President Donald Trump's job approval rating has dropped from a career-high of 44% to 38%, with 56% disapproving, while six in 10 Americans believe there will be a recession within the next year and an equal number are concerned that prices will rise because of the trade war with China, an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Tuesday shows.

The telephone poll conducted from Sept. 2-5 among a random sample of 1,003 adults with a 3.5-point margin of error showed Trump's overall job approval rating remained high among Republicans, at 82%, but was at 8% with Democrats and 36% with independents.

Trump's overall approval rating was at 43% in the red states he won in the 2016 election, compared to 32% approval in the blue states.

By the numbers:

  • Trump is down 5 percentage points on the economy, from 51% to 46%.
  • 35% approve of his handling of China's trade negotiations.
  • 56% have a positive view of the economy, down from 65% last fall.
  • 46% say Trump's policies increase recession chances.

Trump's job performance rating was tied into attitudes on the economy:

  • 20% approval from people who see a recession as likely.
  • 19% from people who think the China deal will cost them money.
  • 50% approval from people who don't fear recession or higher prices.

By other partisan lines:

  • Republicans: 90% rate the economy positively.
  • Democrats: 33% gave the economy positive ratings.
  • Independents: 52% have positive ratings on the economy.
  • 33% of Republicans fear a recession.
  • 60% of independents fear a recession.
  • 83% of Democrats predict a recession.

Trump's approval rate also marks a gender gap, as he has a 47% approval among men and 30% among women. He has also lost points since July with urban residents, college graduates, and women.

His number showed:

  • 48% approval from whites.
  • 25% from Hispanics.
  • 10% among African-Americans.
  • 69% from men with no college degree.
  • 42% from white women with no college degree.
  • 34% of college-educated white men.
