Poll: Unlike predecessors, Trump rated worse on character than issues

More U.S. adults say they agree with Donald Trump on issues (40%) than say he has the personality and leadership qualities a president should have (34%). That is a departure from what Gallup measured for former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, who consistently scored better on personality and leadership than on issue agreement when in office.

On average, Americans rated Obama better on personality than on issues by 14 percentage points, 60% to 46%. For Bush, the average was nine points higher on personality, 59% to 50%. Americans rate Trump lower on personality than on issues by six points.
