A new poll from the Washington Post and ABC News shows President Joe Biden trailing his predecessor Donald Trump in a hypothetical contest in November 2024.
“Trump beats Biden 51-42 in head-to-head,” the poll said. Trump is far ahead of his other Republican rivals in the party’s presidential race. The Republican Party’s formal nomination process will begin with the Iowa Caucus and the New York Times. Hampshire Primary in January.
While two of the Indian-American Republican presidential candidates – former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy – have gained momentum in recent weeks, Trump is far ahead of his Republican rivals and political experts believe he is on his way to becoming a candidate become part of the party.
The Washington Post-ABC News poll released Sunday shows a record number of Americans say they have become worse off under his presidency. Three-quarters say he is too old for another term and that Donald Trump looks better in retrospect – all serious challenges for Biden in his upcoming re-election campaign, the poll results show.
However, the Washington Post disagrees with the poll results. The prominent US daily reported that the poll showing Trump beating Biden by 10 points is likely an “outlier” as other polls show the two rivals in a dead heat.
“The Post-ABC poll shows Biden trailing Trump by 10 percentage points at this early stage of the election cycle, although the significant margin of Trump’s lead in this survey significantly contradicts other public polls showing the general election race virtually dead is. heat. The difference between this poll and others, as well as the unusual composition of the Trump-Biden coalitions in this survey, suggest it is likely an outlier,” the paper said.
According to the poll, Trump is favored by 54 percent of Republicans and Republican independents. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is in second place with 15 percent, down from 25 percent in May.
