You know that whole Crooked Media narrative that Trump’s approval ratings are in the toilet and all his voters regret their decision?
That’s according to a new poll that finds “virtually no regret” among Trump voters. The actual number is less than 4% of voters who would change their vote. And of those, less than 1% would change it to Hillary Clinton!
Looks like President Trump is doing just fine.
Here’s the story, from The Daily Wire:
While Donald Trump’s approval numbers have been tracking well behind other presidents at this stage of his presidency, a recent poll found that there is “virtually no regret” among Trump voters for their decision in the 2016 election.
A Mood of the Nation poll from Penn State’s McCourtney Institute of Democracy released just after two months of Trump being in office found that less than 4 percent of Trump voters regretted their vote. Not only was there almost zero defections among the Trump base, Penn State’s Michael Berkaman and Eric Plutzer found that most of his voters remained “not only intact but enthusiastic and energized.”
The survey asked 339 Trump voters if they would have done something different in November after having seen President Trump in action. Only 12 said they would, a total that amounts to just 3.5%. Of those 12, only 3 (less than 1%) said they would have voted for Hillary Clinton.
“For Trump’s supporters, any news reports that his first weeks as president have been rocky, unpresidential or worse have hardly mattered. There is virtually no regret,” Berkman and Plutzer wrote.
An overwhelming majority of the generally satisfied Trump voters also didn’t feel that he needed to change his behavior to be more “presidential.”
“Of the 327 Trump voters who would vote for him again, only 42 (or 13 percent) asked him to start behaving more presidential,” explained Berman and Plutzer. “Typical was a 51-year-old woman from Virginia who said she would tell the president, ‘Continue with your agenda but stop tweeting.'”
One of the respondents who regretted voting for Trump, echoed the sentiment, saying, “Trump cannot get out of his own way. He won’t stop running his mouth and has no humility.”
