Polls: Majority in 3 key states 'embarrassed' by Trump

20 Août 2017

The polls released Sunday show that almost two-thirds of registered voters in Pennsylvania (63%), Wisconsin and MI (both 64%) said they are embarrassed by Trump's conduct as President, while only about a quarter of registered voters in those states said they are "proud" of it.

A suite of new NBC News/Marist polls has found that majorities in three key states that helped tip the election for President Donald Trump now say they feel "embarrassed" by his conduct in office.

In addition, Democrats enjoy double-digit leads in MI and Pennsylvania on the question of which party voters prefer to control Congress after the 2018 midterms, and they hold an 8-point advantage in Wisconsin. That was most true in MI, where 48 percent of voters favored Democratic control, compared to 35 percent who favored the GOP remaining in power.

And in Wisconsin, 34 percent of voters approve of Trump (17 percent strongly), compared with 56 percent who disapprove (42 percent strongly).

Of the three states polled, MI has the highest percentage of voters who view Trump unfavorably, at 56%, with just 34% of voters holding a favorable view of the president.

These three NBC/Marist polls were conducted August 13-17 - after the Aug. 12 unrest and violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and in the midst of Trump's multiple responses to the events.

Seventeen-year-old Moussa Oukabir, initially reported to be the driver of the van, was among the five killed. Relatives started the fundraising effort to assist his family with living and educational expenses.

While former President Barack Obama won Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania in 2008 and 2012, Trump was able to flip the states during the 2016 election, helping put him over the electoral college threshold needed to win the presidency.

In Pennsylvania, 35 percent give the president's job a thumbs up (17 percent strongly), versus 54 percent who disapprove (41 percent strongly).

Trump's stunning victories in all three states, which Obama carried in 2008 and 2012, helped vault him to an electoral win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton past year.

Yet Trump gets higher marks on the economy in all three states. Around 800 registered voters were polled with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

Perhaps even more significant is that Democrats enjoy clear advantages when voters are asked who they want to control Congress after the 2018 midterm elections. In Pennsylvania, 47 percent want Democrats to control Congress, compared to 37 percent who favor Republicans while in Wiscosin the Democratic advantage is 46 percent-38 percent.
