Only 15% Of Brits Would Vote For Trump If They Could

Newsweek reports:

More than half of British voters say they would vote for former Vice President Joe Biden over President Donald Trump, if given the chance to participate in the upcoming 2020 election, exclusive Newsweek polling reveals. Conducted by Redfield & Wilton Strategies, the poll, which saw 1,500 adults surveyed online on Sunday, found that 51 percent of British voters would throw their support behind Biden, compared to just 15 percent who would back Trump.

Thomas Gift, a political scientist at University College London, said the numbers “confirm what’s generally considered conventional wisdom: Trump remains unpopular in the U.K., and most citizens hold his presidency in low esteem.” “They also likely reflect a broader trend emblematic of the Trump era-that of waning trust in U.S. leadership abroad—which stands in stark contrast to the Obama administration and likely limits the ability of the U.S. to project ‘soft power’ globally,” Gift said.
