TopStory - Most US voters oppose Trump's impeachment

The shift is particularly acute in the US Midwest, where Democrats have enjoyed a 13-point swing in their direction since July, according to the poll.

In the poll of 949 adults, half of voters (50 percent) said they were more likely to vote for the Democrat in their district over the Republican (38 percent) - an increase from July, when the Democratic edge was 47 to 40 percent.

The CNN poll found only 32 percent of respondents who believe Trump is "honest and trustworthy", though the president got his highest marks for handling of the economy at 49 percent.

Earlier this summer, Quinnipiac found 57 percent thought the president was intelligent.

Instead, the president is repeatedly muddling that message with easily debunked falsehoods or hyperbole about the state of the economy while pressing on with unpopular trade wars that frustrate establishment Republicans and business groups anxious about price increases. Woodward's book, which is viewed as particularly credible, recounted the stopping of a tweet that North Korea could have taken as a sign of an upcoming invasion or attack.

The poll also showed the bind Mr. Trump is in. The anonymous official wrote that the Trump administration had been successful despite the president's actions, and said Trump was amoral while claiming to be part of a "resistance" inside the administration fending off the president's ill-advised impulses.

According to a report from Chinese outlet Kanka News , the market value of Xiabu Xiabu has been on a downward trend since August. Xiabu Xiabu released a statement on Saturday night saying that it valued food security and would make improvements.

Trump has an approval rating of 84 percent and 82 percent among Republicans, according to the Quinnipiac and CNN poll respectively, showing that his support within the party remains strong.

The Quinnipiac poll was conducted between September 6 and 9, smack in the heart of the controversy surrounding The Times op-ed.

The proportion of voters describing the economy as "excellent" or "good" rose to 70 percent from 67 percent in August, according to the Quinnipiac survey.

"American voters believe those tales of intrigue coming from the Trump White House, but they think it's wrong to tell those tales anonymously", Tim Malloy, assistant director of the poll, said in a statement.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request to comment on the poll.

Democrats need to flip 23 seats in the 435-member House of Representatives to reclaim the majority, a goal several experts say is likely to be met.
