29 Percent of Republican Voters Think Donald Trump Could get Reinstated as President This Year

A new poll from Morning Consult/Politico found that 29 percent of Republican voters in the U.S. think Donald Trump will be reinstated as president this year.

Jun 2, 2021: Maggie Haberman says former President Donald Trump is echoing a QAnon conspiracy theory telling people that he will be reinstated as president by August.

Of the 29 percent who said they believe Trump will be back in the White House, 17 percent of voters said it was a “very likely” scenario and 12 percent said it was “somewhat likely.”

Still, a majority of Republicans don’t think it’s likely the former president will regain the Oval Office. Thirty-nine percent thought it was “not likely at all” and 22 percent said it was “not very likely.”

Overall, 72 percent of voters polled said it’s unlikely that Trump will be reinstated as commander-in-chief.

More than three-quarters of respondents, 77 percent, said they believe America’s democracy is being threatened—including 82 percent of Republicans and 77 percent of Democrats.

The survey’s findings come roughly one week after New York Times Washington correspondent Maggie Haberman reported that the former president was saying he expects to be back in the White House by the summer’s end.

“Trump has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August (no that isn’t how it works but simply sharing the information),” Haberman posted to Twitter on June 1.

Haberman’s tweet also reposted a CNN report on Trump supporters and QAnon believers anticipating a Myanmar-style coup to restore Trump’s presidential power.

Soon after, The Washington Post reported that pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell said she believed Trump should be “reinstated” this year.

Since then, several people in Trump’s orbit have poured cold water on the reports.

Lara Trump, Trump’s daughter-in-law, told Fox & Friends that there were no plans for him to be reinstated in August.

“Maybe there’s something I don’t know…but no. I think that is a lot of folks getting a little worked up about something just because maybe there wasn’t enough pushback from the Republican side,” she said. “So no, I have not heard any plans for Donald Trump to be installed in the White House in August.”

Jenna Ellis, one of Trump’s attorneys, noted on Twitter that “the Constitution has only one process for removal of a sitting president: impeachment and conviction. No, President Trump is not going to be ‘reinstated.'”

Amid the false speculation that he’ll soon be back in the White House, Trump vowed that the GOP was going to take back the Oval Office “sooner than you think.”

The remark was made in a fundraising video for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the party’s campaign arm for the upper chamber.

“I want to thank everybody for the tremendous support you’ve shown. We’re gonna take back the Senate, take back the House, we’re gonna take back the White House and sooner than you think,” Trump said. “It’s really going to be something special.”

Morning Consult/Politico surveyed 1,990 registered voters between June 4 and June 7. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
