The vast majority of Republican voters approve of the US economy’s state and how the government handled the C-19 coronavirus, a new poll shows.
Heading into the GOP convention Monday, 75% of Republicans say the US is in better condition than it was 4 years ago, with 82% crediting President Trump for that, according to the national survey from CBS News and pollster YouGov released Sunday.
Almost 70% of Republicans said the national economy is “good” and that US handling of the coronavirus is “going well,” with 57% saying that the number of US deaths from the virus has been “acceptable.” About 67% of Republican respondents said the Covid-19 death count is much lower than reported.
American voters who consider themselves “in play” for the 2020 Presidential election give President Trump a 10-pt edge in those that hold a “positive” view of the President Vs those who have a “positive” view of Slow Joe Biden, according to The Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.
“These voters as a group have characteristics that suggest they are open to Mr. Trump and his party,” the WS-J reported Sunday. “Some 22% have a positive image of Mr. Trump, while only 11% have a positive image of Mr. Biden, the July poll found.”
Those likely voters prefer a candidate who will confront the Washington establishment, a hallmark of President Trump’s Drain the Swamp pledge. In addition, these voters want Republicans to lead the next Congress rather than Democrats, 42% to 25%.”
Hispanics, the largest minority voting bloc in the US, see President Trump gaining ground in the poll, as 31% say they will vote for President Trump Vs the 28% that voted for him in Y 2016, according to the survey.
In terms of the handling of the economy, the # 1 issue for voters in past Presidential elections, President Trump (48%) holds a 10-pt lead on Slow Joe Biden (38%), per the poll.
President Trump is favored on the economy, and that’s the Top issue people are using to decide their vote.
President Trump improved his image among Whites Americans by about 20 pts in the last 4 yrs, that’s very important because Whites are more than 70% of the electorate.
Making and Keeping America Great!
Have a healthy week, Keep the Faith!
