More than half of U.S. consumers say they will not shop online anymore, according to a new survey, the biggest survey of its kind ever conducted.
The findings are a stark reminder of the extent to which Americans have given up on Donald Trump, who has consistently shown little interest in them as consumers and even a preference for online shopping.
And while some of that may be because they don’t want to give away their credit card numbers, it also may be partly due to concerns about Trump’s policies.
Some 59 percent of respondents said they would shop online in the future if Trump were to be re-elected, while just 13 percent said they were unsure.
That’s a stark reversal from the survey last year, when more than 80 percent said that they would keep shopping online.
The poll of 1,100 people was conducted last Friday through Sunday, surveying 1,000 adults.
The margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
Ahead of the survey, Amazon was also getting a boost from an online advertising campaign that had its sights set on Trump.
The retailer is advertising on CNN and other platforms to promote its Prime service.
Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos said on Monday that the company was going to do whatever it takes to keep customers coming back to its online stores.
“We’re going to have to keep doing what we’re doing,” Bezos said.
“But if we keep doing it, it’s going to make our business work.”
Amazon said its Prime program offers discounted prices on hundreds of products, including movies, music, games and health and beauty products.
The company has also been boosting its efforts to reach millennials.
The company has made clear it wants to expand its Prime business, including its ability to offer a new Prime membership for $199 a year, a deal that includes a two-year free trial.
Bezos has also launched a new line of e-commerce services aimed at younger consumers.
Trump has repeatedly promised to cut taxes and take money from companies that leave the U.N. in order to pay off debt.
Amazon, which makes some of the largest products in the world, is not the only company to have criticized the president.
The CEO of Apple said in September that he was concerned about Trump.
