3 in 10 Republicans believe Trump will be reinstated as president: poll
Approximately 3 in 10 Republicans say in a new poll they believe former President Trump will be reinstated this year.
The Politico-Morning Consult Poll published on Wednesday found the vast majority of Americans dismiss the idea that Trump will be reinstated as president, including 61 percent of Republicans. Twenty-nine percent of GOP respondents, however, said they believe Trump will be made president again.
More than 8 in 10 Democrats — 84 percent — and 70 percent of independents also dismiss the notion that Trump will be made president after it is proven President Biden cheated in the election.
New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman reported last week Trump has been pressuring conservative media to legitimize his conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election being "rigged" against him.
The former president has also been telling people in his orbit he expects to be reinstated by August of this year.
“And none of that is possible. But this is the kind of thing that he is trying to flush into the conservative media ecosystem,” Haberman said during an appearance on CNN. “And I expect it to get more intense the more he is under investigation by the Manhattan district attorney and the state attorney general in New York and the threat of indictment over the coming months.”
I'm glad to hear this number is somewhat low. While still not ideal, it's something.
