President Donald Trump’s approval numbers on his overall job performance and handling of the economy are slumping, and it’s clearly hitting a nerve with the thin-skinned Commander-in-Chief.
ABC/Washington Post Poll was the worst and most inaccurate poll of any taken prior to the 2016 Election. When my lawyers protested, they took a 12 point down and brought it to almost even by Election Day. It was a Fake Poll by two very bad and dangerous media outlets. Sad!

According to the poll, Trump’s approval sits at 38 percent with 56 percent disapproving. That’s a whopping 9-point slide since July.
Approval of his handling of the economy stands at 46 percent approval to 47 percent disapproval, a net 10 point drop since July.
In a telling question from the poll, 6 in 10 people rated a recession as “somewhat likely” or “very likely” to hit next year.
Approval of Trump’s handling of the economy has long been a positive point amid a slew of negative opinions of his handling of other issues. Reports have revealed the President to be worried about the economy staggering, fearing that it’ll be a body blow to his reelection chances.
The ABC/Washington Post poll was conducted from September 2 to 5 among a random sample of just over 1,000 adults. The margin of error is 3.5 points.
