Trump’s Approval Rating Higher Now Than When He Left Office: Poll

On the same day that Joe Biden blamed Donald Trump for the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan 6, a poll reveals voters view Trump even more favorably now than that day.

QUICK FACTS:
  • A Rasmussen Reports poll shows nearly 9 in 10 Republicans now have a favorable view of Trump, the Washington Examiner reports.
  • The national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen found that 52% of likely U.S. voters have a favorable impression of Trump.
  • 33% have a “very favorable” view of the 45th President.
  • 47% of voters view Trump “unfavorably,” including 38% who have a “very unfavorable” impression of him.
  • The poll also showed Biden’s favorability declining, just 28% of voters predicting his reelection. “Voter confidence in President Joe Biden’s ability to do the job remains low and most don’t expect a second term for the oldest president in U.S. history,” said Rasmussen.
  • The Examiner explained: “The survey, like others before it, shows that many Republicans are sticking with Trump despite efforts by legacy media and Democrats to ridicule the 45th president and blame him for the Jan. 6 Capitol riots and dividing the nation.”
INDEPENDENTS QUESTION WHO’S PULLING BIDEN’S STRINGS:

“58% of Independents think others are making the decisions for Biden behind the scenes,” RASMUSSEN REPORTED IN A TWEET.

BACKGROUND:
  • “Trump’s Rasmussen approval rating was 51%. His GOP approval was 84%, actually increasing support,” the examiner notes.
