CNN's latest poll on President Donald Trump

Another finding that could be cause for worry at the White House: 43 percent of those surveyed said USA trade and economic policies have increased the chance of recession next year, compared to 16 percent who thought that to the contrary they have made recession less likely.

But after a Trump staffer leaked the results of an internal poll taken in May that reportedly showed the president trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in key battleground states, the president alleged a conspiracy.

Trump also gets bad marks for his handling of the economy - 47 percent disapprove to 46 percent who approve - and trade talks with China - 56 percent disapprove to 35 percent who approve.

US President Donald Trump speaks at the 2019 National Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week Conference, on September 10, 209, in Washington, DC. Compared to our last poll, his approval rating is down a statistically insignificant 1 point (from 40%) and his disapproval rating is up 1 point (from 54%).

The ten-year Treasury note dropped below the two-year yield last month for the first time in over a decade.

She said officials had already interviewed the owner-operator of the dive boat, but didn't offer any further details. Authorities have been trying to determine the cause of the fire and why no one below the deck was able to escape.

Although 56 percent of those surveyed judged the state of the economy to be "excellent" or "good", that is down sharply from a year ago when those favorable ratings stood at 65 percent.

While Trump often portrays the polling taken in the waning days of the 2016 presidential election as wildly inaccurate, he often ignores the fact that Democrat Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by a margin of 2.1 percent. That's a whopping 9-point slide since July.

In a telling question from the poll, 6 in 10 people rated a recession as "somewhat likely" or "very likely" to hit next year. "One of the greatest and most powerful weapons used by the Fake and Corrupt News Media is the phony Polling Information they put out", the president added. Earlier this week, Trump tweeted, "94% Approval Rating in the Republican Party, a record".

The president has often taken to Twitter to complain and dispute his approval ratings from various surveys.
