(DCWatchdog.com) – Just as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis dominates the news by flying 50 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard and sees his poll numbers rising, former President Donald Trump learns he is dropping in the polls.
As The Hill notes in “Trump’s favorability rating drops to new low: poll”:
“Former President Trump’s favorability rating has dropped to a new low after slowly trickling down over the past few months.
“A new NBC News poll released Sunday found that 34 percent of registered voters said they have a positive view of Trump, while 54 percent say they have a negative view of him. Trump’s favorability rating was at its lowest in April 2021, when his rating fell to 32 percent in the same NBC poll.” [emphasis added]
And the same poll had more bad news for the former president.
“Pollsters also questioned voters about their views on the different investigations against Trump, specifically asking whether the various investigations should stop or continue. The poll found that 56 percent of voters believe the investigations should continue, while 41 percent say they should stop.
“The poll comes amid an FBI investigation into Trump and the documents he was holding at Mar-a-Lago. The government recovered thousands of government documents from the Florida property since Trump left office, including more than 300 documents with various classified markings.” [emphasis added]
And, it is not only DeSantis gaining ground on Trump from within his own party. The poll also found that from the opposite side of the political aisle, President Joe Biden’s polling numbers are rising with the congressional midterms just weeks away.
