Holding off electoral disaster becomes even more hard when that president has a low approval rating.

The poll's release Wednesday followed the release of another poll, from NPR-Marist, that found the Democrats with a double-digit lead over Republicans among registered voters.

White voters favor Republicans by 48 - 45 percent.

In an Economist-YouGov poll released Wednesday, 34 percent of USA adults said they wanted to see Democrats retake control of the House, while another 32 percent said they wanted Republicans to maintain control of the chamber.

The latest CNN poll has Trump's approval rate at 36 percent, down from 42 last month.

Voters appear convinced that the economy is strong, but a majority of voters either do not associate it with Trump, the Republican Party's leading figure, or disapprove of the president for other reasons.

Instead, the president is repeatedly muddling that message with easily debunked falsehoods or hyperbole about the state of the economy while pressing on with unpopular trade wars that frustrate establishment Republicans and business groups anxious about price increases.

"American voters don't want Congress to tell President Donald Trump, 'You're fired!' by serving him with articles of impeachment", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the poll.

"By a 14-point margin, Americans would rather vote for the Democratic candidate in their local race for the U.S. House of Representatives".

Seventy percent of voters describe the USA economy as "excellent" or "good" in a new Quinnipiac University poll, matching the survey's all-time high.

The president's party often gets clobbered in midterm election years.

The poll also showed the bind Mr. Trump is in.

But according to Quinnipiac's most recent poll, 70 percent of respondents labeled the economy as "excellent" or "good", which has allowed Trump to hold on to his base of Republicans.
