One common thread in the latest batch of low polls for Trump is his declining rating among independent voters.

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

The weekly poll from Gallup found Trump's overall approval slightly higher at 40 percent.

Just over half of Americans think Donald Trump is intelligent, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. 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.

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 poll showed that 65 percent of the people surveyed believed Trump was not level-headed and 42 percent said he was not mentally stable.

Hurricane Florence makes turbulent arrival with strong winds, bands of rain
About 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were warned to evacuate, but it's unclear how many did, officials said. Footage shows a pier and a beach in Nags Head, North Carolina, being hit with heavy surf as the storm rolls into the area.

Democrats, however, now hold a 52-38 advantage over Republicans when voters are asked which party they would rather support in a congressional election, marking a slight uptick from the poll last month.

Trump's decreasing popularity with voters outside of the Republican Party can have a major effect in the results of the upcoming midterm elections. Republicans were the only group that trusted Trump more than the media, by 72 to 12 per cent. In August, Trump's campaign manager Paul Manafort was convicted on charges of financial fraud.

The president did so on Monday morning, as he combats a narrative of chaos that has re-emerged with the release of veteran journalist Bob Woodward's book about his White House.

This, together with Trump choosing Brett Kavanaugh, an unpopular candidate, as Supreme Court nominee, might make it hard for the administration to project a confident image, which might be reflected in the November polls, Vox reported. The Real Clear Politics average this week puts Democrats ahead of Republicans by a margin of 47 percent to 39 percent.
