A new Farm Journal poll offers farmer perspective on Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office. In fact, Farm Journal has tracked farmer opinions on Trump since 2015. Several polls conducted in 2015 and 2016 showed Trump was the clear favorite candidate within the ag sector. The most recent poll wanted to know if farmers were still happy with their choice after his first 100 days in office. The results of the new poll show that farmers still seem to be happy with their choice with 43 percent of the respondents giving Trump an A grade on his first 100 days, while another 30 percent would give him a B. Twelve percent gave Trump a C grade, while 15 percent would give a D or F.
Trump’s first 100 days have been active, assembling a cabinet, signing more than 30 executive orders, and signing 28 pieces of legislation into law. There are several items on Trump’s to-do list that will impact farmers. They include infrastructure upgrades, immigration reform, tax cuts, and renegotiating trade agreements. Trump’s approval rating outside agriculture is much lower, right at 39 percent.
