Sixty-two per cent of Trump voters have a somewhat or very unfavourable view of Meghan Markle, a new poll from The Economist and YouGov shows.

Forty-six per cent of those who voted for Donald Trump in the 2020 election hold a very unfavourable view of the Duchess of Sussex, while 16 per cent hold a somewhat unfavourable view.

One quarter of Trump loyalists have a very or somewhat favourable view of her.

She does much better with the American public at large with 47 per cent having some level of a positive opinion about her.

Who you voted for in the 2020 election turns out to be a pretty good indicator of what your opinion of Meghan Markle will be.

On the other side of the aisle, 72 per cent of those who voted for Joe Biden have a favourable opinion of her, while just 14 per cent of the Democratic coalition hold a negative view about the Duchess.

Three-quarters of Biden fans have a positive opinion when it comes to Prince Harry, with just 10 per cent on the negative side.

Thirty-eight per cent of Trump voters approve of Harry, while 46 per cent disapprove.

Most royals are viewed well by both Trump and Biden voters, but exceptions to the rule include Prince Charles, his wife Camilla, and Prince Andrew.

Sixty-six per cent of all respondents liked the late Princess Diana, according to the poll. Just 9 per cent held a bad opinion of her.

In the Biden camp, 79 per cent held a favourable view of Diana, 6 per cent held an unfavourable view.

In the Trump tent, 67 per cent held a positive opinion of Diana, with 11 per cent putting themselves on the negative side.
