Trump’s approval rating sinks amid worry over economy, poll finds

Trump loses support as 6 in 10 Americans say recession is likely next year: poll

CNN political director David Chalian said that of all the numbers in a new CNN poll that one should send a "chill" down the spine of the re-election campaign for President Donal Trump.

Sixty per cent said they were anxious that the trade war with China would increase the price of consumer products for their families.

That economic anxiety has helped push Trump's job approval numbers down from 44 percent in July to just 38 percent in September, the poll found.

President Donald Trump and the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll.

The president wasted little time disputing the poll's results. Following the dual congressional victories of Republicans in North Carolina, including one that Democrats increasingly believed they could flip, Trump pointed again to the "fake poll" as more evidence that the media is trying to manipulate the public to thwart his reelection.

A recent CNN poll conducted by SSRS found that six in 10 Americans say Trump does not deserve to be reelected, reflecting the 63% who felt that way in November 2017. Not only do the polls show him losing, but losing now by increasing margins.

Over Trump, registered voters preferred former Vice President Joe Biden (55% to 40%), Vermont Sen. "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". "And I'm not happy with it".

United States President Donald Trump enjoys a 94 percent approval rating with Republican voters. While most of the final polls taken ahead of Election Day showed Clinton ahead of Trump by a margin of 3 to 6 percentage points, only Monmouth University's 6 point lead fell outside of the margin of error. "ABC/Washington Post Poll was the worst and most inaccurate poll of any taken prior to the 2016 Election". Trump wailed about the poll yesterday for showing that Americans fear his policies could lead to recession, and now he's complaining that his ratings would be much higher if not for the "fake news" media.

The health of the United States economy is one of the central themes of Trump's campaign for re-election to a second four-year term in 2020, hammered at by the president and his aides at every opportunity.
