Has Pennsylvania Left MAGA-land?

Poll: Pennsylvanians give low marks to Trump and tariffs

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and Democratic Sen. Bob Casey both hold double-digit leads over lesser-known opponents in new NBC News/Marist poll.


WASHINGTON — Pennsylvania, a state that helped put President Donald Trump in the White House, isn’t too keen on the president’s tariff push, a new NBC News/Marist poll finds, as a near majority fears that the ongoing trade war will ultimately damage the U.S. economy.

Forty-five percent of Pennsylvania adults believe that tariffs and other import barriers will raise costs of consumer goods and hurt the country’s economy. By comparison, 27 percent believe they will protect American jobs and help the economy.

The administration’s trade policy is unpopular across virtually all demographic groups in the NBC/Marist poll — the only groups where a majority supports the tariffs are self-identified Republicans and Trump supporters.

Trump’s job approval rating among adults in the state stands at 38 percent, with 52 percent disapproving of his job performance. Among registered voters, 37 percent approve of Trump’s job and 53 percent disapprove.

This is a slight uptick from his marks in the last NBC/Marist poll of the state from last August, when just 33 percent of adults and 35 percent of voters approved of his job performance.

Just 10 percent of Philadelphians approve of Trump, and things aren’t much better in the suburbs, where Trump has a 30 percent approval rating and a 64 percent disapproval mark.

Support for Trump is higher in the central and western part of the state, where pluralities approve of his job performance.

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and Democratic Sen. Bob Casey are both sitting comfortably ahead of their Republican opponents in NBC/Marist’s new poll.

Wolf leads Republican Scott Wagner by 14 points among registered voters, 54 percent to 40 percent.

The majority of voters — 51 percent — have a favorable view of the incumbent governor, while 39 percent of voters view him unfavorably. Just 10 percent of voters couldn’t decide.

Casey leads Republican Rep. Lou Barletta by 15 points among registered voters, 53 percent to 38. A near-majority — 48 percent — hold a favorable impression of Casey, compared with the 34 percent who view him unfavorably. Eighteen percent couldn’t decide how they view him.
