CHICAGO – If you've ever wondered why you don't see very many Trump bumper stickers or red MAGA caps when you're out and about in Illinois, well there's a reason: Trump isn't well-liked here, in case you haven't noticed.
In fact, Illinois is one of the nation's most anti-Trump states, according to a state-by-state approval rating poll released by Morning Consult. Illinois disapproves of Trump almost as much as Left Coast California and East Coast New York do.
In January 2017, 49% of Illinoisans approved of Trump. In July 2018, 38% approve of Trump and 58% disapprove.
