Young people in ‘Trump Country’ express highest levels of presidential job approval, poll finds | Washington Examiner

A survey of registered voters in Trump Country released this week found approval of the president is highest among young people. The poll, conducted by Echelon Insights, surveyed 1,000 registered voters in counties that flipped from Obama to Trump and counties where Trump’s margin of victory was more than 20 points higher than Romney’s in 2012. Among respondents aged 18-29, nearly 57 percent expressed approval of the way Donald Trump is handling his job as President, making them the age cohort that registered the highest level of approval. That number includes respondents who approved of Trump’s job performance both strongly and somewhat. A full 40 percent of young people surveyed strongly approved of the way Trump is handling the job. The youngest voters in the survey also disapproved of the president at the lowest level — only 35.5 percent either strongly or somewhat disapproved of the way he’s handing the job.
