Just 247 days since President Joe Biden took the keys to the Oval Office, a majority of people appear to want him evicted and former President Donald Trump back.
In a stunning turnaround, likely voters today said that given a second chance at Election Day, they’d pick Trump over either Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris. And by a country mile.
The latest Rasmussen Reports survey set for release this morning said that in a Trump-Biden election, Trump would win 51%-41%. Independent voters would overwhelmingly choose the Republican, by 20 points, over the incumbent.
Against Harris, Trump would win 52%-39%.
One-fifth of Democrats would also vote for Trump.
The survey is the latest of dozens that have shown Biden sinking like a stone. Many have turned south since the disastrous withdrawal of U.S. forces and diplomats from Afghanistan and the surge of illegal immigrants over the U.S.-Mexico border.
Others have shown that people are growing worried about Biden’s competence and ability to stay in office long enough to run for reelection.
At the same time, voters have been slow to warm to another Trump bid. But that appears to be over.
Rasmussen found that more likely voters than not want Trump to run again. By a 48%-44% margin, they told the pollster that running in 2024 is a good idea.
Trump, set to host a Georgia rally this weekend, has been hinting at another run, and his top advisers have suggested that a 2024 run is a lock.
The poll does not indicate why voters have warmed to Trump again. But others, notably one from McLaughlin & Associates, have shown that voters want Trump’s leadership style back.
For example, when asked about Trump’s “aggressive, controversial” style, voters now think that it “wasn’t so bad” by a 52%-44% margin.
And by a 56%-40% margin, voters told McLaughlin, “I’m coming to appreciate Trump more, and I’m thinking we need a bit more of Trump’s toughness right now.”
Joe Biden’s approval rating sank to a new low on Monday.
Biden’s approval now sits at 40% — a new low for the man who ran a basement campaign and reportedly received 81 million votes in 2020.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll, sponsored by The ANTIFA by Jack Posobiec, for Monday shows that 40% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Biden’s job performance. Fifty-eight percent (58%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 21% who Strongly Approve of the job Biden is doing and 50% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -29. (see trends)
