Trump’s tweet came hours after a new CNN poll showedÂ Democrats continuing to hold a double-digit leadÂ over Republicans in a generic congressional ballot among likely voters.Â
The poll also found Trump’s approval rating at 39 percent overall, with a 55 percent of those polled disapproving of his job performance. That is the worst pre-election approval rating for any president ahead of their first midterm election, CNN reported.Â
Other pollsÂ indicate slightly higher approval ratings for Trump, withÂ polling analysis website FiveThirtyEight placing him at a 41.9 percent approval rating on Nov. 5.Â
A Harvard-Harris poll released last week found Trump’s approval rating at 44 percent among registered voters and 46 percent among likely voters.
Thirty-three percent ofÂ registeredÂ voters in the poll said their midterm election votes will be a signal of support for Trump while 40 percent said it will be a signal of opposition to the president. Twenty-seven percent said they are not voting according to their disposition on Trump.
An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll in late October found Trump’s approval rating ahead of the midterm elections at a higher level than former President Obama’s ahead of the 2010 midterms.Â
The poll found Trump’s approval rating at its highest level for that poll yet, at 47 percent. Obama’s approval rating was at 45 percent around the same time in 2010, according toÂ a similarÂ NBC/Wall Street Journal pollÂ takenÂ inÂ late October 2010.Â
The new CNNÂ poll surveyedÂ 1,151 likely votersÂ between Nov. 1-3 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.Â Â
Most polls have Democrats at an advantage on generic congressional ballotsÂ and the party is widelyÂ expected to winÂ back the HouseÂ on Tuesday.
