Trump Tweets Incorrect Fox Business Graphic, Celebrates Strong Disapproval

While it seems that his polling numbers look abysmal and he's having a tough time moving north of 50% approval ratings, it's worth noting that Trump rarely outpaced Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election polls, so there might be some sense in not reading too much into his current polling.

The 58 percent approval rating on the economy shown in the graphic does accurately show what the poll found.

But the poll in question actually showed Trump with a 43 percent approval rating - the 55 percent figure is actually his unfavorable rating.

Trump's approval ratings have fluctuated over the past few years, but there haven't been many polls that have come out in his favor.

But the Battleground Poll's overall takeaways are decidedly negative.

Trump's job approval rating on nearly all the other specific issues polled was also net negative, with the exception of how he handles "jobs". "This graphic is incorrect", Elleithee tweeted. The same poll found Trump's overall approval rating at 43%.

"The graphic also showed that 55 percent of the respondents approve of the president, that number is not correct", he said. "(Only 40% favorable)" tweeted Mr. Elleithee, who is a frequent Fox News guest as well.

"The president's victories are showing up in the polls, according to a Georgetown University poll".

UPDATE: Fox Business issued an on-air correction to the poll on Thursday morning.

Georgetown said the poll surveyed 1,000 registered and "likely" voters between March 31 and April 4.

After eight hours, Trump had still not taken down his tweet boasting about the incorrectly reported approval rating. The results had a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.
