He IS losing support nationalally AND among Republicans….
Donald Trump’s legal trouble’s pile up against him …..
(I have pointed this out for the past several weeks as Biden does better and Trump drops in polling…)
Some of us REALLY believe the man just isn’t getting his first and only government job again….
This is just the beginning…..
One poll below has Vivek Ramaswamy and DeSantis coming off good from the first debate…
The second poll linked below has HALF of those polled wanting the ex-President TO SUSPEND HIS CAMPAIGN…..
A new Emerson College Polling survey of U.S. voters following the August Republican Primary debate finds half of Republican Primary voters (50%) plan to vote for Donald Trump, the lowest support to date for the former President in Emerson national polls. Trump’s support has dropped by six percentage points since last week’s pre-debate national poll….
“While Trump saw a slight dip in support, the question from this poll is whether this is a blip for Trump or if the other Republican candidates will be able to rally enough support to be competitive for the caucus and primary season,” Spencer Kimball, Executive Director of Emerson College Polling said.
“Different candidates have been able to pull varying demographic support from the Trump base, for example Mike Pence who saw an overall four-point bump in voter support was able to increase his support in the Midwest from 4% to 13% of the vote, while Trump saw his Midwest support drop from 54% to 42% after the debate,” Kimball said. “Nikki Haley’s support increased from about 2% to 9% among voters over 50 while Trump’s support dropped within this age group from about 56% to 49% after the debate.”
Overall, 57% of Republican Primary voters say they will definitely vote for the candidate they selected, a five point decrease from last week. Forty-three percent say there is a chance they could change their mind and vote for someone else.
“There appears to be a softening of support for Trump since last week’s survey, where 82% of Trump voters said they would definitely support him, compared to 71% after the debate. DeSantis’s support also softened from 32% who would definitely support to 25%, while Ramaswamy support remained consistent from 47% to 45%,” Kimball said.
Debate Reaction: Plurality of Republican Primary Voters Think Ramaswamy Won Debate But Plurality Would Vote for DeSantis
A plurality of Republican Primary voters, 27%, think Ramaswamy won the debate, while 21% think DeSantis won, 12% think Pence won, and 11% think Haley won. Twenty-two percent of Republican Primary voters think no candidate won the debate.
- A plurality (31%) of voters who have heard, seen, or read about the Republican Presidential debate think none of the candidates won. Eighteen percent think Vivek Ramaswamy won the debate, followed by Ron DeSantis at 16%, Nikki Haley at 14%, Mike Pence at 11%, and Chris Christie at 6%…..
The most recent ABC News/Ipsos poll, conducted Aug. 15-17, showed some problems for former President Donald Trump in terms of public opinion on his mounting criminal charges amid his comeback bid for the White House.
The poll, released after his fourth indictment, over efforts to reverse his 2020 loss in Georgia, shows that he’s not getting the post-indictment bounce with Americans that he’s been touting on the campaign trail.
“Any time they file an indictment, we go way up in the polls,” Trump boasted during a Republican Party dinner in Montgomery, Alabama, earlier this month. “We need one more indictment to close out this election. One more indictment, and this election is closed out.”
But the ABC News/Ipsos survey — which follows three other polls this year in the wake of Trump’s charges in three other indictments, all of which he denies — suggest that while Republicans are still largely supporting him, he faces issues with the broader public….
