Democrats are in for a surprise…
In a survey of 1,000 U.S. voters conducted on January 4th and 5th, conducted by Rasmussen Reports, a majority of voters still have a favorable impression of former President Donald Trump.
The survey reported that a total of 52% of respondents held a favorable impression of Trump, which included 33% with a “very favorable” view of the former President.
In contrast, 47% of voters held an unfavorable opinion of Trump. This figure includes 38% who had a very unfavorable impression.
Rasmussen continued their reporting by saying these recent findings reflect Trump’s final approval ratings as President in January 2021.
The survey also revealed that opinions of Trump differed according to political affiliation, as 63% of Republican voters had a very favorable impression, compared to 68% of Democrats who had a very unfavorable impression of the former President.
Of voters who weren’t affiliated with either of the major parties, 37% had an unfavorable view of the former President, while 24% had a very favorable view.
Democrat voters also were most likely to believe that Trump supporters were racist, as the majority (52%) polled believed most Trump supporters are racist. This opinion was only shared by 26% of unaffiliated voters and 12% of Republican voters. Then of those who held the view that Trump supporters are racist, 65% held a favorable view of the Black Live Matter movement.
However, Trump still had a higher favorability rating than BLM, which only had a total of 46% favorable views and a total of 49% who held an unfavorable view of BLM.
Democrats were the most likely to have a favorable view of BLM, as 75% of Democrats viewed the movement favorably. This was followed by unaffiliated voters, of which 43% shared the same opinion, and finally Republicans, who only 19% viewed the movement favorably.
