Poll: Voters oppose Trump tariffs, 50/31

American voters oppose 50 – 31 percent tariffs on steel and aluminum, and disagree 64 – 28 percent with President Donald Trump’s claim that a trade war would be good for the U.S. and easily won, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today.

Every listed party, gender, education, age and racial group oppose steel and aluminum tariffs, except Republicans, who support tariffs by a lackluster 58 – 20 percent and white voters with no college degree, who are divided with 42 percent supporting tariffs and 40 percent opposed, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.

American voters oppose these tariffs 59 – 29 percent, if these tariffs raise the cost of goods they buy. The tariffs will be good for American jobs, 26 percent say, while 36 percent say tariffs will be bad for jobs and 24 percent say the tariffs will have no impact on jobs.
