August 21, 2023

Former President Donald Trump’s popularity is plunging as his legal troubles mount. Just 35% of Americans have a favorable view of Trump compared to 62% who view him unfavorably, according to an Associated Press-NORC poll released Wednesday. The survey, which was conducted from last Friday to Monday, also found that 53% of all voters say they definitely wouldn’t vote for Trump for president in 2024. The survey reveals a stark divide between Democrats and independent voters on the one hand and Republicans on the other. Seven in 10 Republicans view the former president favorably, and about 60% say they are happy he’s making a return run for the White House.
