Inside the Ring Road: Donald Trump’s Iowa blockbuster ratings

Author: | Posted in USA No comments

In four days, the ex-President Donald Trump Came to Iowa for one of his daring rallies with all the trimmings. Judging by some local poll numbers, he’ll be expecting a very appreciative audience.

“Out of the daily limelight and openly flirting with another White House proposal, former President Donald Trump will return to Iowa on Saturday with a better degree of positivity than he saw while he was president,” said the Des Moines Register, which conducted the poll.

“The most recent Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll shows that 53% of Iowa have a positive view of the former Republican president and 45% have a negative view – the best-ever performance on either metric in the Iowa Poll. “The other 2% are not sure what they think about Trump,” he said.

“The numbers come as Trump begins to re-engage with the state, which is expected to kick off the 2024 presidential nomination process for Republicans. And they show positive emotions that don’t subside in his absence,” she said.

The Iowa Survey of 805 US adults was conducted September 12-15 and was released Monday.

“At a time when Iowans’ positive sentiment towards Trump has reached new heights, positive sentiment towards Trump’s 2020 and potentially 2024 election rival Joe Biden has reached new lows. Thirty-seven percent of Iowa people have positive feelings towards the president and 61 percent have negative feelings, making it his worst score in the seven Iowa Polls dating back to 2012.”

FOR THE GLOSSARY

“Independent departures.”

This is a useful phrase defined by Reuters that may soon become popular.

“Something unexpected is happening at US military bases hosting Afghan evacuees: Hundreds of people left before they received relocation services to the US,” two sources familiar with the data told Reuters.

“The number of ‘independent departures’ exceeding 700 and could be higher was not previously reported. “But this phenomenon raises alarm among immigration advocates, who are concerned about the risks for Afghans who are now abandoning an open-ended, complex and all-voluntary resettlement process.”

DIP AND SLIP CONTINUES

“Low” seems to be the current operational term when it comes to measuring public approval ratings of the following. President Biden recently. These ratings also fell, fell and fell, according to various news outlets.

NBC News, ABC News/Washington Post, National Public Radio, PBS, Morning Consult, Ipsos, IBD/Tipp, YouGov, Rasmussen Reports, Quinnipiac University, and St. Polls conducted by Anselm College have found Mr Biden more unpopular than popular reviews. At this point.

The Associated Press presented its latest survey measuring public sentiment towards the president.

“Biden’s approval has plummeted after a series of crises,” the AP said, noting that 50% of US adults approve of the president — falling to 54% in August and 59% in July.

Approval among Democrats has dropped from 92% to 85% since July, while approval among independents jumped from 62% to 38%. Only 11% of Republicans approve of Mr. Biden.

“Confirmation decreased somewhat among both white Americans (49% to 42%) and Black Americans (86% to 64%),” the AP said.

In addition, 34% of respondents now approve of Mr. Biden’s handling of Afghanistan’s withdrawal, while 34% say the country is heading in the “right direction”.

The AP-NORC survey of 1,099 adults was conducted September 23-27.

ANDREW YANG’S THIRD PERSON

Andrew Yang He says he’s done with the Democratic Party and is eager to find an alternative. The former president and New York mayoral candidate has announced that he is officially leaving the Democratic Party and is ready for something new.

“Today I changed my voting record from ‘Democrat’ to ‘independent’. Mr. Yang wrote in a long personal blog post on Monday.

He explored his personal political history and past support for high-profile Democrats such as former Presidents. Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. The article revealed that Mr. Yang is friends with local Democratic heavyweights as well as Democrat politicians such as the following. Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg and Beto O’Rourke.

“Again, I have dozens of friends and confidants who have settled into the Democratic Party at this point. I’ve been a Democrat my entire adult life. Still, I’m sure it’s not the right thing to be a Democrat anymore,” said Mr. Yang.

“Leaving the Democratic Party feels like the right thing to do because I believe I can make a greater impact this way. Am I right? Let’s find out. Together,” Mr. Yang then concluded.

His new book, “Forward: Notes on the Future of Our Democracy,” arrives Tuesday.

Publisher Penguin Random House described it as a “vigorous and bold plan to move beyond the ‘age of corporate failure’ by making our outdated political and economic systems resilient to the challenges of the twenty-first century.”

So will we see another presidential race, this time independent of Mr. Yang?

“Third-party presidential elections often don’t translate well to actual votes, so it’s unlikely we’ll see it on the national stage in 2024, but the possibility cannot be completely ruled out,” he says. Nate Ashworthis the founder and editor-in-chief of Election Central, a political news website.
