In the same period, Trump's approval dipped from 41 percent to 38 percent.

According to Vox, only one poll conducted by Rasmussen gave the president an approval rating above 45 percent. The proportion of voters who disapprove of the president - 54 percent - stayed the same.

The weekly poll from Gallup found Trump's overall approval slightly higher at 40 percent. The highest drop was noted in the CNN survey, which showed a six-point drop from its previous rating of 42 percent. Holding off electoral disaster becomes even more hard when that president has a low approval rating.

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

Although they back Democratic candidates over Republicans by a 14 percent margin - 52 to 38 percent margin - they don't want Congress to take action against Trump, a Quinnipiac University National Poll said. In CNN's poll, only 32 percent of adults said Trump is honest and trustworthy, a new low in CNN's polling.

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

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

Among independents the drop was sharper, from 47 percent approval last month to 31 percent now. In August, Trump's campaign manager Paul Manafort was convicted on charges of financial fraud.

The belief among voters that the president is not intelligent squares with claims made by two recent books, Unhinged by former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman and Fear by Watergate reporter Bob Woodward.

Also coming in the weeks ahead is what is known as the generic ballot poll, which simply asks voters about their party preference for November.

This year, though, the "negative toward both parties" group favors Democrats.
