Joe Biden's approval ratings may have slipped, but that doesn't mean voters are nostalgic for Donald Trump.

[Trump's] favorability ratings are well underwater, and key voter groups that propelled him to the White House have soured on him. Twice as many people say they'd be less likely to vote for a congressional candidate endorsed by him, compared to those who say they'd be more likely to vote for the down-ticket contenders. In a hypothetical rematch in 2024, he'd lose to his 2020 opponent.

The numbers are not looking good right now for Donald Trump, whose iron grip over the Republican Party appears to be weakening.

A January [27th] Marquette poll, in fact, found that Biden would best Trump, 53% to 43%, in a hypothetical 2024 rematch.

In recent weeks, high-profile Republicans have taken on Trump, unusual behavior from party members who once feared the wrath of a Republican president who prized personal loyalty to him and punished those who didn't provide it.

MILWAUKEE -- Marquette Law School Poll survey of adults nationwide finds that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former President Donald Trump run equally well against Democratic President Joe Biden in hypothetical 2024 matchups, although Biden leads both Republicans.

In a head-to-head matchup, DeSantis is supported by 33%, while Biden is supported by 41%. A substantial 18% say they would support someone else, and 8% say they would not vote. In a Trump versus Biden rematch, Trump receives 33% to Biden's 43%, with 16% preferring someone else and 6% saying they would not vote.

As politicians often remind us when considering not-so-great approval polls, they are running against the alternative, not the Almighty.

    Keep a good thought, there, Curt.

    Imagine how much more disaster will befall America, heck, the world through Joe. Just ask the good people of Afghanistan, now Ukraine, and Joe's got more than 2 1/2 years until the 024 election.

    Your poll is pre Ukraine. It's not even a poll of Registered voters.

    And, the truth is, there's no way to prevent Trump from winning the early 024 GOP caucuses and primaries. And, much as the SwampGOPs were appalled in 016, the party insiders will be impotent to stop the Trump wave in 024.

    Actually, these numbers ain't that bad for Trump. He won't have to win a majority of the popular vote to win the election, especially with the new election integrity laws in place.

    Four more years.

    And just like that, my exposure level to your blitheringly pig-ignorant, wilful idiocy has surpassed tolerable levels.

    Afghanistan is repeating itself in Ukraine Donna. How many times, do you imagine, voters want to repeat that?

    A couple of days ago, you were castigating Biden for not taking on Russia directly when their army was amassing at the border.

    Today you're complaining about Biden getting us into another Afghanistan when he hasn't even sent American soldiers into Ukraine.

    I'm confused about your position. From what I can tell, it's whatever Biden didn't do.

    I think you missed my point.

    Well then why don't you clarify it?
