That's part of an overall downward trend over the past year, according to Quinnipiac.

The new numbers were released days after the president proclaimed that he was intelligent, in the wake of a new tell-all book that claimed aides were unsure of his mental capacities. The White House has disavowed the book.

"Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart," Trump tweeted on Saturday, the day after the book, Fire and Fury, was released. He also said he was a "very stable genius."
