Donald Trump's approval rating dips to 38% amid economic concerns

Gallup's latest figures also has Trump's approval rating at 39 percent, with 57 percent of respondents disapproving of the president's job performance.

According to the Washington Post, one poll at one time conducted by USA Today and Suffolk University in October 2018 did show Trump with a 94 percent accountability rating.

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

In the new poll, 46% said they approve of Mr. Trump's handling of the economy, compared to 47% who said they disapprove.

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

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

Trump has often touted America's strong economy as one of his main accomplishments throughout his presidency. That's a whopping 9-point slide since July.

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

Mr. Trump responded by saying the ABC News-Washington Post poll "was the worst and most inaccurate poll of any taken prior to the 2016 Election".

"One of the greatest and most powerful weapons used by the Fake and Corrupt News Media is the phony Polling Information they put out".

Mr. Trump added that many polls are "fixed". "Internal polling looks great, the best ever!"

The 39% he earned in this poll is the worst approval rating he's recorded since early January of this year, when the federal government shutdown occurred.
