As reported here time and time again, President Trump is far more popular with mainstream Americans of all backgrounds than the anti-Trump media would have you believe. This week a new poll confirms that fact, showing the president gaining popularity among minority and female voters across the country. It should also be noted that polling for Trump has always been undervalued, meaning his true support among Americans is most likely even higher. (See: 2016 Election results)
Suburban women, after fleeing Republicans in the 2018 midterm congressional elections, are coming back to President Trump.
The reason: many want his border wall.
A remarkable new Zogby Analytics poll found that suburban women, more than likely voters, support the wall and Trump’s emergency declaration that will allow him to spend more to build it than Congress has OK’d.
The numbers: 45 percent of suburban women want the president to find other sources of money to build the border wall, versus 40 percent who don’t. And 50 percent back his emergency declaration.
His latest survey found that Trump’s approval has continued to edge higher, and he’s picking up support from other groups that had soured on the president, including Hispanics, African Americans and independents.
“The president’s numbers steadily gained among Independents (39 percent approve/55 percent disapprove) and voters without college degrees (45 percent approve/51 percent disapprove), two groups that helped him win the 2016 presidential election. Another interesting area where President Trump gained ground was with Hispanics (40 percent approve/57 percent disapprove) and African Americans (24 percent approve/70 percent disapprove). Both groups’ job approval rating of Trump increased the most in months,” said Zogby’s polling analysis.
