    • 59% of Suburban White Women approve
  • 55% of respondents support President Trump's payroll tax cut executive order.

  • 50% of respondents trust Republicans to help rebuild the economy, compared to 42% trust for Democrats.
  • 56% of respondents believe "free-market solutions" are best to tackle the coronavirus, whereas only 26% believe the government should take the lead.

Socialism/Radical Left:

  • 51% of respondents agree the radical left has infiltrated our public education system, from kindergarten all the way to our universities, and is quietly indoctrinating our American kids on a number of radical liberal ideals, including 53% of independents.
  • 54% of respondents agree that in recent years, Democrat elected officials have strongly embraced socialism and are actively pursuing an agenda to make America as socialist as most European countries, including 55% of independents. 

Civil Unrest:

  • 51% of respondents agree the protests we're seeing across the country have stopped being about racial injustice and have become violent riots by people who hate America and want to tear down our government and radically change American culture, including 53% of independents.
  • A staggering 75% of respondents oppose defunding the police, including 77% of independents, 78% of suburban white women, 69% of Hispanics and 63% of African Americans.
