Buyer’s remorse: Polls say Trump would win if election was today

Most voters would choose former President Donald Trump if he runs in 2024, if he was pitted against either President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris, according to the most recent Rasmussen Report poll of over 1,000 Americans on Sept. 20-21.

The Rasmussen national telephone and online survey found that 48 percent of likely U.S. voters think it would be a good idea for Trump to run for president again in 2024, and 44 percent say it would be a bad idea.

The survey this week shows Trump would beat either Biden or Harris in a hypothetical race. 20 percent of Democrats say they would vote for Trump over Biden or Harris in 2024.

A Gallup Poll this week had 30 percent of Americans approving of the direction of the country, with 69 per cent disapproving.

“Eight months after President Joe Biden’s inauguration, his job approval rating has fallen six percentage points to 43%, the lowest of his presidency. For the first time, a majority, 53%, now disapproves of Biden’s performance,” Gallup reported.

“These findings are from a Sept. 1-17 Gallup poll that was conducted after the U.S. military evacuated more than 120,000 people from Afghanistan. The United States’ exit from the nation’s longest war was marred by the Taliban’s quick takeover of most of the country and a suicide bombing at the airport in Kabul, which killed 13 U.S. service members. Over the same period, COVID-19 infection rates, nationally, were surging, leading to hospital overflows in some regions.”

In a Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll , 51 percent of 1,578 registered U.S. voters considered Trump to be the better leader, while 49 percent prefer Biden, according to the online survey conducted Sept. 15-16.

Since Trump lost the popular vote in November, 2020, getting a 51 percent approval in a liberal-biased poll is a stunning gain for the former president. Biden won the popular vote 51-47.

In the Harvard poll, 49 percent say they view Biden unfavorably, while 47 percent see Trump unfavorably.

Vice President Kamala Harris did poorly in the poll. Fifty-five percent of participants also say that Mike Pence is a better leader than Harris, and 63 percent think Mike Pompeo was a better Secretary of State than current Sec. Antony Blinken.

Biden has been president for 247 days.

  • No doubt Biden will continue to screw up right through 2022 and on to 2024.

    • China Joe Potatohead is never going to make it to 2024.

  • By the time the 2022 elections are here, Biden will have done all the damage he can. With conservatives winning back the Hiuse and Senate, we could at least control the future damage. Pray, pray, pray!

    • Dominion would like to have a word with you

  • Wow, that means he would have won national elections 3 times in a row – right?

  • He did win. He won in 2020 by a landslide. Election fraud stole his win. What ID10T would actually vote for Biden

    • Hold on there Newt. Do you REALLY think Trump won by a landslide? I mean really, just between you and me. Cuz I’ve read of no evidence to support that.

      • That’s because media and “fact checkers” are doing their job to cover up the soft coup and you’re just ignorant enough to not see it.

      • Poor Evan.

        He suffers from perceptual blindness.

        It’s ok Evan, there is treatment for that.

        It’s called pulling your head out of your rear end.

    • My thought exactly when I read article. I would add also the ranked choice voting – I do not believe that proposition truly ‘won’, but was aided and abetted. I suspect this has been going on for awhile and it took this last election to really shed light on it.

  • If Biden and Trump are the only choices this country has, we are in very serious trouble. Biden is 78 and is clearly showing signs of mental decline. If he runs in 2024, Trump will be 78. It is time for new and younger people.

    • You haven’t been paying attention.

      • Not really sure about what you trying to say. Please try to explain yourself, if you can. Suffice it to say that IMO we need national leaders with both a grip on reality and a fidelity to the truth. Neither Biden or Trump can meet that standard.

        • It’s a good thing that your opinion isn’t the standard for decision making, IMO.

          What do you know about the truth other than what you’re picking through to validate your opinion for the lean that makes you feel good about yourself.

          • I actual agree with you. I am happy to discuss any particular fact or event. My main point was about the fundamental criteria we should use to select our national leaders. If you have others in mind, great.

