If you believe Hollywood actors or the mainstream media you would surely think President Trump shot himself in the foot with his controversial tweets about AOC’s “squad.”
However, a YouGov survey has found nearly 90% of Republicans agree with the tweets.
In addition, Swing voters were nearly split 50/50.
Time will tell if Trump’s move to energize the base by forcing Democrats to unite behind their unpopular radical left wing will pay off.
Per Breitbart, a YouGov survey this week finds that about 88 percent, or nearly nine-in-ten, Republican voters said they thought the tweets were “great,” “good,” or “okay.” Less than 15 percent of Republican voters said the tweets were “bad” or “terrible.”
Similarly, 90 percent of Trump supporters said they liked the president’s tweets, while less than ten percent called them “bad” or “terrible.”
Among Hispanic American voters, a majority of 52 percent said they liked Trump’s tweets and about 53 percent of white Americans said the same.
Swing voters are largely split about their feelings towards Trump’s “go back” comments. While 48 percent of swing voters said they think the tweets are “great,” “good,” or “okay,” another 51 percent said they found the tweets to be “bad” or “terrible.”
This week, Trump continued to say that new arrivals and immigrants who are “not happy here” should “leave” rather than attack the U.S. and American citizens.
“As far as I’m concerned, if you hate our country, if you’re not happy here, you can leave,” Trump said this week at the White House. “… If you’re complaining all the time, very simply you can leave, you can leave right now. Come back if you want, don’t come back, that’s okay too. But if you’re not happy, you can leave.”
