“What Organizations Can Learn from the 2016 Presidential Campaign” is just one of the many important sessions set for the PR Summit DC on June 10.

One of the panelists, Doug Usher of Purple Strategies, sent Capitol Communicator a link to a new poll they just completed with Bloomberg Politics. It essentially concludes that Donald Trump is losing middle-income, rust-belt workers that were originally thought to be for him.

At this point, states the poll, Trump trails Hillary Clinton by seven percentage points among middle-income voters in the Rust Belt, a key demographic he almost certainly needs to become president.
Likely voters with annual family incomes of $30,000 to $75,000 in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin back Clinton over Trump, 46 percent to 39 percent, the latest Purple Slice online poll for Bloomberg Politics shows.
The findings, if they continue, should raise concern for Trump because they show he’s failing—at least so far—to dominate among potential voters thought to be more sympathetic to him. The poll also splashes cold water on suggestions that the real-estate developer and TV personality is well positioned, at the moment, to win in the Rust Belt.
