F&M Poll: Trump’s Numbers Continue to Show Polarized Public

TrumpIn the latest Franklin & Marshall Poll, President Donald Trump’s approval ratings increased since February, and his opposition numbers have dipped slightly.  

Trump’s 37% job approval (13% excellent plus 24% good) is up five points from his poll numbers in February.  Trump’s strong negatives have taken a slight dip since February, dropping four points.  Those who say Trump is doing a poor job dropped from 54% to 49%, while those who say he is doing a fair job grew from 13% to 14%.  

Trump’s strongest support comes from the western parts of the state, with 60% of voters in both the northwest and southwest saying Trump is doing an excellent or good job as President.  The strongest opposition continues to come from Pennsylvania’s urban centers, with 85% of Philadelphians saying Trump is doing a fair/poor job.  

A plurality of respondents, 47%, believe Trump is doing an excellent or very good job at dealing with terrorism.  A majority of voters gave Trump a failing grade on environmental issues, 51% said he is failing at protecting the environment.  

Franklin & Marshall surveyed 639 registered voters from May 1st- 7th.  Respondents were contacted by letter and given the choice between phone interview or online interview. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.9 percent.

F&M calculates job approval differently than most pollsters that tends to result in lower ratings – regardless of party. Respondents choose between a rating of excellent, good, fair, and poor. The approval numbers are pulled from the excellent and good categories.

  2. If the election were held again today, Trump would carry the state again, and with a higher margin than last November. His support base has not eroded as Democrats have hoped.

  3. So with a plus/minus of 4.9%, the poll numbers could be exactly where they were in February.

  4. I believe Quinnipiac’s poll from earlier this week. Trump is going in the wrong direction. His supporters need to quietly understand that they have been conned. Never in the history of presidential polling has a president looked (or acted) this badly. Of course, Trump is responsible for all of it. The media wouldn’t cover his gaffes if he kept his mouth shut and actually used two brain cells simultaneously to figure out that show business is different than governing.

  5. HAHA Terry Madonna’s polls are as accurate as a old blind lady throwing darts… actually that might be an insult to the blind lady.

  6. The only way the citizenry will stop being polarized is when the Trumpistas give up their delusions and join the 60%+ of us who oppose the crony oligarchy of Trump.