  • Twenty percent of democRATS say they would support Trump? This at a time when Democrats are embracing communism and most Republicans are going along with it? Bogus and wishful thinking

  • That being said, if Ron DeSantis were to run, I think he’d be the better choice, or at the very least, he should be Trump’s running mate.

    • DeSantis/Bronson would be a dream team lol

    • We don’t like him here.

      • You and your 25 different personalities.

    • As if politicians are the answer to our problems. The reason Trump was so successful, was because he wasn’t a politician and genuinely loves this country. There’s nothing genuine about a politician other than knowing how to balance the lies told to win the next election with kissing big corporations cabooses.

      • DT only loves this country if it becomes what he attempted to make it. He’s nothing but a whiner anymore as the country has dismissed him as nothing more than a crackpot who doesn’t believe in the “rule of law.”

        • All you spill is hate Bill. You speak as if you know what is in a man mind and heart personally. What action or policy did Trump enact that ruined this country. Was it taking away the death tax? moving the embassy In Israel to Jerusalem? First time ever Middle East peace agreement against all odds according to previous state departments? Slowing the illegal immigrant flow into the US? Making the Country’s of NATO pay their fair share? Hold China to fair trade practices? Putting a foot on North Korea’s Neck? Stopping Iran’s financial Nuclear backing? Supporting the Second Amendment? Decreasing the number of unemployed? Increasing the national GDP? Giving power back to small businesses? Raising Middle-Class family income to nearly $6,000 – more than five times the gains during the entire previous administration? Raising incomes in every single metro area in the United States for the first time in nearly 3 decades? How about, the number of people claiming unemployment insurance as a share of the population hit its lowest on record? Or maybe jobless claims reached an all times low of 50 years?
          .
          The number of positive accomplishments for all people in this Country is enormous. Why don’t you take the time to review it because it is all about what someone does and not about what someone talks about that is important. Try and put your bias aside and measure a man by his accomplishments only. Trump’s acts were so selfless that he took losses in his businesses and still didn’t take a government paycheck. Biden is rich and still takes our money, in more ways than one!

  • No kidding

  • Haven’t been keeping up with the AZ audit news I guess? Seems like Trump would have won if the election was held in Nov of 2020 as well.

    • Wait a minute. Seems like I recall there being a presidential election in November 2020! And, if you can believe them, the Cyber Ninnies just claimed that Biden got MORE votes than Trump. By a lot.

      • Yes Evan. The fact that you are so conveniently omitting is that many of those votes have been found to be artificial. Approved ballots with no voter signature, duplicated ballots, ballots with pre-printed approval stamps. Just to name a few.

        But go ahead, Evan. You can’t make it any easier to see your lack of critical thinking skills. Pathetic.

  • How wonderful it would be to have someone who loves this country, loves what opportunities he harnessed, and desires to keep US values and OUR best interests at heart! He is the best…he said “I am returning the power back to the people”. He kept his word and fought off the demons as long as he could and never conceded!

  • No surprise here.
    Funny how Trump got impeached over a phone call.
    13 marines did not die during this phone call.. based on this standard of impeachment, Biden should serve time on death row.

    • Not a standard of impeachment.

      • When it comes to the corrupted Dems and Rinos, there is no standards.

  • With our current president who doesn’t know the difference between a portable teleprompter and the nuclear launch codes in the presidential suitcase, little wonder the majority of voters would go for Trump today. Biden has been in politics for over 50 years, and all all he has to show for it is a huge case of dementia. In 20 years, people will wonder what the voters were thinking when they elected Biden. Just pathetic!

  • He never lost. The election was run like a banana republic and Dominion stole the election for the Dems. Anyone who can’t admit that is only making themselves look silly.

    • But there is ZERO evidence of your claim!

      • You are evidence that you have an poor functioning brain.

        The evidence is available, you just have to wake up and look.

