Most US voters oppose Trump's impeachment: new poll

Voters love the economy, but it has failed to translate into higher approval for President Donald Trump, according to one new poll.

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

Eight polling bodies - ABC News/Washington Post, CNN, Gallup, IBD/TIPP, the Kaiser Family Foundation, Quinnipiac University, Grinnell College/Selzer & Co, and Suffolk University - gave the president an average approval rating of 38 percent, a drop of three points from Trump's previous approval polling average, the Vox website reported Tuesday. The increase comes nearly entirely among independents - 47% now say the President ought to be impeached, up from 38% in June - who have also soured on Trump's job performance generally.

Americans are happy with the economy, according to two polls released Monday.

"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.

But the strong outlook has not lifted Trump. Only 38% of voters approve of the job he is doing versus 54% who disapprove according to the survey

Democrats hold a slim lead over Republicans on a poll of USA adults' preferences for which party they want controlling the House after November's midterm elections.

The Quinnipiac poll found that 55 percent of Americans believe Trump is not fit to serve as president, while 41 percent said he is capable.

The president's party often gets clobbered in midterm election years. Watergate reporter Bob Woodward published a book recently that depicted the current chaos in the White House as well.

Several recent polls show Trump at or under a 40 percent approval rating, and analysts consider that a danger sign less than two months before midterm elections where control of Congress is at stake.

Trump's overall popularity breaks down along lines of partisanship, ethnicity and gender, according to the poll.
