The more union members hear about Donald Trump—he supports dangerous "right to work" laws, refuses to negotiate with working people who formed a union at his hotel and ignores union issues—the less they like him.
One of our latest internal polls shows Trump has plummeted 12 points among union members in Ohio. From June to early September, he is now down from 44 to 32%. How bad is that? Trump is performing five points worse than Mitt Romney did in the 2012 presidential election when he received 37 percent of the union vote in Ohio.
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka spoke at the Ohio AFL-CIO Convention today:
This year, America’s labor movement has unleashed the most comprehensive and sophisticated electoral program in our history. It’s working. We are cutting through Trump’s bluster and getting to the heart of his record. Trump may be loud, but we are clear. Since June, Trump’s support among union members in Ohio has dropped 12 points. Let me repeat that. Trump’s support among union members in Ohio has dropped 12 points in the last three months. You did that! Donald Trump is in a nosedive because of the conversations each of you are having.
