Trump tops Biden in hypothetical 2024 matchup poll

A newly-released poll has former President Donald Trump beating President Joe Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, Breitbart News reports

The poll comes from Emerson College. The pollster surveyed 1,148 registered voters during a two-day period, May 24 to 25. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.

Trump v. Biden

In the poll, Emerson College asked participants who they would choose to lead the country if the 2024 presidential election were to take place today and if Trump was going up against Biden.

Trump came out on top, with 44% of the vote, while Biden received 42%.

This is in line with several other polls that have put Trump up against Biden. Another example would be a recent Harvard-Harris poll that had Trump beating Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, 45% to 42% – a three percentage points margin.

Nothing is official yet

There, of course, is a lot that could happen between now and the 2024 presidential election.

In fact, at the moment, we don’t even know whether Biden or Trump will actually be in the race. Both Biden and Trump have suggested that they will run in 2024, but neither has made the official announcement.

In Biden’s case, his path to 2024 appears to be seriously uphill. This is demonstrated by other findings in Emerson’s Poll.

Biden is massively underwater

Emerson College’s poll put Biden’s job approval rating at only 38%. With 52% disapproving of the job Biden is doing as president, Biden finds himself seriously underwater.

There are several factors that appear to be driving Biden’s approval rating down, and chief among them is the U.S. economy. Emerson College found that the U.S. economy is the number one issue for 49% of voters. The next most important issue is crime, which is only the top concern for 12% of voters.

If these results were just a one-off, that would be one thing. But, the fact is that Biden has been consistently receiving numbers like this for many, many months now. If anything, the trend is not in Biden’s favor as many polls have him sinking even further underwater in recent months.

This all raises the question of whether Biden would even be a viable candidate for the Democrats in 2024. The fact that he is repeatedly losing to Trump in hypothetical 2024 matchups would suggest that he would not be.
