Former President Trump’s approval numbers has gone up since he left office one year ago, and almost 9 in 10 GOP members now have a favorable opinion of him.
In two surveys this Thursday revealing Trump’s rise and his successor President Biden’s fall, 52% of voters said to Rasmussen Reports that they now have a favorable impression of Donald Trump. Some 47% do not.
Among GOP members, 85% have a good view, with 63% saying they have “very favorable” opinion. Even 23% of Dems and 51% of independents accept this.
When he left Washington on January 20, 2021, Donald Trump’s Rasmussen approval number was 51%. And his Republican approval was 84%, so he is really increasing his support.
The poll, like other polls before it, reveals that many conservatives are sticking with Donald Trump even with efforts by Democrats and media to ridicule the 45th president and put the blame on him for the January 6th Capitol riots and dividing the country.
Trump has hinted at his comeback plans and will run for president in the year 2024. Biden has said that if Trump does, he will run again for reelection.
A second poll given by Rasmussen, however, says that many voters do not think Joe Biden will win.
In that poll, only 28% of voters predicted Joe Biden’s reelection. “Voter confidence in Biden’s ability to do the job is low and most do not expect a second term for the oldest president in the country’s history,” said the surveying outfit.
Without naming by which candidate, 37% stated that they believe Biden would be defeated by a Republican challenger, and 21% stated he would resign before his term is over, presumably elevating VP Kamala Harris.
And only 55% of Dems said Joe Biden would win another term, while 21% believe he would be defeated.
Rasmussen added a telling statistic, “Only 37% of voters believe Joe Biden is really doing the work of president, while most (53%) believe others are making choices for him and another 10% are not completely sure.”
This comes at a time when Americans are growing angry over a range of topics with inflation taking the top mark in recent weeks.
