Trump has always had high marks on the economy. Now that’s slipping

… Since Trump took office, Fox News has been asking Americans whether they “approve” or “disapprove” of Trump’s handling of the economy. Trump received in the high 40s all through the spring, even as his overall presidential approval numbers sank to 40 percent (or worse). But the latest Fox poll, released last week, fell to 45 percent approval on the economy.

For the first time in his presidency, more Americans disapproved of how he was managing the economy than approved, according to the poll. It could end up being a temporary dip. Polling data is noisy. Plus, his approval on the economy is still better than his overall rating. But it’s not the only sign of trouble. CONT.
