Nigel Farage has claimed that the “survival of western civilisation” could be at stake in the next US election as exclusive polling for Express.co.uk has revealed that Donald Trump is heading for a dramatic comeback. Mr Farage is a close friend and ally of the former US President who is understood to be in the process of preparing a new bid for the White House. But polling of 1,500 likely voters by the by the Washington DC based Democracy Institute has revealed that former President Trump is ahead of a list of potential contenders in 2024.

Mr Farage welcomed the results saying he believed that Donald Trump is the only leading politician who understands what is at stake.

He said: “This is now about the future of western civilisation. Do we believe in a Judeo Christian culture? Do we believe that the family is a unit for good? Do we believe in free speech? Do we believe in polarity of opinions? Do we believe our countries are good countries, our histories have shaped us and made us what we are, are we ashamed of our forebears, are we ashamed of who we are? This is how high the stakes are.

“If America falls the entirety of the west falls. We have witnessed literally the march of Marxism through the educational establishment, through much else and they are intent on destroying society.

“If you are telling eight year old boys who are white they are guilty and eight year old boys who are black they are victims, if you think that is going to lead to a happy society then you have a different view to me of the world. I’m really worried about it and that’s why I think Trump is terribly important.”

According to the poll, 56 percent believe Trump was a better President than Biden with only 42 percent believing the opposite.

Asked what type of car represents the Biden administration in quality a mere 10 percent picked Ferrari at the top end and 42 percent clown car at the bottom.

Shockingly, 53 percent think that Biden losing power is better for America than Putin losing power.

And the Biden effect seems to be harming the Democrats.

With the midterms coming up the Republicans look poised to grab control of both Houses of Congress.

In the House of Representatives vote the Republicans lead 49 percent to 44 percent, giving them a projected total of 254 seats to 181 ending Nancy Pelosi’s reign as House Speaker.

In the Senate vote the Republicans lead by 46 percent to 43 percent, giving them a projected 53 seats to 47.

Mr Farage, who has just joined the influential social media platform GETTR founded and run by Trump’s close ally Jason Miller, where he hopes to cut through to a rapidly increasing audience, said that Biden’s recent speech describing Trump supporters as “semi fascist” has backfired.

The poll shows that 64 percent to 31 percent disagree with the assessment by Biden while 53 percent to 41 percent disapprove of the raid on the former President’s house recently.

The poll also suggests that Americans think the Democrats represent the wealthy elite by 49 percent to 41 percent and Republicans ordinary voters by 51 percent to 38 percent.

Mr Farage said: “Biden’s speech was surprisingly aggressive. It was not a unifying speech, it was almost a declaration of war.

“To paint the Maga movement as extremists is a little like George Osborne tried to do with Brexiteers. It is a very, very big mistake.”

He went on: “Trump’s rock solid support base of 41/ 43 percent of the population is a very large group of people to describe in those terms.

“Who is advising Biden? I have no idea unless they are confident they have the deep state on their side. It’s frightening.”

On joining GETTR, he added: “GETTR is really interesting and I was one of the earliest advocates in British politics of using social media.

“I recognised this was what people would be reading, just as radio was in its time and television was in its time and I saw it really early.”

He said that unlike other platforms GETTR “supports freedom of speech.”
