Poll: Trump Approval Falls as Majority of Americans Brace for Recession


By QUINT FORGEY 09/10/2019 07:21 AM EDT Updated 09/10/2019 10:44 AM EDT

President Donald Trump’s job approval rating fell several points in a new survey, while Americans’ fears of a looming recession have escalated and their confidence in Trump’s handling of the economy has sagged.

Thirty-eight percent of respondents in an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Tuesday approve of Trump’s performance in office, a drop of 6 percentage points from a peak of 44 percent approval in July. A majority, 56 percent, disapprove of the way Trump is handling his job as president, while 6 percent have no opinion.

Americans’ opinions on Trump’s stewardship of the economy, which his campaign plans to emphasize to voters as he battles for a second term, have also diminished, according to the survey.

Less than half of respondents, 46 percent, approve of the way the president is handling the economy, a decrease from 51 percent approval in midsummer. Fewer of those polled, 35 percent, approve of the way the president is handling trade negotiations with China, and 60 percent worry the trade conflict between the two countries will raise the price of goods for their families.

4. Here's the problem...

There isn't any hint of a recession.

The MSM has been trying to incite one by shit talking the economy.

7. I'm seeing some signs here locally. Get out more and look around. Of course as a rule, Michigan is

most always the first to show signs of a national recession.

1 years from to today, the US will be in recession. Bookmark this...

12. Recession has a definition.

2 straight quarters with negative GDP.

Q2 was 2.0%

The last "mini recession" we had was Q4-15 and Q1-16 at less than 1%...

13. And there will be/are noticeable indicators present before the official definition is established.

Recessions just don't happen overnight. You know that, right?

16. Recessions happen approx every 7 years, on average.

I'm going to call q4-15/q1-16 a near recession so I think we're in the clear for 3 more years.

19. What "signs" are you seeing there in Michigan? Trash truck running a little slower than usual?

Neighbor has fewer cars parked in his yard? Not as much traffic down at Church's chicken house?

Inquiring minds NEED to know!
