In an interview in August with Vittert, Pence said he’s tried during his campaign to change perceptions created over the past two and a half years by former President Donald Trump and his allies. Pence has drawn the ire of some of his former running mate’s supporters after criticizing Trump’s actions during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. However, he told Vittert the number of voters angry with him is “growing smaller every day.”
“I’m always very humbled by how many people come up to me and thank me for standing that day on the Constitution of the United States, for keeping my oath in the wake of those tumultuous hours and days,” Pence said in August.
The most recent poll from Morning Consult shows Pence (6%) just behind entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy (8%), and a few points below Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (15%). According to FiveThirtyEight‘s polling, he’s at 4.7%. Both polls, however, show Trump squarely in the lead, with over 50% of the vote in both cases.
