Pres. Donald Trump may be feeling the heat like never before.
A new report from McClatchy DC made a surprising claim this morning. It could be a major sign that Trump is in trouble.
The article is about residents of North Carolina who voted for Trump in 2016. That are now disenchanted with the president and his ceaseless reality show.
But more importantly this points to a bigger problem.
That is a distinct possibility Trump’s handling of recent events may be chipping away at his base. And there are the personal accounts here to prove it.
69-year-old registered independent Jay Copan from suburban Raleigh told, “I just feel so passionately about the fact he does not deserve another four years in office, We’ve done the four years with him, and he’s shown what he can do and what he can’t do. He just does not deserve another four years.”
In addition such a notion runs opposite the president’s narrative.
He has frequently boasted of sky high approval ratings within the Republican Party. Yet apparently that won’t be enough to keep his supporters on board.
Trump’s truculent ways definitely turn people off. Many voters were disappointed in the president’s response to nationwide protests against police brutality.
But instead of extending an olive branch, Trump gave the back of his hand. Unless states were willing to deal on his terms, they were stuck.
Raw Story told:
Trump skeptics who now back Joe Biden come from a variety of demographics and make up about 5 percent of the electorate, but pollsters found the former Democratic vice president leads the GOP incumbent within this group 60 percent to 25 percent.
The economy had been the glue that held together Trump’s coalition, according to one GOP strategist, but even Republicans are growing tired of the constant disruptions.
“Young voters tended to be troubled by his response at the protests, younger swingy voters, While with older voters, it was the pandemic. So it was eating out of both sides of the age gap,” declared Democratic pollster Nick Gourvetich.
Trump seemingly under siege from every angle. With a steep climb up back to the top.
