Why does Trump keep coming back to Ohio?
- He knows he can’t win the White House without us.
- Ohio is in play because of Trump’s Broken Promises and failed policies.
Over the past year, Trump’s approval ratings have been steady in Ohio — steadily underwater. A July 2019 Quinnipiac University poll found Trump had a negative 43 – 52 percent job approval rating.
An October 2019 Emerson poll had Trump’s approval rating in Ohio at 43 percent.
The Morning Consult Trump Tracker poll shows that Trump’s net approval rating in Ohio has decreased by 18 percentage points since he took office.
Trump is underwater here because Ohioans are waking up to Trump’s Broken Promises. As one former worker at the now-shuttered @GM factory in Lordstown put it: “He lied. He told everybody it’s all coming back. It’s not.”
At a September 2016 speech in Toledo, Trump promised, “New factories will come rushing onto our shores.” Manufacturing has fallen to its lowest level since 2009.
Trump promised there would be “insurance for everybody.” Ohio’s uninsured rate has gone up, and in 2018, 58,000 more Ohioans went without health insurance, compared to the year before.
Trump said he wants to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions. In fact, he is backing a lawsuit that jeopardizes health care for 4.8 million Ohioans with pre-existing conditions.
The Ohio Dems aren’t waiting until we have a nominee to take the fight to Trump. We’re holding him accountable every time he sets foot in the Buckeye State. Today we were in Toledo, reminding Ohioans of Trump’s Broken Promises.
We’re running an aggressive digital program that is highlighting how Trump’s Broken Promises and failed policies are hurting Ohioans.
Meanwhile, Trump’s campaign is flooding Ohio with Facebook ads. Another Acronym tracks Trump’s digital spending by state, and we’re ranked fourth.
If Ohio Dems are going to keep up with the massive investment Trump and his super PAC are making in Ohio, we need resources — and we need them right now.
A blue Ohio in 11 months means the end of Trump’s presidency, as well as the end of the worst gerrymandering in the country. Thank you for helping us get it done.
