2 new polls show sharp drops in Trump's approval, honesty, intelligence ratings

"American voters don't want Congress to tell President Donald Trump, 'You're fired!' by serving him with articles of impeachment", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the poll. "But it is clearly not the only thing that matters, and in a news cycle increasingly driven by the president, an terrible lot of new things are entering the lexicon of everyday Americans".

Each book describes a White House in chaos and Trump aides shielding the president from information in efforts to curb potentially unsafe policies or actions.

In public appearances throughout the year, House Speaker Paul Ryan and top House Republicans have taken every opportunity to promote the economy.

He also tweeted a wildly inaccurate statement that gross domestic product growth in the second quarter was higher than the unemployment rate for the first time "in over 100 years". They appear to be at least slight favorites to do so, as of now.

The new numbers from the eight polls mark the president's lowest approval rating in six months.

Several recent polls show Trump at or under a 40 percent approval rating, and analysts consider that a danger sign less than two months before midterm elections where control of Congress is at stake.




Trump's decreasing popularity with voters outside of the Republican Party can have a major effect in the results of the upcoming midterm elections.

Of course, Republicans would prefer a good economy over a bad one as they campaign through an unpopular presidency.

The poll carried a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points. This is a three-point drop from the president's previous average approval rating of 41 percent.

As Newsweek reports, when asked if they believed the 45th president is intelligent, just 51 percent answered that they do, while 42 percent answered that they did not.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request to comment on the poll.
