Yes they do. But this goes back to my point about independents. Trump won the White House because he won the independent vote. These swing voters disliked Hillary more than they disliked Trump. History has shown voters usually don't vote for someone they dislike.

Right now you have 27% of independents liking Trump, 40% dislike him with 18% who neither like nor dislike him and 14% not sure. Question 110

The main reason for their dislike of Trump isn't his policies. They're fairly split evenly, for some, against some. It's his obnoxious, uncouth personality along with his very unpresidential behavior.

One has to remember Trump won the independent vote in 2016 with only 46% voting for him, Hillary received 42% while 12% voted third party, against both. That's some 9 million voters who were so disgusted with both major party candidates they choose a third name on the ballot that they knew nothing about. That they knew couldn't win, but voted for them anyway because their last name wasn't Trump nor Clinton

If you think about that, 54% of independents voted against Trump, 58% against Hillary. Biden is like more than Hillary ever was by independents.
