(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump’s encouragement of coronavirus lockdown protests hasn’t proved popular in the key battleground state of Ohio.

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Columbus last week chanting “Open Ohio” and “Tyrant DeWine” as part of a recent wave of national protests of lockdown orders. Trump has encouraged the protests on Twitter.

But a recent Baldwin Wallace University poll showed only 25% of Ohio voters agreed with the protests, while only 21% approved of Trump’s calls for people to protest lockdown orders. Republican Governor Mike DeWine’s lockdown order, meanwhile, had 90% supported it, while only 9% opposed it.

Overall, Ohioans were far more approving of DeWine’s handling of the coronavirus than Trump’s, with 85% saying they approved, compared with just 50% who approved of Trump’s handling of the pandemic.

The survey of 797 registered voters in Ohio was conducted April 20-25, starting the same day as the protests began in Columbus. It has a margin of error of 3.7 percentage points.

Coming up:

Ohio will hold an absentee-only primary on Tuesday. Both Guam and Kansas have in-person voting scheduled for May 2.
