Donald Trump wins in a rematch against Joe Biden for president.
That's according to Rasmussen Reports.
The recent survey shows 46% say they would vote for Trump if the election were held now, and 40% say they would vote for Biden. Another 10% said they would choose somebody else.
When it comes to "favorability," 49% of voters say they view Trump favorable while 41% indicate they view Biden favorably. Among those numbers, 29% have a "very favorable" impression of Trump compared to Biden's 22%.
Forty-seven percent (47%) say they view Trump unfavorably and 53% say they view Biden unfavorably.
Who would they vote for today?
Not unless ballots are NOT filled on kitchen tables.
Steve C says
How can people support a person that attempted to overthrow the due process of law and reject a Constitutional process that has been in place for over 200 years?
If Trump had succeeded in derailing the election validation process what would stop him from doing it again and again simply because he cannot grasp the concept of people saying “no” to him? King Donald, Emperor Donald, King Trump, Emperor Trump just does not cut the mustard.
He didn't try to overthrow the due process. There were enough questions and anomalies (illegalities) of the 2020 election to DELAY the certification process.
It’s hard to believe that anyone would think that Trump wasn’t trying to “overthrow the due process”. We know from the Jan 6 hearings that Eastman had a plan for Pence to refuse to count the legally submitted electoral votes, then either count the fake electoral votes (that would give Trump more than the 270 needed) or throw it to the House (where Republicans control 26 state delegations). And as icing on the cake, Trump has even admitted in one of his tweets that his goal was to “overturn the election”.
Trump’s claims that he was only trying to DELAY the certification process are completely and transparently false. No, the ultimate goal of all of Trump’s machinations was to somehow for him to remain President.
To believe anything else is simply being willfully blind to the facts (notice that these facts that I have presented are based on sworn testimony; exactly zero of Trump’s “fraud” claims have held up in court).
The idea that we should ignore the certified results of the election (which is what Trump wanted to do) because there are “so many questions” ignores several key points. The first one is that exactly zero of Trump’s claims have carried any weight in a court of law (and don’t use the dodge that these cases were dismissed on technicalities and weren’t really heard – it’s true that some were dismissed for lack of standing but many were actually heard – and the only one that Trump won was related to the timeline of curing mail-in votes in Pennsylvania and was not related at all to potential voter fraud). How do you explain this complete lack of success? Were all of the judges (some appointed by Trump) corrupt?
The second point is that those promoting the Big Lie have yet to produce anything approaching a coherent story about how such a massive fraud involving (at least) five states and, therefore, five separate sets of election officials and tens of thousands of votes could have been perpetrated, all without leaving any hard evidence behind.
Here is a quote from Benjamin Ginsberg (former GOP official):
I spent 38 years doing Election Day operations for Republican party committees and candidates, so I have watched polls and done sort of roving squads, encompassing many precincts on Election Day. I've done the nationwide boiler rooms. And we're always vigilant. We always tried to find that. The truth was we never did. And you have to be honest about the evidence, which is why I took exception to what Donald Trump was saying. But it points up a fact that there needs to be a lot of educating about the election system and the safeguards in it. The truth is you could not possibly commit fraud in the way that they're saying, on a nationwide basis or even on a statewide basis. It would require an unbelievable number of people keeping a secret, which goodness knows we never do in this country about anything, let alone about stealing an election.
But the biggest point is the clear bias of those asking the most questions and making the most noise. And they simply refuse to believe the results of the many recounts and audits and deep dives, none of which turned up any evidence of fraud. Remember that by January 6, hand recounts had been conducted in Georgia, Arizona, and Wisconsin. They all showed that Biden had won. And it wasn’t enough. Since January 6, multiple recounts and audits and deep dives have (again) been conducted (most led by Republicans). And again they showed that Biden won. And it’s still not enough. I’m sorry, but when one side has failed so many times and continues to hew to the same line, it’s hard to believe that they are looking at the issue rationally and logically or that anything would convince them. And it’s hard for me to believe that I am supposed to listen to them when no evidence has been produced after all this time.
We can all argue about different policy positions. They are complicated issues with no perfect answer. But there is only one side to the Big Lie. And Steve C has it exactly right. Trump tried to thwart the peaceful transfer of power based solely on his bruised ego (something never done before in American history). Trump is nothing less than a threat to American democracy. Someone like that who puts his ego ahead of the good of the country has no business holding a position of political authority ever again. And I can’t believe that everyone else doesn’t see that.
I have no problem with Jan 6, except for the fact he or his close advisors would have the question: "what could go wrong?".
I am torn by Trump returning because he has not acknowledged his lack of getting "great" folks on his team. Look at all the people he hired and did not have his back. How will a second term change the fact he does not get the best folks. (Granted, the RNC and the Never Trumpers were assisting in his demise.)
This is a foolish poll because the Democrats will not nominate Biden.
