This line stands out to me from the most recent Quinnipiac Poll 5.21.19
President Trump begins his reelection campaign in a deep hole as 54 percent of American voters say they “definitely” will not vote for him,
But American voters give President Donald Trump a negative 38 - 57 percent approval rating, compared to a negative 41 - 55 percent approval in a May 2 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University National Poll.
American voters give Trump mixed grades for his handling of the economy as 48 percent approve and 45 percent disapprove. He gets negative grades for handling other issues:
- 37 - 58 percent for handling foreign policy;
- 39 - 53 percent for handling trade;
- 40 - 50 percent for handling the nation’s policy toward China;
- 37 - 47 percent for handling the nation’s policy toward Iran.
Voters say 48 - 40 percent the president’s trade policies are bad for the U.S. economy, and say 44 - 36 percent that these policies are bad for their personal financial situation.
“The nation’s economy is pretty darn good and President Donald Trump’s approval numbers are pretty darn awful,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. "So what to make of the good news, bad news mashup and how to correct it?
“For the moment, the disparity leaves the president on shaky re-election ground.”
President Trump begins his reelection campaign in a deep hole as 54 percent of American voters say they “definitely” will not vote for him, compared to 52 percent in an April 30 Quinnipiac University National Poll. Today, 31 percent say they “definitely” will vote for Trump and 12 percent say they will “consider voting for him.”
Definitely voting for Trump are 76 percent of Republicans, 3 percent of Democrats and 21 percent of independent voters.
Definitely not voting for Trump are 10 percent of Republicans, 94 percent of Democrats and 54 percent of independent voters.
American voters give Trump a negative 38 - 57 percent favorability rating.
