A Politico/Morning Consult poll found that most voters, 56 percent, say Trump is reckless. On the other hand, only 31 percent disagree.

In addition, only 35 percent of those polled called Trump honest, while 51 percent say he is not honest.

Fifty percent of voters also think Trump is sexist, while 35 percent say he isn’t.

Trump’s overall approval rating hasn’t changed much in the past few months, with 42 percent approving and 53 percent disapproving.
