A new Arizona opinion poll shows overwhelming public support for a “plan to make America self-sufficient” by producing more food, energy and medicine at home.
In the statewide public opinion poll, conducted by OH Predictive Insights, 75 percent of respondents said that they would be more likely to support a candidate that had a plan to make the United States more self-sufficient in those three areas.
The question had majority support from all demographics, including gender, age and region groups.
Only six percent of respondents said they would be less likely to vote for a candidate who placed a priority on self-sufficiency in the United States. Two out of three liberals and about 90 percent of conservatives and Republicans said they would be more likely to support such a candidate.
Biden supporters were the least likely to vote for a candidate who had a plan to make America more self-sufficient, with 28 percent saying they would not.
Oddly enough, the Arizona poll also shows that Biden tops President Trump 50 percent to 43 percent in a presidential match-up, despite Trump’s promise to “Make America Great Again” by bringing jobs back to the United States.
The fact that most Arizona voters support Biden suggests that they believe he would be a better “America First” president than Trump. Yet Biden supported NAFTA in 1993, which led to massive offshoring and outsourcing of jobs. And as vice president, he fought for passage of the job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
Trump’s campaign meanwhile claims that the president has been able to bring jobs back to the U.S. through “tough negotiations with China,” withdrawing the U.S. from the TPP, and successfully negotiating a new U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal.
In better news for the president, a new Gallup poll showed 49 percent approval for Trump among voters nationwide.
“At 49%, Trump is a hair away from the generally accepted 50%-51% approval political experts consider a lock to win reelection,” The Washington Examiner reported.
At this stage of their presidencies, Obama was at 47% approval, and Bush was at 46% approval. Also, at this stage of their presidencies and heading into the reelection, Bill Clinton was at 55% approval, George H.W. Bush at 40%, Ronald Reagan at 52%, and Jimmy Carter at 38%.
Yet another poll had good news for the president, Monday.
The latest Economist/YouGov survey showed that only one-third of voters blame Trump for the virus-crushed economy, despite the corporate media’s attempts to pin the blame on him.
