Trump’s handling of coronavirus, economy to sway Pennsylvania voters most, pollster says

President Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has not appeared to change registered voters’ overall perception of him much in Pennsylvania, a new poll shows.

A Franklin & Marshall College Poll released Thursday said 29% of registered voters think the Trump administration is doing an excellent or very good job handling the pandemic, while 57% rated the administration’s performance as below average or failing.

Trump’s approval ratings, however, have changed little since January before the first covid-19 case was diagnosed in Pennsylvania.

The poll showed 42% of registered voters had a strongly or somewhat favorable opinion of the president when asked between July 20-26, up 1 percentage point from January.

It also showed 55% of voters had a strongly or somewhat unfavorable opinion of him in the July polling, also up 1 percentage point from January.

While the favorability numbers remain basically unchanged despite registered voters’ overall perception of how the administration has handled the pandemic, Franklin & Marshall professor and poll director G. Terry Madonna said, “It’s kept him from growing his support.”
