Skip to comments.Zogby: ‘Poor performances’ of Democrats boost Trump’s approval to 51%, up with blacks and Hispanics

President Trumps approval rating has edged up, driven by long-term confidence in his economy and boosted by the lackluster performances of the two dozen Democrats trying to beat him in the 2020 election, according to the latest Zogby Analytics poll.
The contrarian survey, provided exclusively to Secrets, pushes back on some other recent polls showing a surge in Trumps disapproval rating.
Namely, it found that recent issues portrayed as trouble for Trump havent hurt him and that he is growing in support among Africans Americans, Hispanics, independents, and younger voters.
President Trump's job approval has continued to rise the last few months, said pollster Jonathan Zogby in his analysis of likely voters.
It's true Trump is riding high on positive economic news, he said.
But, he added, It's also very plausible he is benefiting from poor performances by the Democratic presidential candidates who have continued to move very far to the left with their policies. The Democrats have floated nationalizing healthcare, strict gun control, The Green New Deal, and raising taxes, all which are very unpopular in polling on a national level and in key battleground states.
Overall, Trumps approval rating is 51%, and disapproval 47%. Among those who approve, 27% said strongly and 24% somewhat approve. The largest group, however, was those who strongly disapprove, at a sky high 37%. Another 10% said that they somewhat disapprove.
As the country continues to divide over the 2020 race and Trumps policies and agenda, the president is benefiting from a very strong GOP approval rating, said Zogby, a sign that he has not lost his base. And hes gaining among independents.
An overwhelming number of Republicans approved (86% approve/13% disapprove), while independents were more balanced in their impression of Trump's job performance (45% approve/50% disapprove). The president's numbers continue to improve with independents, which a few months ago his approval rating was in the 30's, said the analysis.
And he is picking up support among two groups that the media has pitted against the president: blacks and Hispanics. Heres what Zogby wrote in his analysis:
Race also played a factor in Trump's job approval rating. Hispanics, this time around, were much more likely to approve of his job performance (49% approve/51% disapprove), while the president also saw his numbers jump with African Americans. This was his second straight poll with over a quarter support from African Americans (28% approve/70% disapprove). If Trump wins half of Hispanics and a quarter of African Americans in 2020, Democrats will be in trouble!
Zogby said that older millennial voters approve of Trump, and a growing number of younger voters too.
However, he continues to have trouble with suburban women, a pocket the media has described as his albatross. The one important group Trump continues to see his support wane was with suburban women (38% approve/57% disapprove). This is an important group for him if he is going to win again in the blue wall states he won in 2016. The blow of losing support from suburban women was blunted with his gains with urban women--46% approve/53% disapprove and urban men (56% approve/43% disapprove), said Zogby.
His bottom line in his analysis:
Trump's job approval rating is tied for the highest we have on record. His numbers are being driven by record low unemployment and an inflated stock market, but a potential recession looms. Besides a good economy, Trump's good approval rating is being driven by a surge in popularity among voters living in the South and Central regions, independents, millennials, suburban men, urban men, and older voters. Trump's approval rating has improved with minorities: 28% of African Americans and 49% of Hispanics at least somewhat approve of the president. Both are very good numbers, historically, for Trump. Trump's support has spiked among consumers, mainly NASCAR fans and weekly Walmart and Amazon shoppers. A solid majority of each group gives the president a positive job rating. Trump has recently seen a spike in support among large and small city voters more than half of each group approves of the president. Trump is also polling well among urban women, but has seen his support from suburban women take a beating. Religious voters are key to Trump winning in 2020. They make up a big part of the electorate and have a big presence in battleground states. Right now the president is polling very well with Catholics, Protestants, and evangelicals.
Notice how good numbers for our POTUS are couched with contrarian issues and hazy notions/facts? These people are determined to say that DJT is unpopular with a vast majority of people. The evidence shows otherwise.
I wonder how the leftists will respond after President DJT winds with a much more comfortable margin that they are willing to accept?
Or, Occam’s Razor.
Blacks and Hispanics just enjoy having a JOB.
They will get violent...............
My thought too.
Or they notice how different the 8 years of Obama vs the two years of Trump are for their own personal situation......................
These past few weeks since the implosion of the Mueller fiasco have seen a large shift in strategy to push “Trump is a White Supremacist” as the #1 vector of attack. It seems pretty clear that strategy is failing hard.
The Dems are now praying for a recession, as that might be the only path to the White House, country be damned.
THERE ARE FORCES AT WORK TO INTENTIONALLY CREATE A RECESSION FOR THAT VERY REASON.
YESTERDAY WAS A TRIAL RUN.........
...INTENTIONALLY CREATE A RECESSION...
Thats an incredible poll
No Kali sadly will not turn GOPe
Its impossible pretty much
They may like Trump but he cant tirn enough
But nationally if he picks up 7-10% of both Latino and black vote hed be assured a big margin of electoral and popular vote
the Trump haters at the Washington Examiner must have HATED to report this news.
“YESTERDAY WAS A TRIAL RUN.........”
That’s what Rush was saying today. I was wondering about that yesterday, but thought, “Naaahh. Couldn’t be.” Maybe it could be. They are going to do SOMETHING; we know that.
Trump’s approval ratings should exist independent of the clown show on the other side of the aisle. The dog ate Zogby’s homework.
Trump should sign an executive order mandating that the Hallmark Channel run Christmas movies round the clock on Election Day.
If Trump wins half of Hispanics and a quarter of African Americans in 2020, Democrats will be in trouble!
No, it would mean that Trump would win in an absolute blowout.
Notice how the article failed to mention that every Democrat candidate supports free health care for illegal aliens.
Note that the increase among African-American support occurred AFTER the Baltimore comments.
Thats an incredible poll
If this is even somewhat accurate, it has to be scaring the dems to death.
If it is true, I would say it is more than just jobs and economy. Those are things that people get and start to take for granted fairly quickly, I hate to say.
I contend that the scare tactics that minority groups heard for 3 years (all during the campaign and then for years after) never really flushed out. It’s getting to the point where some of the people are asking themselves, ‘Where’s the beef?’ It’s always endless rhetoric, but never any action. If Trump is such a bad guy, why is everything the same as it always has been, or maybe even a little bit better?
