Donald Trump's Approval Rating Drops Below 40 Percent in Three New Polls

The Post and ABC put out new polling data which shows Trump down 6 points from his approval numbers in July and 5 points down on his handling of the economy.

Another finding that could be cause for worry at the White House: 43 percent of those surveyed said United States trade and economic policies have increased the chance of recession next year, compared to 16 percent who thought that to the contrary they have made recession less likely.

In addition, 6 in 10 Americans surveyed believed a recession is likely to hit the USA next year.

According to the poll, Trump's approval sits at 38 percent with 56 percent disapproving.

The approval rating for the president in relation to the economy also dipped down below half to 48 percent, while his approval for other policies sank below the 40s. "Internal polling looks great, the best ever!" "We're winning in Texas very big, in OH very big, in Florida very big", Trump said on June 12, adding, "They were fake polls that were either put out by the corrupt media, much of the media in this country is corrupt".

When Fox News released a poll in August showing Trump losing head-to-head match-ups with four top contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination, the president again blamed the messenger. "And I'm not happy with it".

Abe reportedly told Xi that Trump trusts the Chinese president, but Xi continued to voice frustration and the big reason for his distrust is how the USA has handled Chinese telecom giant Huawei, which has been banned from us networks and from buying American tech. However, although 56 percent of those surveyed in the Post/ABC poll said the economy was in "excellent" or "good" condition, the figure shows a sharp drop from previous year, when 65 percent viewed the economy as favorable. It has a plus/minus 3.5 percentage point margin of error.

Trump, who regularly complains about unfavorable polls, denounced the latest poll as "the worst and most inaccurate poll of any" since his 2016 election.

"I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man who doesn't deserve it", tweeted Cohen, who is now serving a three-year prison sentence for violating campaign finance laws, bank and tax fraud, and lying to Congress about efforts by the Trump organization to build a skyscraper in Moscow.
