Donald Trump 911 Attacks Poll Numbers

The uncertainty about the economy has affected Trump's job approval ratings.

Most Americans don't trust what they hear from official White House communications, according to a new CNN poll released Tuesday afternoon.

According to the Post/ABC findings, voters are deeply opposed to the way he has handled the intensifying trade war with China. Fifty-six percent said they disapprove of how the president is handling trade negotiations with China, compared to 35% who said they approve.

He has an 82 percent approval rating among Republicans, near the high of 87 percent in July. Trump's approval rating dropped below 40 percent in three new polls. Many economists and experts have interpreted the trend as a sign of a looming recession.

Nine percent of the respondents in the current poll, conducted for CNN by SSRS from September 5-9, said they trust nearly everything they hear, and 19% said they trust most of what they hear. Trump's handling of the economy also slipped by five percentage points to 46 percent approval, a five percent drop from 51 percent in July.

Moreover, six in ten Americans surveyed said a recession was very or somewhat likely 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".

The numbers of people who said Trump should not be reelected was greater than the numbers recorded in polls of his predecessors, with an October 2003 USA Today poll showing 52% thought George W. Bush should not be reelected. Most also believe that there's a direct correlation between Trump's trade policies and the possibility that a recession will come to pass. "Internal polling looks great, the best ever!"

The president has often taken to Twitter to complain and dispute his approval ratings from various surveys.
