President Trump‘s approval rating fell four points this week after getting a brief uptick amid news of economic growth, according to a new American Barometer poll.
The survey, a joint project of Hill.TV and HarrisX polling company, found that 47 percent of voters said they approved of Trump’s job as president, when asked on August 6-7.
That was below the 51 percent of respondents who said they approved of Trump’s job as president when asked the same question on August 3-4.
The poll last week came on the heels of positive economic news for the administration, after the Labor Department announced early on Aug. 3 that the 157,000 jobs were added to the economy.
Trump frequently boasts about economic gains, crediting the Republican-backed tax plan and his regulation policies. http://thehill.com/hilltv/what-americas-thinking/400919-poll-trumps-approval-rating-falls-four-points?__twitter_impression=true
