Skip to comments.Trump approval drops by 6 points, majority say recession likely: POLL
Posted on 09/10/2019 9:48:48 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Six in 10 Americans say a recession is likely in the next year and as many are concerned about higher prices because of the trade war with China, helping to knock 6 points off President Donald Trumps job approval rating in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll.
Trump fell from a career-high 44% approval in July to 38% now, a point off his career average, with 56% disapproving. His average rating since taking office remains the lowest on record for any modern president at a comparable point in his term, and he is the first never to have achieved majority approval.
Trump has slipped by a slight 5 percentage points specifically on his handling of the economy, from 51% approval in midsummer to 46% now. Fewer -- 35% -- approve of his handling of trade negotiations with China, and 60% are concerned that the trade dispute will raise the price of things they buy.
Ratings of the U.S. economy overall, 56% positive, are down from 65% last fall in this poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates. Most ominously, 60% see a recession as very or somewhat likely in the next year. Thats within sight of the 69% who said so in November 2007, in advance of the Great Recession.
In another measure, Trump gets far more criticism than credit for his economic stewardship. Americans by nearly a 3-1 margin, 43-16%, say his trade and economic policies have increased rather than decreased the chance of a recession in the next year.

Stopped reading at “A”.
I wonder how many polls they took to get the results they wanted.
Cry “The Sky is Falling!” with a big enough megaphone and people will believe it.
Precisely why I don’t do polls.
The poverty rate is down. Wages are up.
In other news, Trump only has a 2 percent chance of becoming president.
This ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Sept. 2-5, 2019, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 1,003 adults. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 28-24-37%, Democrats-Republicans-independents.
The survey was produced for ABC News by Langer Research Associates of New York, New York, with sampling and data collection by Abt Associates of Rockville, Md. See details on the surveys methodology here.
All this after the head of the Fed gave exactly the opposite assessment. FAKE PUSH POLL NEWS!
Lamestream media YELLING RECESSION for a week to hurt Trump!
Oh, and Trump will never be President.
Again, stopped reading at “A”.
Can’t seem to get past it, such a dishonorable letter in this case.
Need a Scooby Doo government/ media monster mask for Climate Change, White Supremacy and Russia, Russia too.
So many government bogeymen. We are so fortunate to have them protect us from them.
Must be more listening to CNN than I thought. ;)
Random sample of adults. I stopped reading there.
