But the Battleground Poll, which the graphic cited, actually found Trump suffers from 55 per cent disapproval, and just 41 per cent approval.

But the poll in question actually showed Trump with a 43 percent approval rating - the 55 percent figure is actually his unfavorable rating.

An on-air correction was also offered on Fox News Channel. But the graphic wasn't entirely wrong - the poll did find that Trump had a 58% approval rating on the economy.

President Trump on Thursday shared an inaccurate graphic on Twitter that significantly overstated his overall job approval rating in a new poll and falsely suggested it was "soaring".

According to an aggregation of polling data, the website FiveThirtyEight gives Trump an approval rating of 41.9 percent and an overall disapproval rating of 52.8 percent. The only poll that found his approval rating to be above his disapproval rating was the recent Rasmussen Reports poll, which tends to skew to the right.
