Suburban women want the wall, buoying Trump after fleeing in 2018

Suburban women, after fleeing Republicans in the 2018 midterm congressional elections, are coming back to President Trump.

The reason: many want his border wall.

A remarkable new Zogby Analytics poll found that suburban women, more than likely voters, support the wall and Trump?s emergency declaration that will allow him to spend more to build it than Congress has OK?d.

The numbers: 45 percent of suburban women want the president to find other sources of money to build the border wall, versus 40 percent who don?t. And 50 percent back his emergency declaration.

?Even though most voters do not agree with the president's recent actions regarding the border, suburban women do favor his policies. A plurality of suburban women want the president to get funding elsewhere to complete the border fence and half support him declaring a national emergency to do so,? said pollster Jonathan Zogby who gave Secrets an advance look at the results.

?As the 2020 presidential election inches closer, Trump will look to strengthen his support among his base and appeal to swing voter blocs, such as, suburban women. The ?border wall? or ?border fence? will be a key issue he can utilize to help his re-election chances, especially as his Democratic opponents move further to the left regarding immigration policies,? he added.

His latest survey found that Trump?s approval has continued to edge higher, and he?s picking up support from other groups that had soured on the president, including Hispanics, African Americans and independents.

?The president's numbers steadily gained among Independents (39 percent approve/55 percent disapprove) and voters without college degrees (45 percent approve/51 percent disapprove), two groups that helped him win the 2016 presidential election. Another interesting area where President Trump gained ground was with Hispanics (40 percent approve/57 percent disapprove) and African Americans (24 percent approve/70 percent disapprove). Both groups' job approval rating of Trump increased the most in months,? said Zogby?s polling analysis.

And it didn?t end there. More from his poll:

Our last poll witnessed a striking blow to the president's support -- for the first time since we have been tracking Trump's approval, he did not have a majority job approval rating among weekly Walmart Shoppers (47 percent approve/51 percent disapprove). Those numbers also bounced back for the president: 52 percent approve/45 percent disapprove among the all-important consumer voting bloc.

The president's job approval also recovered among his base. He continued to have support among Republicans (81 percent approve/17 percent disapprove), NASCAR fans (56 percent approve/41 percent disapprove), rural voters (51 percent approve/46 percent disapprove), Central/Great Lakes voters (46 percent approve/52 percent disapprove), and voters whose household income is $50,000-$75,000 annually (47 percent approve/51 percent disapprove).

Trump improved with small city voters (46 percent approve/53 percent disapprove) and suburban voters (43 percent approve/52 percent disapprove), but more importantly, he is doing very well with suburban women (50 percent approve/50 percent disapprove), who are vital to his re-election hopes in 2020.