  • What do you mean, “would win?” You mean if democrats didn’t cheat?

  • Biden would still “win.” Democrats would just have to work a lot longer to generate those “votes.”

    • All they would need to do is do press a few buttons on their DOMINION control panel. Even if it’s a 1984 landslide, Democrats will cheat themselves to a majority

  • Things are going to really hit hard when the new taxes filter down to middle class Americans.

  • Did we forget that he actually DID win the election?

    • The “Republican” media is trying to get us to forget that important fact!

  • Trump did win the election.

  • Fact is Trump won in 2020 ! Mail in voting, Rank voting, The hackable voting dominion software is not trust worthy.

  • Can’t fix stupid. Voters should only be tax payers and adults.

  • why are you censoring me?

    • Because everyone is obviously out to get you, Cheri!

      • Because Suzanne is actually Satan, Cheri. The Landmine said so.

    • She’s not, it just feels that way. There’s a comment approval system and while it looks to us as if the comment posted immediately, it really doesn’t. If you check back later on a fresh page you’ll most likely see your comments.

  • Yeah that’s pretty safe to say. He almost won last time. His poll numbers were pretty low after pelosi and Schumer did their little song and dance with the impeachments, but since then it’s been determined that the whole Russia collusion thing was a hoax and people are being indicted for being involved in that Hillary. Just wishful thinking there Hillary, don’t kill me in a park or anything like that. But Biden has totally flubbed up his presidency so that makes it easy.

    • It is funny how you fossils still put trust in polls. Polls are created to set a narritive, to get people thinking a certain way. A lot of poll samplings onpy collect a few thousand people. Certainly not indicative of an entire population.

      • When all else fails, call somebody a name.

  • Trump won the 2020 election, bigly. Biden got 20 million people to vote for him 4 times each.

  • Trump “did” win in the 2020 election! The two AK Senators, the gutless and spineless, sanctioned the stolen election. AND(!!!), he’d win again today, especially now that folks realize the disaster the Biden Administration is. Unfortunately, we have 3+ years remaining as well as another decade or two cleaning up the mess of this current Administration.
    So, go find a Biden supporter and thank them personally!

  • “Biden won the popular vote” only if you allow all the illegal votes, duplicate votes, dead people voting, poll workers running the same ballot for Biden through the machine 100s of times, erasure of votes for Trump, etc., etc. Bad reporting here. I come here because you usually speak truth. Disappointing

    • The “Republicans” want us to ignore the obvious cheating because they want us to give an electoral mandate to their Democrat-aligned candidates (see Dan Sullivan)

    • That’s all fluff Shirley. There is NO evidence for what you say.

      • All by design Evan. When the courts are corrupted along with the political system, facts will be what they want them to be with the support of the MSM propaganda, keeping surface feeders like yourself happy with lies that you believe are the truth.

  • Why can’t you just admit that Trump won? “Buyer’s Remorse” seems to indicate that you think the majority of people elected Biden. They did not. I’m sure next year you will be writing stories about “Buyer’s Remorse” about voting for proposition 2.

    Unless we get a full forensic audit of all 50 states, we will never have a free election and fair election. Support David Eastman’s efforts to get a forensic audit in Alaska.

  • Voters already favored Trump in the 2020 election through the electoral college that is used to seat presidents, without the massive fraud factor he likely won the popular vote as well.
    “Buyer’s remorse” is not applicable to the hundreds of thousands of fraudulently printed ballots and double counts by corrupted election officials used by both the Democrat political machine and many GOP controlled jurisdictions to maintain RINO and self identified Republicans who are simply Wall Street political prostitutes in power.
    If there were such a thing going forward as free and legitimate elections and it were held today, Trump would win on the scale of Reagan’s 2nd term.
    Direct election control and the manipulative use of a pandemic of government fear mongering and illegal/immoral regulation using a flu virus variant as the excuse will never be relinquished.

  • Face reality people. Trump lost. He lost because the left out hustled the GOP, and because white women thought he was mean.

