Good times at Mar-a-Lago: Donald Trump is getting more popular by the day

Joe Biden’s presidency appears to be the best thing that’s ever happened to El Hombre Naranja.

Trump is now the most popular politician in the United States by a wide margin.

Since December, his net favorability rating has gained 5 percentage points:

In fact, Trump is creeping towards a net positive favorability rating - which he HAS never had, not even in the very short-lived honeymoon after his 2016 inauguration.

With these numbers, why wouldn’t he plan on running in 2024?

More interestingly, why wouldn’t he keep claiming the 2020 election was stolen? He appears to have the best of both worlds in doing so: his base hears THE 2020 ELECTION WAS STOLEN, but his base-adjacent, the folks who voted for Biden but now regret doing so, hears LOOK AT WHAT’S HAPPENED SINCE I LOST, DONCHA WISH YOUR BOYFRIEND WAS HOT LIKE ME?

That sound you hear is CNN+ exploding.

Oh, wait.
