Voter’s remorse? What’s that? The vast majority of people who voted for President Donald Trump would gladly do so again in a heartbeat, with 96 percent of those polled indicating that their support hasn’t wavered, a new survey has revealed.
According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Sunday, only 2 percent of Trump voters expressed regret over their decision; in fact, a do-over of the 2016 general election between Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton might actually result in Trump winning both the Electoral College and the popular vote.
This is because only 85 percent of Hillary Clinton voters claimed that they would vote for her again, which means that in a hypothetical rematch, Trump would likely emerge victorious by a whopping three percentage points. The voters who changed their minds indicated that they would instead go for a third-party candidate.
Respondents also indicated support for Trump’s approach to foreign policy, lauding his tough stance on North Korea and his decision to carry out an airstrike in Syria in response to the chemical weapons attack blamed on Bashar al-Assad.
A majority of voters claimed that Trump and the Republican party were out of touch with their concerns – 58 and 62 percent respectively, but 67 percent of voters said the same about the Democrats, suggesting that the party has still failed to recover the ground it lost after getting blown out in the 2016 elections.
Later this week, Trump will conclude his first 100 days, a period of time that has been marked by an unusual amount of opposition from both voters and the mainstream media for a newly elected president. He is expected to spend much of the week tackling looming budget and tax reform issues.
