In this Aug. 21, 2019 photo, President Donald Trump arrives at the White House in Washington, as he returns from Louisville, Ky. A new poll finds about 6 in 10 Americans disapprove of President Donald Trump’s overall job performance. The poll released Thursday by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds some support for the president’s handling of the U.S. economy, but it gives him weak marks on other major issues. Just 36% of Americans approve of the way Trump is handling his job as president, and 62% disapprove. Among Republicans, nearly 8 in 10 approve of his overall job performance.
