Poll Finds Republicans Trust Trump On Ukraine Over On-Ground Journalists

As 2024 continues on, national media outlets have attempted to place a heightened focus on the upcoming general presidential election. Despite being months away and political lightyears from the present, both major national political parties are gearing up for the battle for control of the White House. In the Republican party, former president Donald Trump has locked up his nomination. Despite four criminal indictments being levied against the American business mogul from New York City, his support amongst likely Republican voters continues to increase, and he currently enjoys galvanized support from many conservative leaders around the nation. In the Democratic party, President Joe Biden enjoys the benefits of the incumbency and appears to have also locked up the nomination. President Biden faced only token opposition from Robert Kennedy Jr.. Kennedy Jr. has positioned himself as a moderate, attempting to appeal to the historic blue-dog working class base of the Democratic party. Unfortunately for him, much of those voters have left the party and become Republicans in recent years as the Democrats have increasingly adopted far-left progressive positions on issues across the political agenda. Kennedy is now running as an independent.

Biden himself has governed in an extremely progressive manner and has appealed to much of the party’s base. Despite this he remains vulnerable, with many Americans disapproving of his job as president. In a recent poll, some 61% disapproved of his performance in the executive branch. In a recent poll from CNN, many voters believe Biden had knowledge of his son Hunter Bidens foreign business activities. In this poll, 61% of voters are of the opinion that the president knew what was going on behind the scenes. The election is projected as a dead heat.

In recent polls, Donald Trump’s major popularity amongst GOP voters has been shown in reports that many Republican voters trust his statements about Ukraine over on-ground journalists or traditional media outlet reporting in the region.
