Trump's problem is that 55%+ of the country doesn't like him. The question is what percentage of that will show up to vote against him.

    Most democrats are voting against Trump not because they love Biden. Which is perfectly fine since the point is to get Trump out no matter what. If Biden is elected then in 2024 Dems can nominate someone more to the left than Biden. Republicans will likely continue to nominate far right candidates that will appease the base but turn off the majority of the country.
    40% seems high IMO.

    I think there are people that will vote Trump no matter what, more so because they don't like the other option, but I don't think they would be part of Trump's base that support him like many of Trump's base do.


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    According to 538's approval tracker, Trump's approval rating has never dipped below 36%, which was Charlottesville. He's also hasn't been under 40% approval since the beginning of 2018, except brief periods where it would drop a couple tenths of a percent under before recovering.

    people can approve of Trump or his job performance without being in his base.

    what would be the definition of a base? people that are supportive and will vote for that person no matter what? even some that approve or support doesn't mean they are guaranteed to vote that way like I think "base" would suggest.

    hard to have a good opinion on what percent the base is without really knowing/caring what base even means.
