Polls: Trump Keeps and Expands His Base

President Trump, Facebook

Despite the marches and protests of Brownshirt fascists everywhere, and despite the unprecedented negative fake news coverage of his first 100 days, Trump’s supporters are unfazed. Just a week ago Pew showed that he had lost almost none of his base.

Now, a new People’s Pundit Daily poll out of Florida shows that Trump remains very strong in the Sunshine State. Richard Baris, the president of PPD, says “Since the election, the President’s support among whites has held roughly even in the nation’s largest battleground state, while his support among non-whites, particularly Hispanics, has risen slightly on almost ever measure.” In private, however, Baris is even more emphatic: based on vote share per county, there would be “zero” chance Trump would lose Florida today. He reemphasized, “zero.” Trump’s numbers in the swing county Pinellas were positive and Hillsborough just under 50. But the Panhandle? “Ridiculous margins” in favor of Trump, noted Baris.

Always careful to protect his national best election day polling record (one of only two to correctly call Michigan and Pennsylvania), Baris did not divulge if he had factored in the new positive Republican voter registration changes (+27,000, net) since election day. For those who haven’t followed my columns, I should repeat that the change in Pennsylvania was even more stunning—over 100,000 shifted to the Republicans/away from the Democrats. In short, as of early May, Trump is in a distinctly stronger position in two key states than he was just a few short months ago when he won them narrowly.

  1. We can always count on you for thoughtful analysis, Larry. Thank you. I predict Trump will glide to reelection while maintaining Congressional majorities. He thinks strategically in the future and is already campaigning. Ads have been running all week.

  2. You’re just trying to do harm to the Hillary PAC launch.
    Americans however cheer the good news. Leftists, not so much.

  3. After 4 years of winning, Trump will not only cruise to a easy electoral victory but a popular vote victory as well.

    The lefty media/press along with the Hollyweird crybabies have jumped the shark, zero credibility.

  4. He’s determined to allow all Americans see what he’s doing and how it will favor jobs, security and government downsizing. That doesn’t even count the executive orders getting the stinkin government off our backs by nixing Obama’s overwhelming control through regulations. If we had one iota of honest reporting in TV news his approval numbers would be out the roof.

  5. Well, he’s lost me, but I’m holding out hope he can earn me back.

    Not enough executive action re: prosecuting the snakes in the swamp. I want a scorched-earth fracas, not a set-up for a 2024 Princess Ivanka ticket.
