A Quinnipiac University poll released on Wednesday asked respondents: “What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Donald Trump?”

The most common responses – “idiot,” “incompetent,” and “liar” – did not reflect well on the president, whose approval ratings from the same poll are near record lows.

The most common words were:

1. “Idiot,” 39 times 2. “Incompetent,” 31 times 3. “Liar,” 30 times 4. “Leader,” 25 times 5. “Unqualified,” 25 times 6. “President,” 22 times 7. “Strong,” 21 times 8. “Businessman,” 18 times 9. “Ignorant,” 16 times 10. “Egotistical,” 15 times

Other popular ones were “a——,” “stupid,” “arrogant,” “trying,” and “bully.”

The full list of words most commonly associated with Trump.

In an August 2015 Quinnipiac poll, respondents were asked the same question about the presidential candidates. The most common words associated with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton were “liar” and “dishonest,” while the top responses for Trump were “arrogant” and “blowhard.”
