Trump did better while in office than most people expected, survey finds

Published on

A recent NBC News survey reveals that as the potential 2020 presidential rematch approaches, more voters are viewing former President Trump’s performance in office more favorably than they originally anticipated. The survey, which was released on Friday, shows that 40% of voters think Trump’s presidency exceeded their expectations, while 31% felt it met expectations, and 29% believed it fell short.

In contrast, opinions on President Biden’s tenure are less favorable. Only 14% of those surveyed believe his presidency has outperformed expectations, 44% say it has met expectations, and 42% feel it has been worse than expected.

Comparatively, Trump had received lower ratings in a similar 2018 survey conducted during his presidency. The current findings indicate Biden is facing challenges in rallying support within his own party—52% of Democratic voters think his administration is performing as expected, 30% view it more favorably than anticipated, and 18% are disappointed.

Trump’s support seems more robust, particularly among Republicans, with 80% stating his presidency was better than expected and only 6% expressing disappointment. Independent voters also show a preference for Trump over Biden, with 52% disappointed by Biden’s performance compared to 18% for Trump.

These survey results come at a challenging time for Biden, who holds a 53.9% unfavorability rating, compared to a 43.3% favorability rating, according to The Hill/Decision Desk HQ. The NBC News poll, which included 1,000 registered voters and has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points, was conducted from January 26 to 30.
