While the MSM would have you believe Trump’s approval rating is irredeemably bad across all political demographics, a recent poll by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal shows it remains strong in the counties he won.
Overall, Trump’s approval hovers around 40 percent, but in the counties he won, it routinely exceeds 50. That number includes Democrats, Republicans, and Independents.
The poll draws on data sampled from 439 counties in 16 states where Trump enjoyed unexpected victories. In these states, Trump either flipped the electoral map by stealing one back from Obama, or he did drastically better than Mitt Romney’s 2012 numbers. These states include Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
In these counties, the poll found voters on average 29 percent strongly approve, 46 percent disapprove and 35 percent disapprove strongly of Trump.
The poll was conducted July 8-12 with a sample size of 600.
