A new Farm Futures poll shows farmers significantly plan to support President Donald Trump in the November election.
The poll asked the question, “If the presidential election was held today, would you vote for President Trump?”
Just over 1,000 producers responded, with 75% saying yes. In 2018, 60% said yes to the same question, following the start of the U.S.-China trade war.
Meanwhile, 66% of farmers said yes to the same question in 2019.
In the most recent Farm Futures survey, Trump received high “grades” from farmers on his handling of agriculture, domestic issues and foreign policy.
In 2017, nearly 50% of farmers gave him either an A or B grade on his handling of agriculture and 44.5% on foreign policy.
In 2018, his handling of agriculture slipped to 47.1%.
In Farm Futures’ current survey, Trump received a score of 67% as an A or B grade on his handling of agriculture, and 63% on foreign policy.
