Well, Donald Trump is not the prettiest girl at the ball any longer. Oh, he believes that he is, but the pumpkin coach and footmen are waiting for him right outside of the castle entrance waiting to take him back to Never Never Never Land. The clock has ticked past midnight, and his gown has gone back to its tattered self. He is just pitiful, limping around the dance floor, his own raggedly self. Apparently, he lost one of his breaking-glass slippers when he was jumping up and down during a televised wrestling match trying to get his face all over the camera, trying to capture America’s attention. See what we mean.
‘Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say, 63% to 37%, that Trump should be the leader of the Republican Party. But they are about evenly split over whether having the defeated former President back on the ticket in 2024 would be an advantage.’
Trump came across as a real loser:
‘Fifty-one percent say that Republicans have a better chance of retaking the presidency if Trump is the nominee, with 49% saying the party would be better off with a different nominee. That’s a very different landscape from 2019 when more than three-quarters of Republicans said their party had a better shot in 2020 with Trump as their nominee than they would with a different candidate.’
Subsequently, the former president’s support does not reflect an equal distribution:
‘Trump’s support isn’t equally distributed throughout the party: 69% of Republicans without a college degree think Trump should head the party, compared with 49% of those who hold a college degree. A 72% majority of conservatives say Trump should head the party, compared to 49% among the smaller bloc of moderates in the party. And 71% of self-identified Republicans want Trump to lead the party, compared with 51% of Republican-leaning independents who say the same.’
If he ran in 2024, Trump would be offering President Joe Biden a big present, the Independents. The ex has always had trouble with the Independents. Just 51 percent of the ones who lean to the Republicans’ side wanted him in 2020. That would be an easy repeat in 2024.
It appeared the only ones who could support him again in a presidential election were his hardcore “supporters and [to a certain extent] conservatives.”
The old out-of-sight-out-of-mind mantra held true in the poll. He fell to 24 percent which was the lowest since 2019.
Should the ex run again, he would be the only president to lose two races, because after all, we knew the 2016 was stolen from Secretary Hillary Clinton with the Russians’ help.
The MarketWatch took another cut at the poll, showing that the survey occurred from August 3 through September 7, 2021 with 2,119 adults 18-years-old or over participating. The random households were originally contacted by mail. Those who took the survey did so by web (1,943) or phone (176). The margin of error was 2.8 +/- percent.
