New polls from Iowa show Trump has hit a record-high approval rating in the Buckeye State while President Biden’s numbers hit the lowest point of his presidency. The latest poll from the Des Moines Register/ Mediacom Poll gives the Republican some encouraging news in the battleground state while he hints at a third election.
According to reports from The Hill:
The poll showed that 53 percent of Iowans approve of Trump, while 45 percent disapprove and just 2 percent have no opinion.
Trump is viewed favorably by 91 percent of Iowa Republicans. Independents are more split, with 48 percent viewing him favorably and 49 percent having an unfavorable view of the former president.
The poll comes ahead of a rally Trump will hold in the Hawkeye State Saturday, marking one of his most visible appearances in the first-in-the-nation caucus state.
Several polls have shown that Trump would likely coast to the GOP nomination in three years if he ran, and a bid is expected to largely clear the field of other primary contenders. A strong showing in the Iowa caucuses would mark a substantial step in a potential 2024 campaign.
The same pollster revealed that President Biden only has a 31% approval rating in the Buckeye State after the botched Afghanistan withdrawal.
