Trump wins endorsement of New York City bodega owners group


(NewsNation) — There’s a new poll, and a new endorsement, both offering good news for the Trump campaign. He’s won the solid backing of a lot of people who work a lot of hours — especially those who toil behind the counters of the small, family-run urban convenience stores known as bodegas.

“Law and order, that’s what we’re looking for,” said Francisco Marte, founder of The Bodega and Small Business Group, which formally endorsed Trump this week.

Trump visited a bodega in New York’s The Bronx neighborhood Tuesday, and was greeted by a huge, enthusiastic crowd.

The endorsement and the welcome may reflect the results of a new poll that shows the more hours people work, the more likely they are to favor the former president.

Emerson College Polling’s survey shows that people who work fewer than 40 hours a week favor President Joe Biden, while those who work more than 40 hours a week tend to like Trump.

The 40-hour mark was the turning point in the poll: 51% of those who work fewer than 20 hours, 52% who work 20 to 29 hours, and 45% of those who work up to 39 hours a week back Biden.

On the other hand, 50% those who work 40 to 49 hours, 59% who work 50 to 59 hours and 80% of those who work 60 or more hours a week say they back Trump.

From the Emerson website:

The Emerson College Polling national survey was conducted April 16-17, 2024. The sample of registered voters, n=1,308, has a credibility interval, similar to a poll’s margin of error (MOE), of +/- 2.6 percentage points. The data sets were weighted by gender, education, race, age, party affiliation, and region based on 2024 registration modeling. Turnout modeling is based on U.S. Census parameters, and voter registration data.
