Skip to comments.Trump wins 60 percent approval in rural areas of key states

President Trumps job approval rating in rural areas of the Rust Belt and Great Plains states is at 60 percent, markedly higher than his job approval rating nationally, according to a new poll commissioned by Democrats.
A Change Research survey sponsored by The American Federation of Teachers and One Country, a group with close ties to former Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), found that 60 percent of voters from non-metro counties in Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and West Virginia approve of the job Trump is doing.
All of those states voted for Trump in 2016 with the exception of Colorado and Minnesota. Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin went red in the 2016 election for the first time in decades and Democrats believe that rebuilding that blue wall represents their likeliest path back to the White House.
While Trumps job approval rating among rural Democrats is only at 7 percent, he gets 97 percent support from rural Republicans and 51 percent support from rural independents.

Rural people are just fundamentally better people.
There is no other conclusion.
Should be higher to combat big cities, however when it comes to the election it will be because the alternative is straight out Marxism.
The big-city Democratic machine will have a problem this time around because the male-black vote will go to around 35-to-40 percent for Trump. Even in Detroit, you can find a pro-Trump situation going on.
I tend to agree and l think it probably is higher.
BINGO! Hispanics too. He already got 38% of the Latino vote last time.
60 percent may not be enough to offset the liberal cities and suburbs.
If Trump can get even 15 to 18% of the black vote next year he will win in a landslide. Unless the black vote is highly motivated to turn out for the democrat they will tank worse than in 2016.
My wife and I left Seattle for rural KY 8 years ago. She’s back there visiting right now and, after being gone as long as we have, she repeated to me just this morning on the phone something we heard a long time ago about Seattle:
People where we live are friendly. People in Seattle are “polite”. It’s all saccharine.
Needless to say, this is a generalization. :)
He’s at 60% on the LOW END...
Once you get out of the urban centers where you can’t admit to supporting Trump without dealing with the left wing idiots, you see what the reality is...
But they poll and focus and live in the urban centers so they refuse to see, or just don’t realize the reality.
I’d say they are much more closely connected to traditional American values and principles, more independent, and much less influenced by elites, celebrities, and groupthink.
Hard to believe it’s only 60% in WV.
The Democratic machine needs both black and Latino votes to stay in their ‘game’. If they fail (especially if Trump were to get 40-percent of both groups), then the whole strategy of minority ‘gaming’ will require a rethink for 2024. You’d have to run a black-Latino candidate as President...to get the votes back.
Trump might get a high voter turnout among whites than he did in 2016.
In 2016, I think some whites thought.... he has no chance. I’m not even going to bother.

We recruit fresh participants online for each and every poll, meaning we aren’t affected by the dwindling response rates of landline polling. We use proprietary, patent-pending approaches to recruit participants, and we don’t use online panels of habitual survey takers
I was in a Scottsdale, AZ coffe house this morning, sitting near a couple of 60-something year olds. Scottsdale is upscale, and a bit of a retirement haven, so there are many transplants.
The fellow doing most of the talking said he liked that Senator from Minnesota (Klobuchar), but also the Republican woman from Iowa (Ernst, I’m sure). He puts no stock in party platforms. Likes women candidates. Is sick of Sanders. But cannot stand Elizabeth Warren.
From then he went on to talk about hearing aids and his ex-girlfriend.
Anyway, it was a rare opportunity to hear a male who is mature, and thinks about the election, and is guided almost completely by emotions and intuition.
Obviously, he doesn’t want to vote Trump, but I also see a voter like him not getting too excited about Biden or Warren.
There must be a whole industry trying to get his vote. I am glad I am not part of it.
I imagine a lot of people were a little nervous about handing over the red button to someone with zero government experience. Now that it’s pretty clear that he’s not going to get us all blown up, I can imagine another group showing up for him.
I once worked in a store where we sold red ballcaps that said the following:
WARNING: Farming is REAL WORK!
Hence I suspect you’ll find very few Democrats there
(though sheesh, the Republicans sure like their government subsidies).
But is that enough to overcome liberal hives aka cities
The cities have an advantage because they have most of the illegals and gimme dats. Community organizers help them to vote multiple times during election days.
