The majority of Americans don’t want Don Jr. or Ivanka running for officePosted by Annie May / November 2, 2020
A new poll for the Independent says that 61% of voters do not want Donald Trump Jr. or Ivanka Trump to run for office. Only 16% of Americans think Don Jr. should go into politics at all.
It’s not surprising no one wants the Trumps, as polling reveals that 51% of Americans think Trump has harmed the country’s reputation on the world stage, while 36% think he improved it. The numbers are similar for his “Make America Great Again”––only about a third of Americans think he did so.
According to a recent poll, two-thirds of Americans think that we are in a worse position now than we were in 2015. That explains why Biden is polling so well in traditionally Republican states, like Florida where he is two points ahead of Trump.
In 2016, USA Today urged its readers not to vote for Donald Trump, but it did not overtly endorse Hillary Clinton. This election year, they have broken with the tradition of non-partisanship in place since the paper’s founding in 1982 and endorsed Joe Biden.
So many surprising people and groups are supporting Biden it’s almost hard to keep track. Ex-Republican National Convention chair Michael Steele, who steered the GOP during Biden’s tenure in the Obama White House, has endorsed Joe Biden.
Pennsylvania seniors are withdrawing their support for Trump over his terrible COVID response and endorsing Joe Biden. These seniors are not the only traditionally-Republican Pennsylvanians abandoning Trump. The former Republican governor of Pennsylvania is supporting Joe Biden for President, breaking with his party. Tom Ridge said he has never voted for a Democratic presidential candidate before, but that his long history of rejecting Donald Trump compels him to make this decision. He compared Trump to George W. Bush, who stood on the rubble of Ground Zero with a megaphone, uniting the country. Could Trump do such a thing, Ridge asks? Even if he could, he hasn’t––he has not gone to the CDC to rally the nation against COVID. And more than 125 mayors in Pennsylvania, a key swing state this election, have thrown their support behind Joe Biden.
