As the 2024 general election marches closer, President Donald Trump is in a dominant position to win back the White House next November.
New general election polling shows the 45th president leading Biden nationwide. According to Emerson College, Trump has a 5-point lead in a three-way battle for the nomination between himself, Biden, and Green Party candidate Cornel West.
Another new poll from Reuters/Ipsos illustrated Trump’s powerful position looking ahead to the 2024 general election. Their national data found that President Donald Trump had 38 percent support among general election respondents, including Democrats, Republicans, and Independents.
Joe Biden had 32 percent of support. Among Republicans in their poll, Trump held 52 percent of support, gaining five more points of support since August 3. Republican presidential candidate Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., held 13 percent support, illustrating neither a point gain nor loss for the Florida leader since the beginning of the month.
Yet another August poll from Leger/NYP taken late in the month found that Trump had a nationwide lead in the general election, edging out a three-point gap between himself and Biden. 15 percent of respondents indicated that they would like to see “someone else” as the president in 2024.
In their poll, the 2024 GOP presidential primary showed monstrous support for Trump among conservative voters, with the 45th president taking a whopping 61 percent of Republican support, while DeSantis accrued only 9 percent.
Trump joked on Monday that there were “strong” rumors in political circles that DeSantis “will be dropping out of the Presidential race in order to run, in Florida, against Rick Scott for Senate. Now that’s an interesting one, isn’t it?”
McLaughlin & Associates found last week that in a 2024 presidential general election, Trump would win across the board against Biden (47 percent to 43 percent) or Kamala Harris (50 percent to 40 percent).
