Overall, 69 percent of Americans have a good view about the condition of the economy, compared to just 30 percent who have a poor view of it.

Trump also has a negative job approval rating, according to the poll. Just 36 percent of respondents approve of the job the president is doing, compared to 58 percent who disapprove.

The poll comes after the GOP's push to repeal and replace ObamaCare collapsed in the Senate last month.

Now, some lawmakers are pushing for Republicans to continue their healthcare push while others are arguing the GOP should move on to other agenda items, such as tax reform.

The poll was conducted from August 3 to 6 among 1,111 adults. The margin of error is 4 percentage points.
