George Conway retweets slew of polls showing Trump approval in decline

But new polls indicate Trump may now be settling into an approval trough.

About two-thirds of U.S. voters believe the unflattering allegations about President Trump in an anonymous column published last week in The New York Times - a piece the president has panned as all lies, a new poll said Monday.

Conway has frequently criticized Trump throughout his presidency, and retweeted last week's anonymous New York Times op-ed warning that Trump is a unsafe and amoral leader. Just 17 percent have said that it was not happening at all.

58 percent of Americans say the anonymous White House official who wrote an op-ed piece criticizing Trump should come forward; 55 percent said it's inappropriate for that official to work against the president.

"The economy booms, but President Donald Trump's numbers are a bust", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll.


The President's favorability rating - a measure of whether people like him, rather than approve of his job performance - has also taken a hit in this poll, with 61% saying they have unfavorable views of Trump, up from 55% in June. Four in 10 say the President can bring the kind of change the country needs, down 5 points from March and matching a November 2017 low.

"Is President Trump fit to serve as president?"

Voters disapprove by 54 percent to 38 percent of the job Trump is doing, with the only listed groups approving of Trump being Republicans by 84 percent to 7 percent, and white voters with no college degree, who approve by 51 percent to 40 percent.

One interesting contrast in the data: Trump fares slightly better in perceptions of his ability to manage the government generally than his ability to manage his own White House. A Quinnipiac poll measured Trump's approval at 38%, down from 41% a month prior. "Each one has Trump's approval dropping from the last poll".
