Trump more popular than Biden in latest poll

Former President Donald Trump ranked more popular than President Joe Biden, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released on Monday.

Though statistically tied, “Forty-eight percent of respondents say they have a positive view of Trump compared to 46 percent who say they have a favorable opinion of his successor.”

In addition, “Biden’s favorability is slightly underwater, however: 49 percent of those surveyed said they have an unfavorable view of the current president, while slightly less — 47 percent — report an unfavorable opinion of Trump.”

The poll marked a shift from Biden ranking much more favorable in comparison with Trump during the earlier months of his term. A controversial withdrawal from Afghanistan, a growing border crisis and increased inflation have changed the perspective of Biden among many Americans.

Trump also ranks highest among potential Republican presidential candidates for 2024.

“In the poll, Trump holds a massive lead of 45 points to the second-best challenger, former Vice President Mike Pence, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who sits in third place with 9%,” according to Newsmax.

Trump has continued to remain active after leaving office. With his communications and rallies, the former president seems to be gearing up for a comeback run in 2024.
