Episode 3,  May 13, 2020, 06:00 AM

Over the course of Donald Trump’s presidency, pundits and pollsters have wondered aloud about what could rupture the president’s support among his key constituency groups. A recent survey released by PRRI suggests that the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic could be a factor. 
On the podcast this week, we talk with PRRI Public Fellow and Emory University Associate Professor Andra Gillespie about this new survey on Trump’s favorability and explore where his numbers stand across key demographics. We also talk about coronavirus, how government response has influenced perceptions of the president, and how the politics of coronavirus are playing throughout the country and Gillespie’s home state of Georgia.