    The GOP didn’t contest electoral irregularities until after the fact. They should have done so months in advance. There was no Kelly Ann Conway to make him be disciplined in messaging. No Steve Bannon to do the dirty infighting.

    Denying this won’t change a damn thing, and won’t do a damn thing towards winning the mid terms.

    Focus, or face the consequences

    • That mask of yours must cover your eyes to see what is so obvious:

      Candidate Joe Biden was so effective at animating voters in 2020 that he received a record number of votes, more than 15 million more than Barack Obama received in his re-election of 2012. Amazingly, he managed to secure victory while also losing in almost every bellwether county across the country. No presidential candidate has been capable of such electoral jujitsu until now.

      While Biden underperformed Hillary Clinton’s 2016 totals in every urban county in the United States, he outperformed her in the metropolitan areas of Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. Even more surprising, the former VP put up a record haul of votes, despite Democrats’ general failures in local House and state legislative seats across the nation.

      He accomplished all this after receiving a record low share of the primary vote compared to his Republican opponent heading into the general election. Clearly, these are tremendous and unexpected achievements that would normally receive sophisticated analysis from the journalist class but have somehow gone mostly unmentioned during the celebrations at news studios in New York City and Washington, D.C.

      The massive national political realignment now taking place may be one source of these surprising upsets. Yet still, to have pulled so many rabbits out of his hat like this, nobody can deny that Biden is a first-rate campaigner and politician, the likes of which America has never before seen. Let’s break down just how unique his political voodoo has been in 2020.

      1. 80 Million Votes
      Holy moly! A lot of Americans turned out for a Washington politician who’s been in office for nearly 50 years. Consider this: no incumbent president in nearly a century and a half has gained votes in a re-election campaign and still lost.

      President Trump gained more than ten million votes since his 2016 victory, but Biden’s appeal was so substantial that it overcame President Trump’s record support among minority voters. Biden also shattered Barack Obama’s own popular vote totals, really calling into question whether it was not perhaps Biden who pulled Obama across the finish lines in 2008 and 2012.

      Proving how sharp his political instincts are, the former VP managed to gather a record number of votes while consistently trailing President Trump in measures of voter enthusiasm. Biden was so savvy that he motivated voters unenthusiastic about his campaign to vote for him in record numbers.

      2. Winning Despite Losing Most Bellwether Counties
      Biden became the first president in 60 years to lose the states of Ohio and Florida on his way to election. For a century, these states have consistently predicted the national outcome, and they have been considered roughly representative of the American melting pot as a whole. Despite national polling giving Biden a lead in both states, he lost Ohio by eight points and Florida by more than three.

      For Biden to lose these key bellwethers by notable margins and still win the national election is newsworthy. Not since the Mafia allegedly aided John F. Kennedy in winning Illinois over Richard Nixon in 1960 has an American president pulled off this neat trick.

      Even more unbelievably, Biden is on his way to winning the White House after having lost almost every historic bellwether county across the country. The Wall Street Journal and The Epoch Times independently analyzed the results of 19 counties around the United States that have nearly perfect presidential voting records over the last 40 years. President Trump won every single bellwether county, except Clallam County in Washington.

      Whereas the former VP picked up Clallam by about three points, President Trump’s margin of victory in the other 18 counties averaged over 16 points. In a larger list of 58 bellwether counties that have correctly picked the president since 2000, Trump won 51 of them by an average of 15 points, while the other seven went to Biden by around four points. Bellwether counties overwhelmingly chose President Trump, but Biden found a path to victory anyway.

      4. Biden Won Despite Democrat Losses Everywhere Else
      Randy DeSoto noted in The Western Journal that “Donald Trump was pretty much the only incumbent president in U.S. history to lose his re-election while his own party gained seats in the House of Representatives.” Now that’s a Biden miracle!

