It’s not just his fellow Republicans that Trump would thrash in a hypothetical primary (though he’d certainly do so by a massive margin). He’d also decimate both Hillary and Brandon in a hypothetical rematch against either.
That’s according to a McLaughlin & Associates survey. It polled American voters on a wide range of hypothetical races, from a generic Congressional ballot (Republicans are up by 5 points; they have 48% support and Dems have 45% support) to a range of potential presidential races.
In terms of Trump compared to his likely Democrat challengers, the poll found that Trump would win by a massive margin.
One question it asked was “If the 2024 Presidential election were held today, which one of the following best describes how you would vote in the general election for President between Donald Trump, the Republican candidate, and Joe Biden, the Democrat candidate, for whom would you vote?”
Voters responded overwhelmingly for Trump, obviously wishing they’d held their noses and voted for him rather than jumping in behind Brandon the Incompetent.
According to the survey, Trump not only won by 5 points (49% Trump to 44% Brandon), but also had more people saying that they would definitely vote for him (37% Trump to 35% Brandon.)
So, when compared to Biden, Trump would win by a healthy, if not absurdly large margin. Still, for a Republican to get a larger share of the popular vote than a Democrat is a major accomplishment.
Oh, and if Brandon’s senility took over and Trump ran against Cackling Kamala, he’d win by 11 points (51% Trump to 40% Kamala), so she’s hardly the horse Democrats should hitch their hopes to.
Similarly, Trump absolutely trounced Hillary in the survey. When running in a hypothetical matchup against her, he won by a double-digit margin, winning 51% of public support compared to her paltry 41%. Considering that that’s far better than he did in the 2016 election, it’s probably fair to say that
The poll also found that, among Independents, 40% planned to vote Republican in the primaries compared to just 34% that planned on voting Democrat.
Though that will admittedly only affect primaries, it’s an encouraging sign in that it signals Independents are seeing themselves more as GOP voters than Democrat voters. Additionally, it might hold true for the presidential election. For example, the survey found that among Independents Trump trounced Hillary by a whopping 15 percentage points (52 Trump to 37 percent Hillary).
While some of that is likely due to a longing for Trump and his prosperous America compared to the malaise-ridden America of Brandon, some of it is also certainly the result of Brandon’s unpopularity. According to the most recent RCP poll average, Brandon is nearly 14 points underwater in approval, with about 55 percent disapproving and 41 percent approving.
Americans are sick and tired of Democrat “governance” and it’s only been a year. How much will Trump and the GOP be up by after three more years of Brandon running America into the ground with his disastrously bad and poorly thought-through policies? Likely, it will be an even healthier margin.
