More people see Trump’s presidency as a success than Biden’s: Poll

Former President Trump received higher ratings than President Biden regarding Americans’ perceptions of their presidencies, according to a new poll.

In a poll from CNN and SSRS, published Thursday, 55 percent of surveyed Americans said they now see Trump’s presidency as a success, while only 39 percent said they think the same of Biden’s presidency.

About 44 percent of those polled said Trump’s presidency was a failure, while about 61 percent said the same about Biden. Fewer people find Trump’s presidency a failure now than they did when he left office in January 2021, when 55 percent said the same, pollsters noted.

Biden’s failure rating, however, is higher than in January 2022, when 57 percent of surveyed Americans called the first year of his administration a failure.

The same poll found Trump is also leading Biden by 6 points in a head-to-head match-up, garnering about 49 percent of the vote to Biden’s 43 percent.

The findings come nearly six months before the November election, in which Trump and Biden are their respective parties’ presumptive nominees.

Biden has faced a series of recent polls showing low approval ratings. Last week, an analysis by Gallup found his rating is lower than any other president in recent history at the same point in their time in the White House.

The president averaged 38.7 percent job approval in his 13th quarter in office, which ran from Jan. 20 to April 19.

In the same quarter, Trump had a 46.8 percent approval rating average; former President Obama’s was 45.9 percent, and former President George W. Bush’s was 51 percent, Gallup found.

The Hill reached out to the White House and Trump campaign for comment.

The CNN poll was conducted by SSRS from April 18-23 among a random national sample of 1,212 adults, including 967 registered voters. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
