Although he doesn’t have the same power as before, former president Donald Trump recently announced his bid for the presidency in 2024.
Trump’s support among voters has reportedly dropped to its lowest point in more than seven years, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released on Wednesday.
Only a tiny 31% of registered voters have a favorable opinion of the former US President, according to a Quinnipiac University survey.
An adverse opinion was held by 59% of poll respondents.
According to the university, Donald Trump’s rating in the study is at its lowest point since he declared his first presidential campaign in July 2015.
Independent voters believed that nothing was improving.
In contrast, only 25% of respondents endorsed Donald Trump, while 62% thought less favorably of him.
The evaluation was his lowest among the group ever since Quinnipiac published the survey in May 2015.
Trump saw a somewhat stronger showing from his fellow Republicans, who gave him 70% favorable and 20% negative votes.
Despite the significant difference, Trump’s approval rating was still at its lowest since March 2016.
One thousand four hundred fifty-six registered voters were questioned between last Thursday and this past Monday 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.”
A Quinnipiac University survey found that President Joe Biden’s job approval rating rose to its highest point since September 2021, despite being still below average.
The survey showed an improvement from the Quinnipiac poll in November, even though 43% of participants supported and 49% disapproved of Biden’s initiatives.
According to the poll, he had a 36% approval rating for his performance and a 55% disapproval rating.
President Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump in 2020 but hasn’t said whether he plans to run for politics again in 2024.
He did, however, promise to challenge Trump once again.
Despite his assertions, the majority of registered voters polled by Quinnipiac stated they would rather not see Trump or Biden nominated for President in 2024.

The most recent poll, by Quinnipiac, shows that following the midterm elections in November, Trump’s support is either waning or falling.
Donald Trump has recently come under criticism from his fellow Republicans due to the failure of many of the candidates he personally supported in well-known elections.
As a result, the Democrats strengthened their Senate majority during a season many expected to be favorable to the GOP.
A rising power
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been gaining support as Donald Trump’s standing is eroding.
DeSantis is a rising star in the Republican Party.
He won reelection with ease in November and built a sizable lead over Trump in the early 2024 Republican primary polls.
DeSantis held a double-digit lead over Trump among likely GOP primary voters in a Wall Street Journal poll published on Wednesday (52% to 38%).
The margin of error for the result was six percentage points, plus or minus.
DeSantis didn’t officially announce his candidacy for President, but the polls showed the outcome.
He chose to accept a second four-year term as governor.
The Florida governor was not mentioned as a potential presidential candidate in the Quinnipiac poll, either.
When questioned, a source with ties to Trump cited a recent Morning Consult poll showing Trump as the undisputed front-runner.
He received 49% of the support of potential GOP primary voters, compared to 31% for DeSantis.
So far, only Donald Trump has officially announced his bid for President in 2024.
Unfortunately, he still needs to put more effort into his campaign.
Instead, scandals and setbacks have damaged his presidential campaign.
For example, Trump posted on social media that the Constitution should be abolished to restore power.
He would later apologize for his comments.
Ye, a rapper who fell out of favor after making antisemitic remarks and identifying as a white supremacist, and Trump also had dinner together.
The former President’s first choice for the Georgia Senate, Herschel Walker, was defeated by Senator Raphael Warnock in a runoff vote in December.
In the end, two Trump Organization companies were found guilty of crimes.
This week, a New York jury found Trump’s businesses accountable for a number of infractions, including:
- Tax fraud
- Falsifying business records
Trump was found guilty of 17 charges three weeks after announcing his bid for the presidency in 2024.
Trump said he would appeal the decision because he was unhappy with it.
“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.'”
