RELATED: New Poll Shows Trump Has Better Approval Than Obama Did at This Point in Presidency

‘The president’s approval is rock-solid’

“Of note is the strongly approve category went up three percentage points from an already lofty (December) number and his highest overall approval ratings ever,” said Pro Farmer policy analyst Jim Wiesemeyer. “That says the president’s approval is rock-solid.”

“With the recent upbeat news on USMCA and the Phase 1 accord with China, the ratings will likely remain firm ahead,” Wiesemeyer added.

Farmers who said they “strongly approve” Trump went up to 64 percent in January, which was a jump from 61 percent in December 2019. A mere 19 percent at the time said they “somewhat approve” of President Trump’s performance, while those who “somewhat disapproved” only registered at three percent.

“Trump needs the rural vote to keep the same states he won in 2016 in his win column come November,” Wiesemeyer said. “In fact, contacts say he is focusing on winning Minnesota this time as a backstop should he lose a state he won in 2016. That means agriculture will continue to be a key topic in the president’s re-election campaign.”

‘That’s why a record 83% of farmers support the President!’

The Director of Communications for Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign tweeted on Monday, “Farmers are long-term planners and they know that (Donald Trump’s) policies are working for agriculture and the entire American economy.

They also know that President Trump fights for them.

That’s why a record 83% of farmers support the President!”
