Associated Press and NORC Research Center published a poll 100 days before the U.S. presidential election on Sunday, July 26, showing a decline in the level of approval of Donald Trump as president. Support for Trump’s actions during the COVID-19 pandemic was announced by 32% of respondents, the lowest rate in months.
80% of Americans say the country is moving in the wrong direction, more than at any time since Trump took office. The approval rate for the American economy has dropped to 38%. In January, before the pandemic began, 67% of Americans thought things were going well. CNN also reported on Sunday that Trump is behind Biden in Florida, Arizona and Michigan, where he won in 2016.
President Trump indirectly responded to the survey data in his Twitter account. He wrote that his campaign is more enthusiastic than the 2016 election, while his opponent Democrat Joe Biden has nothing. “Fake Suppression Polls & Fake News will not save the Radical Left,” Trump concluded.
