Trump has Unfavorable Rating among Majority of Voters

Donald Trump

Although Donald Trump has not declared whether he will be running for the presidency of the U.S., most voters have an unfavorable opinion of him, including close to one-third holding a very unfavorable view of the reality TV star and businessman, according to a new Rasmussen poll released on Monday.

While Trump, does not suffer from a lack of name recognition, unlike several potential Republican candidates, some 53% of voters have an unfavorable opinion, including 29% holding a Very Unfavorable view. Only 39% have a favorable assessment, with 10% Very Favorable.

President Obama, in a 2012 hypothetical match-up with Trump, earns support from 49% of Likely Voters nationwide, while Trump attracts the vote from 34%. Given that choice, 12% would vote for some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

Only 65% of Republicans would vote for Trump over Obama.

Among voters not connected to either major party, 48% prefer Obama, 25% Trump, and 20% would prefer some other candidate.

Regardless of who the Republican candidate is running against the president, Obama earns between 42% and 49% support.