      In 2020, The Cook Political Report and The New York Times rated 27 House seats as toss-ups going into Election Day. Right now, Republicans appear to have won all 27. Democrats failed to flip a single state house chamber, while Republicans flipped both the House and Senate in New Hampshire and expanded their dominance of state legislatures across the country.

      5. Biden Overcame Trump’s Commanding Primary Vote
      In the past, primary vote totals have been remarkably accurate in predicting general election winners. Political analyst David Chapman highlighted three historical facts before the election.

      First, no incumbent who has received 75 percent of the total primary vote has lost re-election. Second, President Trump received 94 percent of the primary vote, which is the fourth highest of all time (higher than Dwight Eisenhower, Nixon, Clinton, or Obama). In fact, Trump is only one of five incumbents since 1912 to receive more than 90 percent of the primary vote.

      Third, Trump set a record for most primary votes received by an incumbent when more than 18 million people turned out for him in 2020 (the previous record, held by Bill Clinton, was half that number). For Biden to prevail in the general election, despite Trump’s historic support in the primaries, turns a century’s worth of prior election data on its head.

      Joe Biden achieved the impossible. It’s interesting that many more journalists aren’t pointing that out.

    • Trump did not lose, he won in a landslide. Without the voter fraud and vote flipping he might have won Oregon, and even Colorado. Republicans will NEVER WIN AGAIN u til we get rid of the nationwide fraud. Just look at Georgia if you need some evidence

      • Proof would be nice. Also refute my point instead of childish “I know you are” non answers.

        Regarding Georgia. He lost because the white women in metro Atlanta didn’t vote for him. Governor Kemp had zero legal authority to intervene. Gateway Pundit is not reality. It far right political porn. It’s no more real than letters to Penthouse.

        Regardless, until the GOP gets its act together BEFORE an election.

        I assume you are involved in GOP percent politics where you live?

    • Arizona is referring the results of the Maricopa audit to their attorney general…

    • If you are denying that the United States political machine cheated, you have know idea what you are talking about. Both Democrats and Republicans didn’t want Trump in office. Big Corporate runs our politicians and they also are the money and corruption behind the voting process. Trump was one of the few, if any, Billionaires who knew of Big Corporation’s plans and had the national notoriety to stand against it.
      .
      Trump did not lose. Big Corporations stole the election with full support and allegiance of both parties (really only one) in the political machine and courts who are payed off to stop legal fights.

  • The results of the Maricopa County forensic election audit revealed that there is a pattern to how the elections are manipulated. The machines were in fact connected to the internet. There are dual boots, meabing the machines had 2 operating systems. One that looked legit, and one that behaved much differently when activated. There were duplicate ballots. There were ballots certified that didn’t even have signatures. Just to name a few problems detected.

  • Trump won in 2020. We all know it so just admit it and stop calling Biden “President Biden” … Biden is Resident Biden.
    Every single time that bloggers and journalists mislabel Biden as “President Biden” they further the lie and become part of the problem.
    The entire 2020 election was fraudulent…none of the people in office as a result of the 2020 election can be sure that they actually won.
    Proposition 2 in Alaska probably didn’t pass either.
    We need a full forensic audit of all Alaskan races.

    • Proposition 2 was the nail in the coffin for election integrity. All vote counting is now done by Dominion computers with no way to do a hand tally (rank choice guarantees this). Republican primaries now abolished, so RINOs are guaranteed a lifetime career of corruption and deceit. Dark Money rules removed for Ballot Measures (which are almost always communist). The leftist courts won’t overturn it, and neither will the socialist legislature. Ballot box, soap box…?

  • Reality check time:
    .
    What this really means is that trump would have won with an even larger margin.
    .
    The problem is less with ChinaJoe voters (bless their hearts) as it is with the fraudulent election.

  • After what we’ve seen, who in their right mind would ever “vote” again? Not me, never again.

