Trump favorability sinks to lowest level since 2015: survey
Former President Trump’s favorability rating has sunk to its lowest level since 2015, as he mounts his run to reclaim the White House, according to a new Quinnipiac University Poll.
The rating is Trump’s lowest recorded by Quinnipiac since July 2015, just after he’d announced his first run for the presidency.
The former president has a 70 percent favorable rating within his own party — but that figure is also the lowest recorded among Republicans since 2016, according to the pollster.
Seventy percent of all voters in the Quinnipiac poll — including 38 percent of Republicans — said they don’t want to see Trump as the GOP’s 2024 nominee.
Other recent polls have shown Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) surpassing Trump nationally among Republican voters looking ahead to 2024.
Trump recently argued on Truth Social that Twitter’s handling of the controversial New York Post article on President Biden’s son back in 2020 meant the Constitution’s election rules should be “terminated” to allow Trump to return to the White House.
Conducted Dec. 8-12, the poll surveyed 1,456 registered U.S. voters and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
