Voters Have Lowest Opinion of Trump Since 2015: Poll

Former President Donald Trump’s favorable rating has fallen to its lowest level in seven years as he begins his 2024 White House run, according to a poll released Wednesday.

Quinnipiac University’s poll found that just 31% of registered voters have a positive opinion of the 76-year-old former commander in chief, while 59% disapprove of him.

The rating is Quinnipiac’s lowest Trump rating since July 2015, when 27% of registered voters gave the real estate mogul a favorable vote just a month after he announced his 2016 presidential candidacy.

Among registered Republicans, Trump’s supporters are significantly higher, with 70% viewing him positively — but that number is also the lowest among GOP voters since 2016, according to Quinnipiac.

The poll also asked registered voters if they would like to see Trump on the GOP ticket in 2024, to which 70% responded negatively, including 38% of Republicans.

The former president has stumbled out of the gates since announcing the launch of his third straight presidential campaign last month.

His infamous pre-Thanksgiving dinner with anti-Semitic rapper Kanye West and white supremacist Nick Fuentes in Mar-a-Lago drew the ire of Jewish Trump allies and several high-profile Republican Party members.

He also earlier this month called for the “repeal of all rules, regulations and articles, even those contained in the Constitution” for “massive fraud” in the 2020 election.

He later attempted to clarify his social media writing by writing: “What I was saying was that if there is ‘MASSIVE AND WIDESPREAD FRAUD AND DECEPTION,’ as was irrefutably proven in the 2020 presidential election, take immediate action must be done to RIGHT THE WRONG .”

Quinnipiac noted that a slim majority of respondents (51%) said the comment was intended to disqualify Trump from the 2024 race.

The poll of 1,456 registered US voters was conducted December 8-12. It has an error rate of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.

Also on Wednesday, a Wall Street Journal poll found that the Florida government. Ron DeSantis leads the former president among Republican primary voters in a hypothetical neck-and-neck match by 14 percentage points (52% vs. 38%).

DeSantis also outperforms Trump on party approval, with 86% of GOP voters positive for the 44-year-old governor, compared to 74% positive for Trump.
