According to a survey released Wednesday, the 45th president would win easily if he were to face off against President Joe Biden in a second election.
Rasmussen Reports noted that while 43% of likely voters said they would cast a ballot for Trump today, just 37% said they would do so for Biden again, while 14% percent said they would choose a different candidate.
Rasmussen stated that more Biden voters than Trump voters regretted casting their ballots during the 2020 election. This is the main reason Trump won today.
According to the survey, six times as many Biden voters regretted their decision than Trump voters, a difference of 12% and 2% respectively.
“If a rematch of the 2020 election were held now, Trump would win, because only 79% of Biden voters say they would vote for him again and seven percent (7%) would switch their vote to Trump,” the survey noted.
“By comparison, 81% of Trump’s 2020 voters would vote for him again and just two percent (2%) would switch to Biden,” Rasmussen added.
Rasmussen also noted that voters who voted for a third-party candidate in November were three times more likely than those who voted for Trump (21% versus 7%), while 58% stated they would still vote to elect a third-party candidate, and 14% said that they weren’t certain.
Rasmussen also stated that nearly twice as many people who regretted their 2020 vote said they would now vote for Trump (51%), rather than Biden (26%).
Rasmussen noticed that Rasmussen surveyed more Democrats than Republicans.
The breakdown of 1,000 likely voters showed that 38% were self-avowed Democrats, 36% were Republican, and 26% chose another political affiliation.
Trump is considered the favorite to win the 2024 GOP presidential nominee, but he has not yet made his intentions known.
In recent months, he has hinted that he might like to get back in the ring. However, he has stated that he cannot yet declare his intention to follow obscure campaign finance rules.
As it stands now, if he is not declared, he will have much more discretion in spending the tens to millions of dollars he holds in his various political actions committees. He plans to use these funds to support GOP candidates for Congress to help the party retake Congress and possibly the Senate next Year.
Last month, Trump’s first press secret, Sean Spicer, stated with certainty that he believes Trump would run for the presidency again in 2024.
“He’s in,” said Spicer, author of “Radical Nation: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s Dangerous Plan for America,” which had already become an Amazon pre-sale bestseller.
Spicer’s comments come as Trump is meeting with “Cabinet Members” and top congressional Republicans at his Bedminster, N.J. golf resort, according to the Washington Examiner.
In June, he met Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), the Republican Study Committee chair, and members the caucus’s leadership for strategy discussions and other pertinent topics, with an eye towards the Democrat’s slim majority in the House and an equally-divided Senate.
“We talked for most of the time about the work that the Republican Study Committee is doing to define the agenda for the future course of the Republican Party, which is fighting for the Trump agenda,” Banks told the New York Post.
“We talked about our election integrity bill, The Save Democracy Act, which he was very supportive of and we talked about what we’ve done to define immigration moving forward,” Banks added.
