Trump's Approval Rating Drops To 38 Per Cent Amid Worry Over Economy

The uncertainty about the economy has affected Trump's job approval ratings.

According to the new poll published Tuesday, 60 percent of American polled said that the president did not deserve re-election, while only 36 percent said that the president did deserve re-election.

According to the Post/ABC findings, voters are deeply opposed to the way he has handled the intensifying trade war with China.

Trump also gets bad marks for his handling of the economy - 47 percent disapprove to 46 percent who approve - and trade talks with China - 56 percent disapprove to 35 percent who approve.

The survey of 1,639 adults revealed 71% trust only some or nothing of what they're hearing from the White House, marking nearly the same level of trust, 68%, they felt in late 2017 as President Donald Trump wrapped up his first year in office.

He has an 82 percent approval rating among Republicans, near the high of 87 percent in July.

US President Donald Trump speaks at the 2019 National Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week Conference, on September 10, 209, in Washington, DC. Compared to our last poll, his approval rating is down a statistically insignificant 1 point (from 40%) and his disapproval rating is up 1 point (from 54%). Many economists and experts have interpreted the trend as a sign of a looming recession.

In a telling question from the poll, 6 in 10 people rated a recession as "somewhat likely" or "very likely" to hit next year.

President Donald Trump appeared to be rattled on Tuesday when he used his daily Twitter proclamations to rail against polling conducted by ABC and Washington Post. "Many of these polls are fixed, or worked in such a way that a certain candidate will look good or bad".

Chalian also pointed out that in their new polling that the president's favorability rating had fallen to 39 percent, which was the lowest since January.
