Amid numerous political scandals and an unfurling trade war with China that shows little sign of de-escalation, President Donald Trump lacks the broad confidence of the American public, according to a new AP-NORC poll.
Sixty-two percent of U.S. adults disapprove of the way Trump is handling his job, compared with 36 percent who approve. Predictably, the partisan divides swing favorably or unfavorably towards the president depending on political affiliation. But, notably, the coveted class of self-identified political independents remains opposed to the president, with 65 percent disapproving of the way he is handling his job.
Trump's approval ratings have not been this low in the monthly AP-NORC survey since January.
While many of the conflicts and controversies that have emerged in recent months pertain to the trade war and Trump's management of the economy including a warning sign that a recession may be on the horizon due to a metric known as the inverted yield curve the public has not been scared off by the president's economic stewardship. Fifty-one percent disapprove of his handling of the economy, and 46 percent approve. Though this is a net negative rating, it indicates the public is largely divided on the matter, and represents Trump's highest job approval rating for any category measured in the AP-NORC poll.

Is Newsweak actually still around?
Libs are in panic mode because not one of their 100 candidates have the charisma, energy, or truth that PDJT has.
So, they resort to the usual lies.

Insane Mediots publish their insanities posing as polls or news on a a regular basis.

Polls are to drive public opinion, not measure it.
I work with the public. Occasionally I get political comments.
Blacks and Hispanics tend to be pro-Trump.
Elderly Jewish women are most likely to be virulently anti-Trump, even though they are conservative (i.e. sensible) on social issues. It’s bewildering.
Black millennials seem to understands their race has been used by the rats.
The Clinton/Carville campaign was right about one thing... “It’s the economy, stupid.”
Polls are modern day propaganda.
