According to a recent Reuters/Ipsos Poll conducted between July 11 and 12, 88 percent of Trump Voters said they would vote for him again if the election was held today.

That’s up from a similar Poll that was conducted in May that indicated that 82 percent would do so again.

Respondent Brian Barnes said, “I think he’s doing all he can even though the Republicans in the House and Senate are creating a lot of problems” by not passing a health care bill.

Elaine Kamarck, an expert in American electoral politics at the Brookings Institution, said when looking ahead to 2020, what matters is not how much Trump’s numbers go up and down, but where they fluctuate.

“If … disenchanted Trump voters are in California, it doesn’t matter,” Kamarck said. “If they live in Wisconsin or Michigan or Pennsylvania, it matters.”

Many Trump supporters believe they picked the best alternative, regardless of what comes out about Russia and the Trump campaign.

“I don’t know what all was done,” said Jack Artley, 43, of Pennsylvania. “No matter how it comes out, even if it comes out that there was some shady business going on there, I’d rather Trump in there than Clinton. So, whether he had to cheat or not to get in, I’m OK with that.”

“You really talk to people and, you know what drove a lot of people?” said Tom Carroll, a conservative activist from Bethlehem, Pa. “Believe it or not, they won’t leave Trump for anything. But it’s not because they love Trump, it’s because they love their families, they love their country, and they were fearful of what was gonna happen if Hillary Clinton got elected president.”

Some voters said Trump is being punished by the media for having defeated Clinton.

“The press has an agenda, and it isn’t the same agenda as his,” said Pennsylvanian Keith Jones. “Hillary was their darling, Obama was their darling. And you kick them in the shins there, and they get a little ornery. They’re ornery, and they’re trying to run Trump into the ground.”
