Former President Donald Trump has been telling people that he expects to be reinstated as president by August this year, and many Republicans believe it.
According to a new poll published Wednesday by Politico-Morning Consult Poll, the vast majority of Americans dismiss the idea that Trump will be reinstated as president, including 61 percent of Republicans, 84 percent of Democrats and 70 percent of independents.
But the poll found that 3 in 10 Republicans believe Trump will be made president again after it is proven President Biden cheated in the election.
Since losing last year’s presidential election, Trump has repeatedly pushed baseless claims of widespread voter fraud and suggested the election was not conducted fairly.
Polling shows a solid majority of GOP voters still supportive of Trump and his policies, with a significant amount of Republican voters hopeful he will run for president again in 2024.
The new Politico-Morning Consult Poll also found 59 percent of Republican voters polled said they wish to see Trump play a major role in the party going forward.
In another key finding, 77 of all respondents said that they believe America’s democracy is being threatened, including 82 percent of Republicans and 77 percent of Democrats.
The poll was conducted June 4-7 among 1,990 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.
