Trump More Popular with U.S. Voters than Biden, New Poll Reveals
Trump comes out on top for popularity with likely voters
Donald Trump is more popular with American voters than Democrat Joe Biden; the Rasmussen poll released on Friday has revealed.
Those who have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of Biden amounted to 51 percent, compared to 52 percent of voters having a favorable opinion of Trump.
More people have an unfavorable view of Biden (48 percent) than Trump (46 percent).
But former President Barrack Obama is more popular with voters than Trump and Biden.
Fifty-five percent of voters view Obama favorably, while 6 percent have a very unfavorable opinion of the former president.
The poll report said:
“Comparing voter opinions of Biden and his two predecessors across demographic categories, the current president, suffers from more intense disapproval by Republicans, and doesn’t have the kind of strong support from black voters that benefitted Obama."
