62 Percent of Trump Fans Support Him Regardless

By Victor Westerkamp

Sixty-two percent of Trump supporters pledge to keep support him regardless of what will happen, a recent poll found. But 70 percent of Trump-haters will also keep hating him regardless, according to the poll.

Few past presidents have drawn so much controversy as Donald Trump.

The overall job approval from all 942 people questioned in a survey commissioned by the Monmouth University Polling Institute and published on Nov. 5, was 43 percent in favor, with 51 percent not in favor.

These figures are slightly more promising for the president since last September’s polling, when 41 percent approved of the job he was doing, and 53 percent disapproved.

Out of the 401 steadfast Trump followers questioned in the poll, 62 percent declared that they would stick with him, regardless of “anything that Trump could do, or fail to do, in his term as president that would make [them] disapprove of the job he is doing.”

This number went up by 12 percent compared to January 2018 when the same question was raised among a similar group of Trump supporters, Axios noted.

On the other hand, 70 percent of the 467 Trump haters that were interviewed will never approve of him no matter what he says or does.

On the impeachment investigation, 44 percent approved, while 51 percent disapproved of the idea that Congress should push for impeachment and that the president should be removed from office.

The poll was executed between Oct. 30 and Nov. 3 during the ongoing impeachment inquiry, and it remains to be seen how the investigation could affect voters’ preferences, if at all.
