美國民調:川普、民主黨、共和黨,誰都不受青睞


ANN@The China Post

A pair of polls released Sunday showed President Donald Trump approaching his 100th day in office with the lowest level of support any modern president. 上周日公佈的兩份民意調查顯示,美國總統唐納德•川普創下了美國現代歷任總統執政百天支援率的最低紀錄。

Forty-two percent of people in an ABC News/Washington Post poll said they approved of Trump’s performance so far, while 53% said they disapproved. An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll had 40% of respondents saying they approved of Trump and 54% saying they disapproved. 美國廣播公司新聞頻道和《華盛頓郵報》聯合開展的民調顯示,42%的人對川普上任以來的表現表示滿意,53%的人表示不滿意。而美國全國廣播公司和《華爾街日報》聯合開展的民調顯示,40%的人感到滿意,54%的人表示不滿意。

But the bad news wasn’t Trump’s alone. The ABC/Washington Post poll found significant majorities said both the Democratic and Republican parties were “out of touch” with the concerns of most Americans. 而不盡如人意的不止總統川普。美國廣播公司和《華盛頓郵報》的民調還顯示,絕大多數人認為民主黨和共和黨都對大多數美國民眾的關切“不甚瞭解”。

Sixty-seven percent of respondents said the Democratic Party was out of touch, as did 62% for the Republican Party. Less than a third said either party was “in touch.” 這樣評價民主黨的人占到67%,共和黨為62%。不到三分之一的人認為兩黨 “能瞭解”(民眾關切)。

Trump fared slightly better than the parties, with 58% saying he was out of touch. 總統川普情況稍好,有58%的人認為他不瞭解民眾的關切。

Despite Trump’s low approval numbers, the poll showed him retaining support among his base, with 96% of people who said they voted for him saying they would do so again. The poll showed only 85% of those who voted for Hillary Clinton would do so again, with most of those who would not saying they would either go with a third-party candidate or not vote at all. 儘管支援率偏低,但是民調顯示川普保持了原支持者對自己的認可度,96%的曾經投票給他的人表示還願意再把選票投給他,而曾經投票給希拉蕊•克林頓的人中,只有85%的人願意再這麼做,剩下15%中的大多數人表示要投給二人之外的候選者或直接棄權。

That difference in remaining support for the two candidates would mean Trump would best Clinton 43 to 40% in a hypothetical rematch today. In the actual election Clinton failed to achieve an electoral victory but outpaced Trump by almost 2.9 million votes, with 65,853,516 (48.18%) to his 62,984,825 (46.09%) according to the Federal Election Commission. 這一差異意味著倘若今天再大選一次,川普也將以43%對40%的優勢戰勝希拉蕊。根據聯邦選舉委員會的資料,希拉蕊雖在大選中落敗,但是其選票超過川普將近290萬張,共獲得6585萬3516 (48.18%)張選票,川普則獲得6298萬4825 (46.09%)張。
