According to a nationwide tracking survey conducted by Morning Consult and Politico research from June 4 to 7, 29% of self-identified Republicans predict Trump will be reinstalled as President of the United States by late 2021.
“That looks to be resonating very profoundly with Republican voters,” Morning Consult senior editor Cameron Easley said on SiriusXM’s “Julie Mason Mornings” on Wednesday, June 9, adding that it was a ‘eye-popping figure.’

Trump “has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August,” according to New York Times writer Maggie Haberman. “No, that’s not how it works; it’s just exchanging knowledge,” she added.
The Washington Post verified Haberman’s allegations. They said, “Some advisers said that such comments appear to be just offhand musings,” then stating that Trump has been fascinated with election audits and has told allies that they may lead to his re-election later this year.
The poll indicated that regardless of how severe the emotion is, it has prompted that notion in distinct groups.
Trump’s reinstatement was viewed as very probable by 17% of Republicans, and somewhat probable by 12%, extremely probable by 10% of voters, while it was seen moderately probable by 9%, it seems.
Outside of Republicans, 22% of respondents who indicated they worked for the government told Morning Consult and Politico pollsters there was a very good possibility Trump will be restored.
A further 11% of government employees thought the situation was somewhat plausible. However, older voters tended to think it was less likely.
Only 11% of baby boomers believe it is very or somewhat likely, compared to 32% of millennials and 27% of Gen-Z respondents.
A total of 1,990 registered voters were polled between June 4 and 7, with a margin of error of 2%.
Despite the lack of proof of widespread election fraud, Trump has continued to fuel the so-called “big lie,” assuring supporters for months that he was robbed of a second term.
Trump extended a nod to people who embrace the notion at an appearance in North Carolina last week. ‘We’re gonna take back the White House, and sooner than you think,’ he declared.
