Former President Trump and President Biden tied in a poll regarding a potential 2024 matchup between the two rivals. The new Grinnell College National Poll revealed the two men were neck in neck with potential voters.
The Hill reports:
Biden and Trump each won the support of 40 percent of likely voters surveyed, and 14 percent said they would vote for “someone else.” Another 1 percent said they would not vote, and 4 percent said they were not sure.
Both candidates racked up support from their own parties, with Biden winning 87 percent of Democrats and Trump winning 80 percent of Republicans. They also won 100 percent of the voters who voted for them in 2020.
Neither person has formally announced their 2024 ambitions, but Biden has not given any signals that he plans on stopping at one term and Trump has given increasingly strong indications that he plans on making a third White House bid in 2024.
Trump has crisscrossed the map as the 2022 cycle heats up, including a stop earlier this month in the crucial caucus state of Iowa. He’s also handed out endorsements to a slate of candidates, including for candidates running against Republicans who are perceived to be critical of him.
Conservatives are anxiously waiting to hear if Trump will officially run however number of other Republican power players are in the mix as well. Some conservatives have already thrown their support behind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis though he says he’s only focused on running for re-election in the Sunshine State.
