Public approval of Donald Trump’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic continues its death glide, according to a survey by The Associated Press-NORC Poll. It is so sad that it takes the deaths of thousands of Americans each week to convince Trump’s devoted followers to abandon him.
The poll finds that currently of 32% of voters support the President’s attempts at dealing with the pandemic compared to 37% in late May and 44% in March. Trump’s overall approval has dipped to 38% compared to 41% in May and 43% in March. Some 48% of voters approve of Trump’s handling of the economy, down from 56% in March.
Nonetheless, as long as the virus rages, causing death and suffering, it seems likely that Trump’s support will continue to slowly wither as he has no plan except to minimize and pass blame to others, a political strategy that is not working.
CNN Poll: Biden Leads in MI (+12%), AZ (+4%) and FL (+5%)
CNN reports in its just released poll that Joe Biden is leading in Michigan 52% to 40%. The former Vice President leads in Florida 51% to 46%, and he leads in Arizona 49% to 45%.
But on coronavirus and racial inequality, two issues which have dominated the national conversation in the last few months, Trump's disapproval stands around 60% across all three states. On the coronavirus outbreak, 60% disapprove in Arizona, 59% in Michigan and 57% in Florida. On racial inequality in the US, 59% disapprove in both Arizona and Michigan, 57% do so in Florida.
