PITTSBURGH—One-fifth of Donald Trump’s supporters view Bill Clinton favorably, according to our polling. Many of these white, working-class voters live in the Rust Belt. They helped Bill carry Pennsylvania twice, and their support for the GOP nominee in 2016 is partly why this state has become a battleground.
“I really liked Bill Clinton. He triangulated. It worked,” said Trump supporter Jerry Bernard, 61. “He got welfare reform done. It seems like we’ve gone backwards as a country since that time.”
