An Associated Press poll reports that former President Trump’s popularity is increasing among conservatives, but then turns right around and asserts that 64% of Americans “definitely” or “probably” would not support him for president in 2024.

This is a glaring reason why most Americans no longer support polls. They make no logical sense anymore.
The new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll came out on Wednesday. It tried to have it both ways by showing that Trump is increasing his grip on the Republican Party while distancing a majority of the American electorate.
It found that 63% of Republican voters “now say they want the former president to run again,” according to the Associated Press. That’s up from the same poll last April, which showed 55% of Republican voters wanted to see Trump on the party’s ticket in 2024.
“Seven in 10 Republicans now have a favorable opinion of Trump, an uptick from the 60% who said so two months ago,” the AP stated, noting Trump’s increasing popularity in the GOP despite or because of more indictments having been filed against him.
Here come the fake polls. According to the AP, 64% of Americans won’t vote for Donald Trump. How can this be accurate? Less than a month ago, Trump had a massive rally in Erie, Pennsylvania, an area known for having a sizeable independent voter population. pic.twitter.com/wVqDSlXiFU

Trump is by far and away leading the pack for the GOP nomination in 2024. But the Associated Press is going out of its way to claim that he’s despised by the general electorate.
“But in a crucial warning sign for the former president and his supporters, Trump faces glaring vulnerabilities heading into a general election, with many Americans strongly dug in against him,” Associated Press reporters Jill Colvin and Linley Sanders contended.
The poll went on to find that in a general election, 74% of Republicans said they would support Trump in 2024. But, 53% of Americans said they “definitely” would not support him and another 11% said they “probably” would not support him according to the leftist media outlet.
Unsurprisingly, the poll asked the same questions about President Biden and got better results. Fifty-four percent of respondents said they would not support Biden, with 43% saying “they would definitely not support him in a general election, with another 11% saying they probably wouldn’t.” The Associated Press did admit the poll showed Biden was very vulnerable.
I don’t trust any poll.
The only one that counts is the one on Election Day.

With almost all Democrats playing the part of lemmings who will blindly follow Biden off a cliff, the Associated Press spewed what many will see as sheer propaganda.
The poll also asked respondents whether or not they believed Biden to be a legitimately elected president. The undoubtedly skewed survey claims that seventy percent of all Americans who participated agreed, with 98% of Democrats agreeing, but only 41% of Republicans saying Biden was a legitimate president.
Then the poll moved on to Trump’s most recent federal indictment. Fifty-three percent of Americans said they “approve of the Justice Department indicting Trump in the federal case that he worked to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. As with most opinions concerning Trump, there are large partisan differences. Only 16% of Republicans approve of the Justice Department’s indictment, compared to 85% of Democrats.”
The Associated Press stated that the poll was conducted nationally between August 10th and 14th among 1,165 adults using online and telephone interviews. The poll carries a 3.8% margin of error.
The poll was mocked all over the place:
64% of polls are wrong.
