A majority of Americans (56 percent) approve of Mr. Trump’s decision to give $12 billion in aid to farmers affected by new tariffs. This includes three-quarters of Republicans, three-quarters of conservatives and a third of Democrats. Both free trade, and resistance to federal programs distributing funds, have long been hallmarks of Republican Party policy, but Republican rank-and-file are mainly following the president on this. (They also consider Mr. Trump a “different kind of Republican,” and overwhelmingly say they like the fact that he is.)
