adults taken between Jan. 19-23 has a 3.3 percent margin of error.
