Less than three months before the US election, Gallup’s latest poll released on August 17 local time showed that the overall recognition rate of President Trump’s work performance was 42%. Specifically, only 35% of the respondents approved Trump’s performance in solving the “education” problem. Meanwhile, the poll interviewed 1031 American adults from July 30 to August 12. In addition to the overall measure of Trump’s recognition rate for work performance, Americans interviewed also rated how he handled seven different issues, according to a Gallup poll.
according to the results of the public opinion survey, the different problems in these seven aspects are: economy, crime, foreign affairs, relations with China, ethnic relations, response to the new epidemic situation and education. Among them, the Americans interviewed have the lowest recognition rate for Trump’s performance in solving the “education” problem, with only 35% of respondents agreeing and 62% of respondents saying they do not. In addition, the recognition rates of trump on “coping with the new epidemic situation” and “race relations” were 36% and 37% respectively.
it is worth noting that only 41% of the respondents agreed with Trump’s handling of “foreign affairs” and 56% said they did not. As for Trump’s way of handling “relations with China”, 57% of the people said they did not approve of it.
according to the Gallup website poll, the overall recognition rate of Trump’s work performance has been between 38% and 49% since this year, but the American rating of how he deals with some specific issues fluctuates even more. Among them, Americans’ recognition of the way they deal with economic problems has decreased by 15 percentage points compared with the beginning of this year. In January, 63% of Americans approved of Trump’s approach to “economic” issues, compared with 48% in the latest poll.
according to the survey report, the public’s recognition of Trump’s response to the new epidemic situation has declined even more. In March, novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak in the United States and the implementation of blockade measures in various states, 60% of Americans surveyed recognized his epidemic coping style. In April, however, the figure fell to 50%. According to the latest poll, only 36% of the respondents agree with trump on this issue, which is 24% lower than that in March this year.
in addition, the recognition of Trump’s foreign affairs response from the United States began to decline at the beginning of this year, but the decline was small, from 48% in February to 41% at present.
according to the poll report, less than three months before the election, voters will decide whether trump can be re elected. The latest opinion poll shows that the public’s recognition of him has improved to some extent, but it is still below the 50% level, which is also a key indicator of whether he can be re elected.
