A new poll regarding the potential rematch between Donald Trump and Joe Biden puts Trump in the lead. A new Emerson College poll asks voters which politician they would support if the two are on the ballot once again.
The Hill reports:
The national survey shows Trump leading Biden 44 percent to 39 percent in a head-to-head match-up, while another 12 percent of voters say they plan to vote for someone else.
Trump’s support has held firm since May, when the same poll found him notching 44 percent support in a 2024 race against Biden. But Biden’s support has waned somewhat since then, dropping from 42 percent in May to 39 percent in late June.
If he does ultimately decide to run, however, Trump would be the early favorite to win the GOP presidential nod. Fifty-five percent of voters say they would support Trump in the 2024 Republican primary, while 20 percent would back Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a rising star within the party who has been floated as a potential presidential contender.
No other Republican scores double-digit support in a hypothetical primary match-up. Former Vice President Mike Pence notches 9 percent, while every other prospective candidate in the poll fails to clear even 5 percent support.
Will Biden manage to sway voters in his favor or should he go ahead and throw in the towel?
