Hopes of resolving tensions with North Korea have reached an all-time high, with 65 percent of voters saying the U.S. can reach a diplomatic solution with the Hermit nation, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll.

However, just 44 percent believe that President Donald Trump is prepared for negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un; 49 percent don't think he's prepared, according to the survey.

More results on North Korea, according to Quinnipiac:

  • 16 percent overall believe military force will be needed.
  • 19 percent said they didn't know if a diplomatic solution could be reached.
  • 69 percent overall approve of Trump's meeting with Kim.
  • 65 percent don't think North Korea will give up its nuclear weapons.

"Should President Donald Trump meet Kim Jung Un eyeball to eyeball? 'Absolutely,' say American voters," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. "Will a deal be struck? 'Looks good,' voters say.

"But is the president equipped to handle negotiations? That's where the doubt creeps in," Malloy said.

Trump's approval rating is at 40 percent, up 2 points from two weeks ago, vs. 53 percent who disapprove, according to Quinnipiac.

Just 30 percent say they are proud to have Trump as their president vs. 50 percent who are embarrassed by him.

That breakdown:

  • 25 percent of independents are proud to call Trump president.
  • 46 percent of independents are embarrassed.
  • 20 percent of Republicans are neither proud nor embarrassed.
  • 41 percent of white men are proud vs. 35 percent who are embarrassed.
  • 30 percent of white women are proud vs. 53 percent who are embarrassed.

From March 16-20, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,291 voters nationwide with a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.
