Nearly six in 10 Americans said Donald Trump's election bid is a bad thing, while just 34 percent are in favor of his decision, according to a new poll conducted by Quinnipiac University.
The poll found nearly 55 percent of Americans think Trump has had a negative impact on the Republican party, while 37 percent think he has had a mainly positive impact.
“An underwhelming welcome back to the political battlefield for Donald Trump comes with a mixed message,” said Tim Malloy, a polling analyst for the university.
The former president’s numbers among Democrats were unsurprisingly poor, with 88 percent saying that his campaign launch was concerning. At least 58 percent of independent voters said his election bid was a bad thing, with nearly 27 percent of Republicans agreeing with the statement.
Only 35 percent consider themselves supporters of Trump’s Maga movement, while 60 percent do not consider themselves supporters, the poll found. Meanwhile, 60 percent of Republicans said they would like Florida governor Ron DeSantis to run for president, while roughly a quarter of those polled said they didn’t.
