The majority of Americans (61%) say Donald Trump is the least helpful spokesperson for his own brand, according to a new Monmouth University poll. Most notably, 53% of Americans say Vice President Mike Pence helps the administration's cause when he speaks, while the majority of Americans have no opinion of Sarah Huckabee Sanders at all.

Here's a full breakdown of how Americans think certain White House officials hurt vs. help the Administration's causes when they speak to the public:

  • Donald Trump: 61% vs. 33% (hurts vs. helps)
  • Sean Spicer: 42% vs. 28%
  • Kellyanne Conway: 40% vs. 28%
  • Mike Pence: 29% vs. 53%
  • Sarah Huckabee Sanders: 22% vs. 23%

Why it matters: It's no surprise that the results also show a typical partisan split, with Republicans being more likely to see these officials as doing a good job as a mouthpiece for the administration than Democrats. But it's interesting to note that both parties feel most confident in Pence's ability to speak on behalf of the administration than anyone else surveyed, with 87% of Republicans saying he helps and 32% of Democrats saying the same.
