Democrats Are Reconsidering Their Opinions on Donald Trump

A new poll suggests that Democrats might be reconsidering their views on former President Donald Trump as the 2024 presidential election approaches.

According to a recent Harvard/Harris CAPS poll, Democrats’ overall approval of former President Trump has actually increased since he left office in January 2021. This is despite the fact that Democrats have traditionally given him low marks due to their opposition on various issues such as immigration, abortion rights, and the economy.

Amidst a heated presidential race, Donald Trump maintains a significant lead in the Republican primary over Nikki Haley, the former Governor of South Carolina and ex-United Nations Ambassador. Having emerged victorious in crucial early voting states, Trump seems poised to secure the nomination, setting the stage for a potential rematch against President Joe Biden in November. However, despite this, many voters have expressed a longing for fresh leadership in the Oval Office.

According to the poll, 29% of Democrats expressed approval of “the job that Donald Trump did as president.” The survey, which included 2,022 voters, was conducted from February 21 to 22.

Even though 70 percent of Democrats continue to express their disapproval of Trump’s performance as president, it is important to note that this still constitutes a relatively low number.

In January 2020, the Harvard/Harris CAPS poll asked the same question in their monthly poll, indicating a notable change from the current poll conducted during Biden’s presidency. This survey was released during a similar timeframe as the one conducted during Trump’s presidency.

According to a poll conducted from January 27 to 29, 2020, only 14 percent of Democrats expressed approval for Trump’s job performance. The survey, which included 2,527 voters, did not provide the margin of error.

The latest warning sign for Biden in his quest to secure victory in the November election comes in the form of the poll.

Recent surveys have shown that Biden’s poll numbers in a head-to-head matchup against Trump have been low. Additionally, he has faced criticism from progressive groups for his handling of the war between Israel and Hamas, which could potentially harm his campaign in crucial states. Furthermore, questions have been raised about his age.

Despite it still being early in the campaign season, Biden’s supporters are confident that Democrats will ultimately reject Trump at the ballot box in November. They firmly believe that Biden is fully capable and fit to serve as the President of the United States.

Republicans have also expressed concerns about Trump’s candidacy, with some cautioning that his legal troubles could potentially erode his popularity, especially if he were to be convicted of a crime prior to November. While Trump faces charges in four different criminal cases, he asserts his innocence and has pleaded not guilty to all of them. Detractors have also questioned Trump’s mental fitness.

According to the latest poll, Republicans have a more unfavorable opinion of Biden compared to Democrats’ view of Trump. A mere 11 percent of Republicans expressed their approval of Biden’s job performance.

According to a set of polls, 39 percent of independent voters have expressed their approval of Biden’s job performance. However, back in January 2020, it was reported that 42 percent of independent voters approved of Trump’s job performance.

On Monday, both the Biden and Trump campaigns were contacted by Newsweek via email for comment.
