Grinnell College National Poll: Opposition to President Trump Growing
GRINNELL, Iowa — A new national poll commissioned by Grinnell College shows President Trump’s chances of re-election in two years are dim … and Americans are excited about that.
The poll was conducted by Des Moines-based Selzer & Co. 1,002 people nationwide, 779 who call themselves likely voters, responded to the survey over Labor Day weekend. The poll found President Trump’s approval is slipping and the number of Americans “definitely” opposed to his re-election is growing.
Here are some of the findings in the poll:
If the 2020 Presidential election were held today:
- 36% definitely will vote for Trump
- 43% definitely will vote for someone else
- 17% would consider someone else
Here’s how that same question scored among suburban voters, a group that favored Trump in 2018
- 49% definitely will vote someone else
- 27% definitely will vote for Trump
Are you more hopeful or fearful about state of the nation after upcoming elections?
- 60% more hopeful after 2018
- 59% more hopeful after 2020
“His numbers with women are on the gloomy side,” J. Ann Selzer, who directed the poll, said about the President’s numbers.
