In his four long years in office, Donald Trump’s approval rating never once topped 50 percent, no matter how many times he insisted that Rasmussen Reports said it did. Never once was Trump able to gain the approval of a majority of the country, nor was he able to convince the majority of voters to cast a ballot for him, neither in 2016 or 2020.

His successor, however, President Joe Biden, has already reached a 63 percent approval rating in some polls just over 100 days after his inauguration. In a Yahoo! News/YouGov poll conducted from May 11-May 13, 2021 of 1,561 U.S. adults on the 2024 elections (yes, they’re already doing those!), Biden beats Trump soundly in a head-to-head matchup. In a very, very early poll for the 2024 elections, Biden topped Trump by a full 12 points. 94 percent of Biden’s voters said they would vote for him again in 2024, while 88 percent of Trump voters said the same.

Only 68 percent of Republicans said that Trump should run again in 2024, while 22 percent said that he shouldn’t and 10 percent said they weren’t sure. With 87 percent of Democrats and 61 percent of Independents indicating that they also believe Trump should sit 2024 out, a total of 57 percent of those polled said Trump should not run, and 12 percent of those polled who said they voted for Trump in 2020 would switch their votes to Biden if the election were held today.

 

In what is sure to be Trump’s favorite talking points at rallies ahead of the 2024 elections, whether or not voters buy Trump’s Big Lie about a stolen 2020 elections will be critical to his potential success. 74 percent of Republicans believe that there was a significant enough level of fraud to have unfairly influenced the 2020 election, while only 13 percent of those identifying themselves as Democrats do. White Americans were most likely to believe this at 42 percent while black Americans were least likely to say the same at just 15 percent. Interestingly, 48 percent of people who were not vaccinated said they believed there was significant fraud while only 27 percent of those who were vaccinated said the same.
