Veteran pollster Matt Towery, the chairman of InsiderAdvantage Georgia, has come out of retirement and is back in the polling business. A new Towery Survey of 1,000 voters in Georgia conducted over the past weekend shows a surge in the number of residents supporting President Donald Trump.
The survey, initially done for “The Sean Hannity Show” on the cable Fox News Channel, was conducted using the same methodology that Towery used in 2016 to project that Trump would defeat Hillary Clinton for president.The Georgia results in the December poll show a substantial increase in job approval for the president in the nation’s eighth-largest state, as compared to the findings of a Atlanta Journal- Constitution/University of Georgia survey released Nov. 12th.
Trump Job Performance:
Approve: 52% Disapprove: 42% Undecided: 6%
Support Impeachment: 13% Support Removal: 33% Oppose impeachment: 50% Undecided: 4%
“My survey indicates that the impeachment effort by congressional Democrats is likely having an unintended yet forceful impact on voter approval for President Trump. Namely, it’s driving approval ratings for the president much higher,” said Matt Towery.
“We can see the driving force in this increase in job approval by comparing the support for what was five weeks ago an impeachment inquiry and support for Trump’s removal from office. Approval for the impeachment inquiry in November was 54 percent in Georgia, with 44 percent against,” he added.
Towery says he intends to do more Georgia polling in 2020. Read the full survey here.
