Trump’s Favorability Rating Now 5 Points Higher Than Biden’s: Rasmussen Poll

President Trump now has a higher favorability rating than Joe Biden.

  • 51% of Americans now have a favorable view of Trump, a Rasmussen poll of 1,066 likely voters shows.
  • Only 46% say the same about Biden.
  • Biden’s unfavorable rating is also higher than Trump’s, a majority of 52% viewing Biden unfavorably.

President Joe Biden would lose an election rematch to former President Donald Trump, who would win among independents and almost evenly split Hispanic voters.

A new Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that, if the election were held today, just 40% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote to reelect Biden, while 46% would vote for Trump. Another 10% would choose some other candidate in a Biden-Trump rematch.

Trump would get 81% support from GOP voters and Biden would get 75% of Democrats if the election were held today. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, however, Trump would win by a 16-point margin, with 45% to Biden’s 29% of the vote.

  • Biden’s favorable rating stood at 42%, according to RealClearPolitics poll, while his unfavorable rating stood at 52.6%, giving him a net rating of -10.6 percent.
  • The RCP poll also found that Biden’s unfavorability is higher than Trump’s, the GOP leader’s standing at 51.7%, compared to 41.8 who view him favorably, giving him a net rating of -9.9 percent.
  • Breitbart notes how ‘favorability’ is not the same as ‘job approval,’ favorability having more to do with liking someone than liking the job they’re doing.
  • Breitbart also speculated Biden’s low ratings are the result of 1) his bad policies regarding violent crime, inflation, COVID, open borders, empty store shelves, and gas prices, 2) his no longer being able to “hide in his basement like he did during the 2020 presidential campaign,” and 3) his faults getting more airtime than Trump’s now that Trump has been “booted from social media.”
