The people’s champion: Trump is the STRONGEST candidate to take on Biden in 2024

The 2024 presidential election is shaping up to be what seems like an impending Trump landslide victory. Although the numbers are purely prospective, with 11 months to go until the general election showdown, the polls are hard to ignore.

A new survey from Redfield & Wilton Strategies released on Tuesday provided a glimpse into what the general election breakdown will probably look like, and the data is staggering. In a three-way race between President Donald Trump, Joe Biden, and Independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Trump reigned supreme, often edging his opponents out by wide margins.

In Georgia, for example, R&W found that Trump was leading by a whopping 10 points. He also led by seven points in Pennsylvania, nine points in North Carolina, and 10 points in Florida, and he just surpassed Biden by one point in Michigan.

According to their poll, Trump was also leading in Arizona by seven points – a sizable gap in a state where the margin was razor-thin in 2020. Locking up Georgia, Arizona, and Pennsylvania would all but guarantee a slam-dunk victory for Trump in the 2024 general election if the polling continues to hold strong.

The survey results from R&W are especially interesting, as there has been continued debate regarding whether Kennedy Jr.’s Independent candidacy would take more potential voters away from Trump or Biden.

Per R&W’s report, “As was also the case in early October, our latest poll suggests Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s candidacy may do more to help Donald Trump than Joe Biden.”

Moreover, they also found that Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (both Republican presidential candidates) “would perform worse in a General Election matchup against Biden than would Trump.”

In other words, Trump has the best chance of beating Biden over any other candidate – and that theory is strongly reflected in R&W’s poll findings.

In fact, both Haley and DeSantis are polled as losing against Biden in five critical states (Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania), while Trump prospectively wins against Biden in all of them.
