    Trump approval drops by 6 points, majority say recession likely: POLL

    Trump approval drops by 6 points, 6 in 10 call a recession likely: POLL - ABC News

    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 Trump’s 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.

    The folding money in your pocket or wallet is worth less today than it was last night. A 1964 dime, worth ten cents at the time, is 90% silver & is worth $1.40 today. A $5 roll of dimes in 1964 is worth $71 today.

    I have a difficult time believing there is still 38% approval.

    Some of that is people who would say "strongly approve" just because they know how awful he is and thus how low his numbers are with the rest of the nation.

    Given the nature of most of his supporters - I really don't have a hard time believing that they stick with him. They truly are deplorable.

    I don't. Dick Cheney had an approval rating of the high 20% in 2007. There are some true believers who will stay on to the bitter end claiming that he was never given a fair chance and blaming the swamp, Hillary, atheists, and the supposed deep state.

    The fact that even 38% approve of trump deeply saddens me.

    ^False statement.

    No, I'm not going to go find the links to show the headlines which you've probably seen but have conveniently forgotten.

    Maybe someone else will play that with you.

    as much as i want the idiot clown to lose, i hope that it happens without a recession. i've already been through one Republican economic collapse as a working adult, and it was not fun.
