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.
Forty-three percent of Americans, meanwhile, said the impact of Trump’s economic policies will increase the chance of a recession.
Americans’ positive outlook on the U.S. economy overall is also down 9 points, from 65 to 56 percent. Moreover, the poll found 60 percent of Americans think a recession next year is “likely” and 60 percent are more concerned the U.S.-China trade dispute will raise prices.
