Farm Progress reports:

Most farmers voted for President Donald Trump, and they continue to hold a favorable opinion of the man occupying the White House, according to a recent survey conducted by Farm Futures. In January, 76% of those surveyed believed Trump would be good for their business. That figure eroded slightly, to 70%, in Farm Futures' March survey.

The latest survey, conducted from July 17 to Aug. 2 shows most farmers still back the president, with 49% giving him an "A" or "B," compared to 20% giving him a "D" or "F."

On domestic issues, 55% of voters give Trump an "A" or "B," while 19% give him a "D" or "F." Trump also scores well on foreign policy among farmers, with only 22% giving him a "D" or "F." More than half of farmers surveyed - 55% - give Trump an "A" or "B" on foreign policy.

Farmers cite the farm bill and tax reform as their priorities for the federal government in the coming year. Only 1% said immigration was the most important issue for their farm that needs to be addressed in the next year.
