Poll: Trump Improves With Black, Hispanic Voters; More Voters Trust Trump to Handle Coronavirus Than Joey Fingers

Hope and change.

The McLaughlin poll is the latest of several that show the public believes Trump is handling the crisis well. The Washington Post today found that voters, 47%-43%, trust Trump more than 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to “handle” the crisis.

The survey, which appeared in Newsmax, found that voters overall approve of the president’s virus job. Not only do 53% support it, but so do 44% of Hispanics, 34% of African Americans, and 55% in battleground states.

And that has apparently spread to his overall job approval rating, now at 49% who approve to 50% who disapprove.

McLaughlin noted that the president’s job approval rating has popped to 51% in 2020 battleground states and that his approval rating among blacks has surged from 8% to 23%.

The new Washington Post/ABCNews poll has Biden ahead of Trump, by a mere two points, 49 to 47.

Given the bias in poll sampling as well as the tendency of Trump supporters to refuse to say they support Trump, I'd say that, in reality, Trump is ahead outside the margin of error.

More on the Washington Post/ABCNew Poll: Via Hot Air.

Trump has moved from what was a seven-point deficit in February to a near tie with Biden today. Among registered voters, Biden is favored by 49 percent and Trump by 47 percent. When the poll measures preferences among all adults, Biden stands at 50 percent and Trump at 44 percent.

Trump is more trusted to handle the economy, while Biden is more trusted to deal with health care. When voters are asked whom they trust more to confront the coronavirus outbreak, the difference between the two is statistically insignificant.

Interestingly, Trump’s overall job approval rating has also jumped significantly over the past month. In the February poll, Trump got a 46/52 rating; today, it’s 48/46, a change of eight points in the gap. This is the highest approval rating Trump has in the entire WaPo/ABC series, blowing away the previous best of 44/51 from January, a bounce from the collapse of impeachment.

Trump beats Biden on enthusiasm, with 86% of Trump voters saying they're enthusiastic vs. only 74% for Joey Fingers.

As far being very enthusiastic, 55% of Trump voters say they are, while only 28% of Biden voters say they are.
