As President Donald Trump’s approval rating remains stable, an increasing amount of voters say he is “somewhat likely” to be re-elected as president, according to a survey.
Scott Rasmussen’s latest 2020 poll revealed 63 percent of American voters believe President Trump will serve a second term in the White House, which is up 17 percentage points from February.
“The president’s job approval rating has also remained stable throughout the year,” Rasmussen stated in a daily memo. “Despite that stability, the number who believe it’s likely that the president will be re-elected has grown every month.”
He added, “In August, 63 percent say President Trump is at least somewhat likely to be re-elected, up from 46 percent in February.”
In a separate memo from earlier this month, Rasmussen noted, “63% of voters nationwide now believe it is at least somewhat likely President Trump will be successful in next year’s campaign. That’s up from 60% in July, 57% in May, 54% in April, 50% in March and 46% in February.”
Rasmussen’s daily memo also showed 76 percent of Republicans are now opposed to impeaching President Trump, while 73 percent of Democrats are in favor of it.
