Trump’s Approval Rating Sags Amid Recession Fears

The Hill reports:

President Trump’s approval rating dropped 6 points in a new poll as Americans voice concerns about the economy. Trump’s approval rating fell to 38 percent after July’s career-high 44 percent approval, based on the ABC News/Washington Post poll released Tuesday.

The survey also found that 46 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s handling of the economy and only 35 percent approve of his performance of trade negotiations with China.

Among those who believe a recession is likely, Trump’s approval rating is just 20 percent, based on the poll. With Republicans generally, Trump still maintains high levels of approval, though it dropped from 5 points to 82 percent after his peak at 87 percent in July.
