PPP’s newest polls find New Yorkers wish Donald Trump would just live in Florida, Floridians wish Donald Trump would just live in New York, and Delawareans are quite happy to have Joe Biden living in Delaware.
60% of New Yorkers say they’re ashamed that Donald Trump is from New York, compared to 30% who say they’re proud of the fact. Only 22% want Trump to claim New York as his home, compared to 53% who want him to just claim Florida as his home.
Floridians don’t feel so hot about Trump living there either, but they’re at least nicer about it than the New Yorkers. 47% say they’re ashamed he lives in the state, to 42% who say they’re proud. Just 37% want him to claim Florida as his home, to 47% who would prefer he stick to being a New Yorker.
Delaware feels differently when it comes to Joe Biden. 56% of Delawareans are proud that it’s his home state, to just 28% who say they’re ashamed. New Yorkers wish they could claim Biden as one of their own rather than Trump as well. 51% say they’d rather Biden was from New York, compared to just 28% who prefer Trump being from New York.
Biden has a modest sized lead over Trump in Florida at 48-44. He has clearer leads in Delaware (58-37) and New York (63-32). That represents a 10 point improvement for Biden relative to Hillary Clinton’s margin in Delaware and a 9 point improvement compared to her performance in New York.
