Survey: Most Hoosiers approve of Trump
BRIAN FRANCISCO | The Journal Gazette
Most adults in Indiana approve of President Donald Trump, according to the Old National Bank/Ball State University 2019 Hoosier Survey.
Ball State said Monday that 52% of Hoosiers approve of the job Trump is doing and 40% disapprove. The results are from a telephone survey of 600 adults taken from Oct. 8 through 28; the margin of error is 5.2 percentage points.
"These survey results show that, despite the recent impeachment inquiry, the President’s approval among Hoosiers continues to hold steady," Chad Kinsella, a political science professor and survey analyst at Ball State's Bowen Center for Public Affairs, said in a news release. "The survey indicates that Trump’s approval is essentially unchanged from last year’s Hoosier Survey."
The Bowen Center conducts the yearly survey. Kinsella said Trump's approval is 86% among Republicans, 46% among independents and 11% among Democrats.
Ball State said results of the entire Hoosier Survey will be released Nov. 12.
The 12-point gap between approval and disapproval among all adults surveyed is much larger than in Morning Consult's monthly polling of registered voters in Indiana. Since Jan. 1, the Morning Consult margin has ranged from 1 point to 5 points, with approval of Trump ranging from 49% to 51% and disapproval of him ranging from 46% to 48%.
