POLL: Voters Aged 50+ in Arizona Support Trump and His Policies

A new Politico poll shows voters aged 50 and older in Arizona support President Donald Trump and his policies. According to the poll, 52 percent of voters aged 50 and older approve of the job Trump is doing. Among the 18-49 crowd, only 30 percent approve.

Despite the poll’s focus on the president, it could also have implications for 2018 midterm elections in the House and Senate. When asked if they plan to vote for House Republicans, 44 percent of the 50+ set said yes, while just 30 percent said yes in the 18-49 set. Conversely, just 37 percent of the 50+ respondents said they would vote for House Democrats, while 46 percent of the younger cohort said they would.

Fully 57 percent of 50+ voters support building Trump’s wall along the southern U.S. border, while just 37% percent of younger voters agree.

Arizona voters are divided on Trump’s signature immigration issue: a wall along the border with Mexico: 47 percent support building the wall, while 48 percent oppose it. Older and white voters tend to back the border wall, but only 28 percent of Hispanic voters surveyed support building the wall.

Voters in all demographic groups support creating a clear path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who meet certain requirements, but there is also broad support for deporting those immigrants from the U.S. in a separate poll question.

Overall, the poll could bode well for Democrats’ ability to win over voters in the state in future elections, but for the time being, Trump and Republicans appear to be in a strong position. Generally speaking, older voters are much more likely to turn out to vote than younger voters.
