Just weeks ahead of the Republican National Convention where delegates are expected to nominate their presumptive presidential candidate Donald Trump, some voters appear to have buyer’s remorse.
An estimated 52 percent of Republican voters would have preferred someone else as their party’s standard-bearer, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Monday, writes Politico. The results come ahead of the party’s convention in Cleveland, Ohio, which begins on July 18.
Less than half — 45 percent — of Republican voters say they are satisfied with Donald Trump as their party’s presidential nominee, according to the latest results from an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Monday.
Among conservative Republicans, 53 percent said they would have preferred a candidate other than Trump, while 45 percent of that group said they are fine with the Manhattan real-estate mogul as the nominee. Moderate Republicans split at 49 percent each, while 58 percent of Republicans who have a high-school education or less said they are satisfied. Sixty percent with a college degree said they would like someone else.
On the issues, a majority of voters said Trump would be better than Clinton at “changing business as usual in Washington” (53 percent to 23 percent). Trump also led on economic issues (47 percent to 37 percent), “standing up for America” (45 percent to 37 percent), terrorism and homeland security (44 percent to 39 percent), guns (43 percent to 35 percent), “being effective at getting things done” (42 percent to 39 percent) and “being honest and straightforward” (41 percent to 25 percent).
