Donald Trump's Favorability Soars

Former President Donald Trump has a higher favorability rating than Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, according to a recent Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll.

Respondents were given a list of high profile figures across the board in politics. Trump stood at the top in terms of favorability with 46 percent.

Trump's favorability, according to the poll, is higher than every other figure featured on the list, which included President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and more.

Trump STILL On Top

"McConnell’s favorable figures are toward the bottom half of the list, garnering a 25 percent favorable rating — 21 points lower than Trump’s. Further, Trump’s unfavorable rating is 47 percent, giving him a net negative of -1. However, half, or 50 percent, have an unfavorable view of McConnell, giving him one of the highest net negative approvals on the list at -25. Only one individual on the list, Russian President Vladimir Putin, saw a higher net negative rating," reports Breitbart.

"The only high profile figures listed who came close to Trump’s favorable rating were Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Elon Musk, both of whom saw a 45 percent favorable rating," reports Breitbart. "Both have a net positive rating as well — +14 and +8, respectively."

McConnell blasted the former president, saying Trump is to blame for a lack of "candidate quality" in the midterm elections.

"Our ability to control primary outcome was quite limited in ’22 because of the support of the former president proved to be very decisive in these primaries, so my view was do the best you can with the cards you’re dealt," said McConnell.
