According to a recent study, the percentage of people who approve of the work that President Joe Biden is doing is on the increase, whilst the percentage of people who like of the job that former President Donald Trump did has hit its lowest point since 2015.
According to a survey conducted by Quinnipiac University and made public on Wednesday, more registered voters continue to disapprove of Biden than approve of him. The poll indicated that 43 percent of respondents approved of Biden while 49 percent disapproved of him. On the other hand, the rating reflected a significant improvement for the current president, who had a rating of just 36% approval and 55% disapproval in an earlier version of the same survey that was published on November 22.
Trump, who only last month declared that he will be running for president for a third time, had a substantially lower approval rating than the previous president. Only 31% of registered voters had a positive opinion of the previous president, while 59% had a negative one; this was the former president’s lowest approval rating since July of 2015.
Particularly notable was a fall in Trump’s approval rating among Republican and independent voters. Even while seventy percent of Republican voters have a positive opinion of Trump, twenty percent of them held an unfavorable opinion of him, marking Trump’s lowest showing in the Quinnipiac poll since March of 2016. Independents handed Trump his lowest rating since the survey started in May 2015, with 25% approving and 62.5% disapproving of his performance as president.
“Is it a ripple of doubt or a rising tidal wave of rejection?” “Is it a building tidal wave of rejection?” Tim Malloy, a polling analyst at Quinnipiac University, commented on the matter in a statement. “The post-presidential announcement statistics for the former President Trump are now declining and are expected to continue doing so. It would be necessary to go back at least six years in order to locate Republican voters, independent voters, and American voters as a whole who have less support for him.”
Recent events have cast doubt on the likelihood of Donald Trump becoming the next nominee of the Republican Party for president. Amidst rumors and speculation regarding a possible primary challenge from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, some Republicans have been trying to distance themselves from the former president.
Trump’s early 2024 campaign has also been plagued by a number of controversial moments from the former president, such as his call to “terminate” the Constitution and his decision to dine with white nationalist Nick Fuentes and embattled rapper Kanye West, who recently praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. These are just a few of the controversial moments that have plagued Trump’s early 2024 campaign.
Despite the fact that Governor DeSantis has not yet declared his campaign for president, recent Republican primary polls show that the former president is now lagging Governor DeSantis. The former president has hinted that he would make a “big announcement” on Thursday.
In the meanwhile, a number of recent surveys have showed that Vice President Joe Biden’s popularity ratings, although they remain unfavorable, are on the increase after Democrats performed better than predicted in the midterm elections this year. According to a survey that was conducted by CNN and published the week before last, the president now has an approval rating of 46 percent and a disapproval rating of 54 percent. This is an increase from the previous month’s split of 41-59 percent.
On the other hand, a survey conducted by Quinnipiac on Wednesday revealed that the majority of Americans would want to avoid a rematch between Biden and Trump in 2024. Seventy percent of respondents stated that they did not want Trump to become the candidate for the Republican Party, while sixty-four percent of voters said that they did not want Biden to become the nominee for the Democratic Party.
The findings of the Quinnipiac poll were based on a nationwide survey that was conducted from December 8 to December 12 and included responses from 1,456 registered voters. The survey has a potential error margin of 2.6 percent.
