Former President Trump is facing 91 felony counts in four criminal cases. He was impeached twice and left office under disgraceful circumstances after his supporters violently stormed the Capitol, egged on by his claims of a stolen election. Many of his former top advisers have turned into ardent critics.

And yet, several polls released in the past few weeks show him leading President Biden in battleground states and nationally in a hypothetical rematch in 2024.

“Some of these polls are really in a way approval ratings of President Biden, which we know are not great,” Grant Reeher, director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute, tells The Hill. “So it’s not so much people saying I’d rather have Donald Trump than Joe Biden, it’s people saying I’m not happy with where the country is going, and I want an alternative.”

Reeher was also interviewed for The Hill article, “Trump signals he’s out for revenge in second term.” 

“I think that as far as the question of is he just blowing off steam or would he be intent on doing that, I think he would be intent on doing that. He demonstrated as president he would act on his grudges, so I think these threats are real,” says Reeher.
