President Donald Trump is gaining major momentum in 2024 political polling as the presidential campaign season has kicked off with a bang following his indictment by a Manhattan grand jury.

A new poll from Rasmussen, for example, has found that Trump has gained an impressive 10 points on Biden since news of the indictment broke, via Newsmax. Per Rasmussen, Trump eclipsed his Democrat rival with 47 percent of support against Biden’s 40 percent.

In February, Rasmussen reported that Biden had been leading by a slim 3 points.

Meanwhile, Biden’s support is continuing to sink, even in mainstream polls. CNN found that between March 1-31, only 32 percent of Americans think that Joe Biden deserves to be reelected for a second term, while 62 percent said that he did not deserve to be reelected.

Interestingly, this survey was taken before news of Trump’s indictment broke.

The CNN poll also found that 57 percent of Americans disapprove of Biden’s job performance in the White House and that the majority (67 percent) of voters feel that he lacks the stamina to serve as president, while 54 percent did not feel that he is trustworthy.

Via FiveThirtyEight, Trump also holds a 2-point lead in YouGov/Economist polling, with 44 percent of the vote against Biden’s 42 percent.

As reported by RSBN, the newest 2024 GOP Primary Tracker from Morning Consult found that Trump had taken a commanding 55 percent lead over a field of Republican presidential contenders, including Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., who scored 26 percent in the same poll. Trump also led mightily in a Big Village primary poll, snagging 52 percent of the support against DeSantis’s 23 percent.

State-by-state, Trump is also performing exceptionally well. In Texas, he has experienced a 43-point net swing of support in his direction since January, gaining 52 percent of a potential 2024 primary vote against DeSantis’s 20 percent via CWS Research.

The Trump campaign has also raised more than $10 million in donations since news of the president’s indictment broke, per RSBN.
