The December 19 national poll found US voter economic outlook hits all-time high; but voters disapprove of Trump's handling of economy.

In the Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday, 39 percent of voters gave Trump a failing grade of F, while another 17 percent barely passed him with a D. Trump received an A or a B from 32 percent of voters. "Something noble about the presidency", former CBS news anchor Dan Rather told Salon in November.

The poll says that 51 percent of Americans answered that Democrats should not impeach the president if they regain the House in the midterm elections in 2018.

"President Trump can hang his hat on the economy, but must share the hat rack with President Barack Obama, as two-thirds of the country see the economic picture as excellent or good", Malloy said.

Regarding the nation's economy, 66 percent of respondents say it is "excellent" or "good", up from 63 percent last month.
