Poll Shows Biden And Trump Still Neck-And-Neck

Donald Trump and Joe Biden are neck and neck in a hypothetical rematch in 2024, according to The Hill. A poll from the New York Times and Siena College revealed that each candidate is supported by 43 percent of registered voters. 

But the demographics within that 43 percent differs between the two. Of Biden’s supporters, only 36 percent are men, whereas 49 percent are women. By contrast, Trump fares better with men at 50 percent contrary to women which is just 37 percent. Biden is more evenly supported across the age bracket, with 47 percent coming from those between 18 and 29 and 48 percent from those aged 65 or greater. However, Trump does better with those aged 45 to 64. 

The president crushes the black vote, garnering 71 percent of their support. The two are closest together with the Hispanic vote, but Biden still comes out on top with 41 percent of their support. 

Among all voters, however, Biden’s approval rating is 40 percent and his disapproval stands at nearly 55 percent. These numbers are not so different when it comes to Trump. 56 percent of Americans find Trump unfavorable contrasted with just 39 percent who hold a favorable view of him. 

Biden is holding a sizeable lead among other Democratic candidates. He reportedly enjoys 65.5 percent support nationally, whereas Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is polling at 14.2 percent. Marianne Williamson, the self-help author and communitarian candidate, does not meet FiveThirtyEight’s criteria to be a major candidate and therefore does not have polling available. 

Trump is also dominating the Republican primary polls. He is reportedly leading with 54 percent of Republican support while Florida Governor Ron DeSantis trailed with less than 20 percent. But despite his early lead, 46 percent of GOP voters say that they’re open to supporting a different candidate.
