Some good news today out of Georgia courtesy of PPP’s latest poll conducted on behalf of MoveOn.org:
A new Public Policy Polling survey finds that President Trump’s handling of the US Postal Service is unpopular among Georgia voters, and even less popular than his overall job performance. Just 40% of voters approve of his handling of the USPS, while a plurality (46%) disapprove. This leaves him 6 points underwater, compared to his 3 points overall, where just 46% of Georgians approve of his job performance and 49% disapprove.
A plurality (48%) also believe that President Trump is intentionally damaging the US Postal Service in order to help him win reelection in November, and there is widespread support for the USPS and vote-by-mail initiatives.
- 65% think the USPS is critical to the nation during the coronavirus pandemic, while just 23% disagree.
- 54% think Louis DeJoy’s investments in USPS competitors are a conflict of interest, while just 28% disagree.
- 53% oppose a potential executive action from Trump that would curb vote-by-mail and damage the USPS financially, while just 37% support it.
- 51% support Congress taking action to fully fund the post office to maintain the level of service prior to the changes recently made by the Postmaster General, while just 32% oppose it.
The survey also finds Senator David Perdue vulnerable to his Democratic opponent Jon Ossoff in the race, with Perdue and Ossoff tied 44-44.
Public Policy Polling surveyed 530 Georgia voters from August 13-14, 2020. The margin of error is +/- 4.3%. The survey was conducted by text message.
