Survey Finds Most Farmers Feel the President is Doing a Good Job

November 6, 2018 10:59 AM

While he is not on the ballot, the President has acknowledged these midterms represent a referendum on his presidency, and a new "Farm Journal Pulse" survey says most farmers and ranchers believe he's doing a good job. 55% of the nearly 1,500 people polled said they have a "favorable" view of President Trump. That's up four points from when the same survey was taken in August, but that strengthening support does not appear to come from recent successes on the trade front. Only 30% said their opinion of President Trump is "more favorable" since the trade wars started. 36% said their opinion is now "less favorable". Overall, confidence in the President may pay off at the polls today, at least in rural areas. 55% said that their sentiment towards Mister Trump will impact their voting decisions "a lot."

  Ouch! I would say that all farmers work long hours, don't have time or interest to keep up with the Donald Show, are kind-hearted and figure that when the sun comes up again he can't be doing THAT bad. (We would all do better to listen to our wives.)

  Zagnut, and Gerade, you are both spot on!!! That sure was nice of those dirty Chinese Communists, to go ahead and approve the patients that JaVonka had applied for, even if there is a "Trade War" going on!!! HaHa!!! And Gerard fear not, Lying Conman Trump, and his family will have to face up to the Russian Mob before it will be over with. Putin's mobsters will want the all the $$$ he owes them. That's not good DEAL for the Lying Conman Trump and his phony family. Russia this a.m has already expressed their disappointment as the Democrats won the majority of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Lying Conman's problem is that the Russian mob makes Al Capone look as if he were up for "Sainthood". So it's all about "Poisoned Partisan Politics, as In my rural voting precinct, there were 80 votes for a Holocaust denying, Nazi sympathizer, that the state, and local Co. Republican parties had previously denounced him. "Poisonous Partisan Politics" at it's best!!!
