A new pair of polls suggest that Donald Trump's chances of getting elected president are very thin, to say the least, with the public eyeing his potential candidacy with great suspicion.
poll released on Wednesday finds that 58% of registered voters said they would never vote for Trump, compared to only 9% who would enthusiastically vote for him, and 26% who would consider voting for him. This score was the worst out of the whole potential Republican field tested in the poll, beating out the 58% who say they would never vote for Sarah Palin and 15% who would enthusiastically back her, plus 24% who would consider it.
In addition, a new Rasmussen poll
of likely voters finds that only 15% think Trump is seriously running for president, compared to 61% who think he is just seeking publicity, and 24% who are not sure. In addition, only 28% have a favorable view of Trump, compared to 66% who view him unfavorably -- down from a 39%-53% figure in Rasmussen's polling three weeks ago.
The Quinnipiac poll was conducted from April 26-May 1, surveying 1,408 registered voters, and has a Â±2.6% margin of error. The Rasmussen poll was conducted from May 3-4, surveying 1,000 likely voters, and has a Â±3% margin of error.
