President Trump’s best job ratings continue to be on the economy: 49 percent approve vs. 46 percent disapprove. He gets negative marks on border security (43-53 percent), immigration (42-54 percent), and foreign policy (38-53 percent).
-- Voters are less satisfied about the direction of the country.
Six in 10 (61 percent) are dissatisfied with how things are going in the country. That’s worse than the 53 percent who were unhappy at Trump’s 100-day mark (April 2017).
