Support for President Trump increased among Republicans after he lashed out on Twitter at the weekend in an attack on 4 freshmen Democratic congresswomen known a ‘the squad‘, a Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll shows.
The national survey, conducted Monday and Tuesday after President Trump told the lawmakers they should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” showed his net approval among members of his Republican Party rose by 5 percentage points to 72%, compared with a similar poll that ran last week.
President Trump, who is seeking re-election next year, has lost support, with Democrats and some Independents since the Sunday Tweetstorm against this ‘squad’ of ultra-progressive Marxist congresswomen.
To Republicans, President Trump is saying: Hey, ladies if you do not like America, you can leave. That is not controversial. If you support President Trump, then you interpret his comments that way.
By criticizing ultra-progressive members of the House, President Trump is doing exactly what Republicans want him to do, taking on groups that they oppose.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online in English and gathered responses from 1,113 adults, including 478 Democrats and 406 Republicans in the United States. It has a credibility interval, a measure of precision, of 3 percentage points for the entire group and 5 points for Democrats or Republicans.
Making and Keeping America Great!
