If he wants to win a second term?
He NEEDS Ohio…..
Just 39 percent of Ohio adults approve of President Donald Trump’s job performance, with almost three times more Ohioans telling Baldwin Wallace University pollsters that they they “strongly disapprove” of Trump’s handling of the presidency than those who said they “strongly approve.”
The poll of 1,361 Ohio adults taken from March 1-15 ended several days before Trump stirred up an Ohio controversy by blaming local union officials for the recent closure of General Motors’ Lordstown plant. Trump repeated those criticisms in last week’s visit to a Lima tank factory, where he also assailed the late Sen. John McCain’s voting record and complained that he wasn’t thanked for McCain’s funeral.
Even before those outbursts, 35.5 percent of those surveyed said they “strongly disapprove” of Trump. Sixty-seven percent of self-described Democrats provided that answer, as did 33 percent of men and 37 percent of women. Sixty-one percent of those who responded to the survey said they disapproved of Trump to some degree.
Far fewer of those surveyed – slightly over 12 percent – said they “strongly approve” of how Trump has handled the presidency. Thirty-one percent of Republicans who responded to the survey were in that camp, as were 15 percent of men and 10 percent of women. The poll has a 3.4 percent margin of error.
The latest nationwide polls compiled by FiveThirtyEight show Trump with a 42 percent approval rating. Every other president since Harry Truman had a higher approval level at this point in his presidency, the website’s statistics indicate, except for Ronald Reagan, whose approval rating was 41.1 percent…..
