The newest polling numbers give former US President Donald Trump the lead over current US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris if a presidential election cycle was held today.
Rasmussen Reports released the findings of their latest survey for 2024 projections Thursday. The consensus from a thousand likely US voters found Trump would beat Biden with a ten percent lead (51 to 41). Harris would also lose to Trump, but by thirteen percentage points (52 to 39).
Trump previously left the question of a potential 2024 bid open-ended, telling people at a September 11 appearance they were "going to be happy."
Other notable findings from Rasmussen, include:
- 84 percent of Republican voters would back Trump again, versus 74 percent of Democrats that’d do the same for Biden.
- 70 percent of voters believe the border situation between the US and Mexico is a crisis, up four percent since May 2021.
- 54 percent blame the Biden administration’s approach to immigration as the problem, versus 37 percent who say Trump’s policies were to blame.
- 52 percent now say Biden’s decisions on immigration issues are "poor," up two points since April.
- 52 percent want Trump’s "aggressive, confrontational" leadership style back after seeing Biden, but over 44 percent still hate it.
On the flip-side, there remains hesitancy in another election bid by the former president. The polls indicate 48 percent think it’s a good idea versus 44 percent that think it’s a bad idea, including 49 percent of voters 65 and older.
The survey was conducted on Tuesday and Wednesday with a cited margin of error of +/- 3 percent.
The polling reflects a continued downward spiral in support for the White House, citing Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Earlier Thursday, Biden’s approval rating saw a sharp decline in the weeks following his September 9 vaccine mandate announcement requiring private companies coerce employees to get the jab. The rise in disapproval was particularly felt among unvaccinated black voters.
A separate poll conducted by Fox News showed an increasing number of Americans believe the country is less united under the Biden administration.
