A new poll has found that Donald Trump would beat President Biden in a presidential survey.
According to the poll of 1,200 possible voters, Donald Trump would beat Biden. In a 2024 election survey which was done between August 30 and September 1, there were 47% who favored Donald Trump, compared to just 46% for Joe Biden in the survey rematch, the Emerson College poll said.
The poll discovered that other top 2024 Republican presidential contenders would do far worse than Donald Trump. In the hypothetical match-up between Joe Biden and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the president got 48% of the vote compared to 36% for the GOP governor. According to the survey, Senator Mitt Romney (GOP-Utah) would get destroyed by Biden in the contest, getting only 23%, while Biden would get 42%.
“Historically, this survey reminds me of the 1912 race when Teddy Roosevelt did not win the GOP nomination from President Taft and formed a third party which doomed the GOP challenges against Woodrow Wilson,” Spencer Kimball, leader of the Emerson College Survey, said. “This data means that conservatives want Donald Trump or a Trump-like candidate to be their nominee, or they might split from the party.”

Among GOP voters, 67% said that they would want Donald Trump for 2024. The only other person who got double-digit backing was DeSantis, with 10%. DeSantis would be the top at 32% if Trump were not going to run in 2024.
There were 60% of Dem. voters who want Joe Biden as the 2024 Democratic presidential nominee, while 39% reported they wanted another candidate.
The Emerson College poll results discovered that Biden’s approval was underwater with around 47% of respondents not approving of his job compared to 46% who did approve. In Emerson’s poll done in February, Joe Biden had an approval of 49% with just 39% disapproving.
According to the latest information from RealClearPolitics, Joe Biden currently has 49.3% disapproval while only 45.2% approval.
Biden has seen his approval drop recently due to the chaotic withdrawal from the nation of Afghanistan, where 13 United States service members were killed during a terrorist attack.
