(Republicaninformer.com)- Former President Donald Trump is enjoying a surge in popularity right during the possibility of his arrest in connection with the investigation conducted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg into his payment to Stormy Daniels in 2016.
Many claimed his persecution could have a rebound “martyr” effect.
While traditional media sites were predicting that Trump’s arrest would occur much sooner, on Saturday, Trump declared that he expected to be arrested on Tuesday.
In the midst of this scandal, the general public seems to have softened its attitude toward the former president. According to a recent study by Rasmussen, 52% of potential voters have a favorable impression of him, while 44% have a negative view of him.
According to a second study conducted by Rasmussen, President Joseph Biden fares virtually the opposite, with 46% of respondents expressing approval of him as opposed to 53% who express disapproval of him. A study by Leger360 found that just 44% of people in the United States approve of him, while 54% disapprove of him.
It looks like Trump is in a solid position to win the nomination for president of the Republican Party in 2024. In a recent study conducted by Emerson College that compared candidates who had already launched their candidacy for the Republican nomination, he received 79% of the support of Republican voters. Nikki Haley, a former ambassador to the United Nations, received 16% of the vote, while Vivek Ramaswamy, a software billionaire, received 6%.
According to Rasmussen’s findings, the former president has a significant lead over his primary opponents in places like Arizona. This is the case in all of the states.
The one state where this is not the case is Florida, where a poll conducted by Emerson shows that he is just 3% ahead of Governor Ron DeSantis, who has not yet announced his candidacy.
