Donald Trump, a former president, recently declared his bid for the presidency in 2024, although he doesn’t seem to have the same influence as before.

A poll by Quinnipiac University on Wednesday revealed that Trump’s popularity among voters has fallen to its lowest level in more than seven years.

The poll

According to a Quinnipiac University poll, only a pitiful 31% of registered voters have a favorable opinion of the former US President.

59% of those who participated in the survey had an unfavorable opinion.

The university reports that Donald Trump’s rating in the survey is at its lowest point since he announced his first presidential campaign in July 2015.

Independent voters didn’t think things were getting any better.

Comparatively, only 25% of respondents supported Donald Trump, while 62% disapproved of him.

Since Quinnipiac posted the poll in May 2015, the evaluation was his lowest in the group.

The results among his fellow Republicans were marginally better, with Trump receiving 70% favorable and 20% negative votes.

Although there was a big difference, it was still Trump’s lowest approval rating since March 2016.

Between last Thursday and this past Monday, 1,456 registered voters were questioned for the poll, which had a 2.6 percentage point margin of error.

“Former President Trump’s post-presidential announcement numbers are heading in the wrong direction,” said Tim Malloy, a polling analyst for Quinnipiac University.

“You would have to go back at least six years to find less support for him from Republican, independent, and American voters as a whole.”

Biden

President Joe Biden’s job approval rating increased to its best level since September 2021, according to a Quinnipiac University poll, even though it is still below average.

Although 43% of respondents approved and 49% disapproved of Biden’s efforts, the survey nonetheless showed an uptick from the Quinnipiac poll conducted in November.

The poll also revealed that he had a 36% job approval rating and a 55% disapproval rating.

Despite defeating Trump in 2020, President Joe Biden hasn’t declared his desire to run for office again in 2024.

He did, however, say that he would fight Trump again.

Despite his statements, most registered voters surveyed by Quinnipiac said they would prefer not to see Trump or Biden nominated for President in 2024.

Signs

The Quinnipiac poll is the most recent in a line of surveys that indicate Trump’s support is either dwindling or collapsing after the midterm elections in November.

Following the defeat of many of the candidates he personally supported in high-profile contests, Donald Trump has recently been under pressure from his fellow Republicans.

As a result, in a season many predicted would favor the GOP, the Democrats increased their Senate majority.

A rising power

Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, has been gaining ground as Donald Trump’s influence declines.

In the Republican Party, DeSantis is one of the rising stars.

He handily prevailed in the November reelections and established a significant lead over Trump in the early 2024 Republican primary polls.

In a Wall Street Journal poll conducted on Wednesday, DeSantis had a double-digit lead over Trump among probable GOP primary voters (52% to 38%).

The outcome had a plus or minus six percentage point margin of error.

DeSantis didn’t declare a run for President, but the result came.

Instead, he agreed to serve another four-year term as governor.

Additionally, the Florida governor was not raised for President in the Quinnipiac survey.

When questioned, a Trump-affiliated source cited a recent Morning Consult poll indicating that Trump was the clear front-runner.

49% of likely GOP primary voters supported him, compared to 31% endorsed DeSantis.

Trump

Donald Trump is the only significant contender to date to declare his 2024 presidential campaign.

Unfortunately, he has yet to spend a lot of time campaigning.

Instead, his campaign for the White House has been marred by scandals and defeats.

Trump advocated for the abolition of the Constitution on social media to regain power.

Later, he would retract his remarks.

Trump also had dinner with Ye, a musician who lost popularity after making antisemitic remarks and identifying as a white supremacist.

Herschel Walker, the former President’s first choice for the Georgia Senate, fell short in a runoff election in December against Senator Raphael Warnock.

In the end, two Trump Organization entities received criminal convictions.

A jury in New York this week found Trump’s companies guilty of several offenses, including:

  • Tax fraud
  • Falsifying business records
  • Conspiracy

Three weeks after announcing his candidacy for President in 2024, Trump received guilty verdicts on 17 offenses.

The ruling dissatisfied Trump, who declared he would appeal.

“It is a continuation of the Greatest Political Witch Hunt in the History of our Country,” he wrote in a statement.

“New York City is a hard place to be ‘Trump.'”
