Thirty percent of Republican voters say they think former President Trump will "likely" be reinstated to office this year, according to a new poll.

The poll by The Hill newspaper and HarrisX released Friday showed 70% of Republican respondents said such a scenario is "unlikely," as did 74% of independents and 87% of Democrats.

The results are similar to those in a Politico-Morning Consult survey released June 9 that showed 29% of GOP votes think Trump will be reinstated.

In the Hill-HarrisX poll, 26% of independents and 13% of Democrats said it's likely Trump will be reinstated.

There is no constitutional or legal mechanism for Trump to return to office in 2021 after losing to President Biden in last year's election. The Electoral College results were certified by Congress in January, according to The Hill. 

The Hill-HarrisX poll follows reports earlier this month that Trump had been telling people in his circle that he expects to be reinstated by August, citing his hotly disputed claims that the 2020 election was "stolen."
