According to Politico.com Blake Burman, on behalf of Fox Business issued a correction.

“According to a poll from Georgetown University, 58 percent of respondents approved of the president’s handling of the economy. That portion of the graphic was right,”

“However, the graphic also showed that 55 percent of the respondents approve of the president, that number is not correct. The 55 percent number was those who have an unfavorable impression of President Trump.”

Blake Burman quote from Politico on Poll Correction

Despite the correction Donald Trump has not removed the tweet.

The real number is 40% Approval, which has been the average for his entire term so far.

Thoughts

If it wasn’t Trump I would probably forgive the mistake, but inflated numbers is pretty much his MO. The wrong poll tweet has made news everywhere and he has yet to issue a statement of correction or take down the tweet. It just ties into his daily deception.
