Poll: Trump job approval hits new low

President Trump's job approval rating has hit a new low, according to a new survey.

A Politico/Morning Consult poll finds just 40 percent of registered voters approve of the job Trump is doing in office.

Just 18 percent of respondents approve strongly of the president's performance.


Trump's approval rating among Trump voters and Republicans has also dropped.

Eighty-one percent of self-identified Trump voters now approve of the job Trump is doing, down 5 points in a week. 

About three-quarters of Republicans, 76 percent, approve of the job Trump is doing, meanwhile, down from 79 percent in last week's poll.

The poll was conducted from Aug. 3 to 6 among 1,992 registered voters. The margin of error is 2 percentage points.

The president in recent days has been touting his successes since assuming office.

On Tuesday night, he urged people not to believe the "Fake News Suppression Polls."

"After 200 days, rarely has any Administration achieved what we have achieved..not even close!" he tweeted.

Earlier this week, he tweeted that his base is "stronger" and "far bigger" than ever before.

The poll was conducted before Trump on Tuesday ratcheted up the rhetoric on North Korea, warning Pyongyang's threats would be met with "fire, fury and, frankly, power."
