In a recent survey conducted by Ipsos for ABC News, former US President Donald Trump emerged as the dominant force within the Republican Party, securing a remarkable 72 percent support. This surge in popularity puts him ahead of his party rivals in the race for the nomination for the upcoming United States presidential election.

These are Trump's best results so far and it seems that the elections will never be more uncertain. At the same time, the survey reveals a contrasting narrative for incumbent President Joseph Biden, as his approval rating hits a 15-year low, signaling a potential shift in the American political landscape.

However, do not be fooled by this, because these are the results of a private journalist's investigation, but they certainly maintain the current situation on the political scene to some extent. Trump's command support The survey underscores Trump's overwhelming support within the Republican Party, with 72 percent of Republicans expressing satisfaction with him as a candidate.

This marks a consistency in his popularity, as reflected in similar results from a survey conducted in May. Then Trump also had a large majority, but not to the same extent as now. The current research is probably a reflection of the pre-election campaign, which has begun in earnest, although there is still a long time before the election.

"Overall, 72 percent of Republican adults would be satisfied with Trump as a candidate, similar to 75 percent in May, and 61 percent would be satisfied with Ron DeSantis. Others have lower results, Nikki Haley up to 48 percent, Vivek Ramaswamy 44 percent, Chris Christie (who stepped down on Wednesday) 23 percent and Asa Hutchinson 17 percent," according to the results of the poll.

Trump's leadership qualities, perceived electability and suitability are key factors driving his support. Moreover, a majority (54 percent) consider him the most qualified candidate within the party, while an impressive 68 percent believe he has the best chance of winning the presidential election in November.

Research has begun in earnest, and there will be more in the coming period, and the elections in the USA are attracting the attention of the whole world because they can change the global political scene. The world itself has sided with a candidate depending on their political and security situation.

Beyond these metrics, Trump also maintains an edge over his Republican rivals in terms of empathy and shared values. Even among independent Republicans, Trump is gaining significant support, boosting his appeal across traditional party lines.

Positive perception across the GOP The survey finds widespread favorable opinion of Trump among Republicans and GOP members, with seven in 10 overall expressing approval of the former president.

These findings underscore the depth of Trump's influence within the party, showing a level of popularity and influence that surpasses that of other potential Republican candidates. Many call him a populist because of his patriotic speeches and incredible statements, but most of his party colleagues consider him the greatest patriot of all Republican candidates.

A really comprehensive survey that gives us an insight into various things that are happening on the political scene as well as in the Republican Party. Dissatisfaction with Biden In contrast, the survey points to a decline in support for President Joseph Biden, particularly within his own party.

"Only" 57 percent of Democratic Party members and Democratic-leaning voters express satisfaction with Biden as their party's candidate. The research confirmed the decline in popularity of the current president, although he still has the majority in terms of support in his party.

Researchers attribute this decline to Biden's overall poor approval ratings and perceived inadequacies in handling economic and immigration issues. Of course, there is great dissatisfaction due to the war in the Gaza Strip, but the main reason is a bad economic strategy.

Biden's approval rating falls to a new low According to an ABC poll, President Biden faces a disapproval rating of 58 percent, and his overall approval rating has fallen to 33 percent.

This puts Biden in a challenging position, as his approval rating is now worse than Trump's lowest during his presidency (36 percent) and the lowest for any US president since George W. Bush in 2006-2008. This information hints at an exciting year and perhaps the most uncertain elections in the last few decades.

Both Trump and Biden receive equally negative personal ratings, with only 35 percent of Americans polled expressing a favorable view of Trump and only 33 percent having a favorable opinion of Biden. This significant drop in Biden's popularity is especially noteworthy when compared to the 50 percent support he enjoyed before the 2020 election.

Trump did not have much support before the election either, so his drop in popularity and influence is relatively small. Donald Trump's resurgence in the Republican Party signals strong support, positioning him as a strong contender for the party's nomination in the upcoming presidential election.

It can now be said and confirmed, although we will wait for the official nomination, which will be just a formality. On the other hand, President Biden is facing a challenging period with declining approval ratings, especially within his own party, underscoring the need for a strategic shift to address the concerns of the American electorate.

A very compact and detailed survey, although we have to say that we felt a slight bias towards Donald Trump in the survey.