    • Haven’t you heard? In some miraculous way, “we’re” going to win in 2022 and then in 2024…..just a few more years…..sure, they blatantly stole the 2020 election at every level but somehow, we’re going to turn that all around! I seem to recall something about fool me once….etc., etc….I guess some people haven’t heard that one.

      • The “We” is critical. RINOs and Communists in disguise are not “We the People.” Mitch McConnell, Dan Sullivan, even Mike Dunleavy are not We the People. They throw around the word “We” to preserve a facade of democracy when They are really dictators controlling Us every step of the way. Democrats, Communists, Nazis, and RINO s are all the same “They”

    • “Trust us, we have reprogrammed the Dominion Vote Flippers. They’ll work this time, we swear! Just shut up and obey” – AmericaLast Republican Party

    • Spoken like a true fighter, I mean quitter. I know voting is so hard that you feel like you deserve a medal for your valorous actions of combative voting booth heroism.
      .
      I’ve never been in a fight that someone wasn’t trying to give themselves an advantage. Fair play is for suckers and idealists. It’s not a question of, is the other side cheating, it’s am I good enough to overcome it? When people quit, that isn’t helping.

      • Nope, we all just need to stay home on voting day sending the ultimate “F- you” that we no longer recognize the system as “legitimate” anymore. None of their laws will be followed, no more reindeer games. Its over.
        There literally trolling you now and yet you still play along. Why?

    • Censored, I feel much the same as you and it grinds my gears to particpate. But, don’t quite make up your mind yet. We may be able beat them at their own game. Though, truth be told in my opinion, balkanizing now would be the best for everyone, conservative and woke mobsters.

  • Even the deceased people who voted for Biden are sorry.

  • President Trump is a true man of GOD research him and you will be amazed at all he has accomplished. President Trump made politics look so simple because all he had to do was what was best for the citizens was done. Dominion mail in ballots very corrupt democrats and oath takers with evil intent best beware for what they have done to him and all us citizens. This is a Bible based nation and GOD is in charge believe me we all know this. Oath takers everyone of you 911 your souls are at hand.

  • An election was held in November 2020 and Trump won in a landslide IF you only count registered voters. Fraudulent mail-in ballots, cemetery residents and rigged Dominion machines aren’t legitimate voters.

    • They wouldn’t have been able to cheat him if he just would have shut his big fat mouth. It cost him votes.

  • The polls showing support for the Delaware Dummy in the 40%+ range are bogus….most of the libs who voted for The Delaware Dummy are to proud to admit their vote was foolish to any pollster. Anyone defending the DDs lack of policies and good decisions on the border, Afghanistan, taxes, and American energy…not to mention inflation…are just plain asinine and irrational.

  • Paranoia strikes deep . Into your heart it will creep. You poor souls, I hope you can receive the help you need. Two of my very best friends, whom I believed to be rock solid, have been admitted to API,pushed over the edge by the Quanon and stop the steal movements. Please take a deep breath, take the time to enjoy what the great land has to offer,and if that doesn’t work, please seek professional counseling.

    • There’s a fine line between paranoia and heightened state of awareness. Seeing the amount of corruption our politicians are capable of can drive a man insane, especially when a best friend is incapable of opening his eyes to see it.

    • Your friends crisis is also your time learn how you can be a better friend for them. Your tolerating attitude allowed them to self destruct. They had benign habits that led them up to their breakdowns, and you lacked courage telling them the truth about themselves. They are at API because of you tolerated their bad habits that would only lead to darkness and destruction.

    • Gunner, I care to think you need as much Counseling help as they do. You aren’t so all together. When a friend hangs out with a messed up friends, they are just as messed as their friend. Some friends are just better at hiding their delusions and problems.

  • News sources did man-on-the-street interviews of democrat voters just after the election. They were shown the facts regarding Hunter’s laptop and that alone was enough to make better than 17% of them say on record they wouldn’t have voted Biden, had they known.

    So if the media hadn’t colluded to hide the facts from the public, Trump would have won by better than 17%.
