President Trump dominates Joe Biden in a potential 2024 rematch, both nationally and across every major geographic region, according to a recently released national poll conducted by the Public Polling Project.
Overall, the 45th president out-polled Biden by over eight percentage points nationally, which roughly mirrors the generic ballot lead for Republicans over Democrats.
Perhaps most surprisingly, the poll found Trump leading Biden by over five percentage points in the heavily Democratic Northeast region, which includes ME, NH, VT, RI, CT, NY, NJ, DE, PA, and MD – all states reportedly carried by Biden in the 2020 race.
Similarly, Trump out-polled Biden in the West by over six percentage points, despite that region including several states which heavily lean Democrat.
Trump’s most ardent support comes from the South, where he leads Biden by a full 15 percentage points.
The poll also included more troubling job approval statistics for the Biden administration, as a mere 39.8 percent of the 2,414 respondents approve of Biden, while 58.6 percent disapprove. This comes as Biden’s handling of every major national issue—the economy, immigration, foreign policy, crime, and the coronavirus—remains underwater.
Kamala Harris, who has consistently suffered from historically low disapproval ratings during her tenure as vice president, earned just a 36.3 percent approval, compared to a 57.7 percent disapproval.
The poll was conducted earlier this month and included 2,414 respondents distributed across four major geographic regions.
Although he has not formally announced his candidacy, President Trump has continually hinted at a 2024 campaign since leaving office in January and maintains overwhelming support among the Republican electorate.
