But the new Northern Poll shows that President Trump’s support in the state has slipped.
The recent Northern Poll shows that 50 percent of Ohioans are dissatisfied with how President Trump is handling his job as president, compared to 35 percent being satisfied and 15 percent who are neutral.
Seventy-one percent of Republicans polled are satisfied with Trump’s performance, but only 5 percent of Democrats and 23 percent of independent voters feel favorably toward him, according to the poll.
In terms of issues, the three most important concerns to voters are health care, immigration and the economy.
“While many are putting the state in Trump’s win column for 2020, it seems that is premature. His approval/disapproval ratings are especially stunning, given the state’s relatively healthy economy, which is usually a president’s best ally in terms of popularity. Unless perceptions of Trump improve dramatically, Ohio will once again be a purple state in 2020,” said Robert Alexander, professor of political science who oversaw the poll.
The poll of more than 1,500 adults was conducted from April 5-10 and had a margin of error of 2.7 percent.
