WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — By contrast, voters who disapproved of former President Barack Obama's job performance during his first year in office focused mainly on Obama’s policies and stances on issues, a press release accompanying the poll explained.

"Trump's unique personal style, brashness and disregard for conventional political norms and discourse… helped him stand out from other Republican contenders and ultimately contributed to his victory," the release stated. "Six months into his presidency, these same characteristics remain prominent in the minds of his detractors."

Sixty-five percent of Trump detractors surveyed cited character, personality while often mentioning the president’s temperament and tendency to act "nonpresidential," the release explained.

Others commented on Trump’s inexperience and offered explanations pertaining to his self-focus, Twitter use and perceived untrustworthiness, the report noted.

In a similar survey six-months into the Obama administration, 65 percent of Obama detractors cited issues and policies as the primary reasons for disliking the new president.
