The latest Rasmussen poll indicates that President Trump would be declared the winner of a presidential election against Joe Biden if one were held today.
The survey, which was conducted on Aug. 16-17, polled 1,000 likely U.S. voters and the results were clear: Trump would beat Biden by a landslide in a presidential matchup.
When asked which candidate they would cast their vote for today, 43 percent of likely voters would support President Trump while only 37 percent of would vote for Joe Biden. 14 percent indicated they would vote for some other candidate.
The polling group concluded that 13 percent of likely Democrat voters would give President Trump their vote, possibly indicating some “buyer’s remorse” for voting for Biden.
In fact, the study showed that nearly 1 in 10 Democrats regret their vote from 2020, suggesting that Trump is becoming even more popular outside of his conservative base. 11 percent of respondents ages 18 to 39 said they regret who they voted for in 2020. Even more African-Americans, 14 percent, regret their vote as well.
12 percent of moderates and 9 percent of all Democrats indicated the same remorse for giving Biden their votes.
Reflecting Biden’s failure to secure the safety of Americans in Afghanistan, rising inflation, poor handling of border security, and a variety of other issues, his approval numbers have begun to decline.
As the survey shows a huge dip in support for Biden, his approval rating reached an all-time low of 47 percent this week, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.
Biden has faced fierce backlash following the collapse of the Afghanistan government. Particularly, his controversial order to withdraw all U.S. troops from the region, while leaving thousands of Americans behind, has received criticism from both sides of the political aisle and is likely to affect future approval ratings.
