President Donald Trump is garnering substantial traction for the potential 2024 presidential race, according to recent polling.
Fox News reported that in their most recent survey, President Trump leads the GOP nomination race with an overwhelming 62 percent of Republican primary voters.
This substantial support places President Trump well ahead of other potential Republican candidates, with Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley trailing at 14 percent and 11 percent, respectively. This data represents a notable shift from previous surveys, highlighting the dynamic nature of the political landscape leading up to the 2024 elections.
However, the same Fox article highlighted that despite President Trump’s dominance in the GOP primary, Joe Biden leads among Democratic primary voters with 72 percent support. Nonetheless, Biden faces challenges as his job approval ratings stand at 40 percent approve and 59 percent disapprove, mirroring his record low from July 2022.
Biden’s approval troubles extend to key demographic groups, including men at 63 percent, voters under age 45 at 62 percent, Hispanics at 60 percent, voters with a college degree at 57 percent, and Black voters at 41 percent. These groups, according to Fox News, may be open to alternatives, as indicated by Nikki Haley’s inroads.
The New York Post reported that President Trump not only surpasses Biden in a head-to-head matchup but also outperforms other potential Democratic candidates. The aforementioned Fox News survey reveals President Trump leading Biden from 50 percent to 46 percent among registered voters, with similar leads against Vice President Kamala Harris, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, and Sen. Joe Manchin in hypothetical matchups.
In the national Republican primary, according to the New York Post, President Trump has a commanding 49-point lead, with 62 percent support compared to 13 percent for DeSantis. Even if DeSantis or Haley manages to overhaul President Trump and secure the Republican nomination, the poll suggests they would still defeat Biden in the general election.
The same New York Post article also said that Nikki Haley emerges as a strong contender in potential matchups against Biden, leading by 11 percentage points, ranging from 52 percent to 41 percent. This finding aligns with Haley’s notable performance in demographic groups crucial for electoral success.
Notably, Biden faces disapproval across key demographics. It was further revealed by the New York Post that it included men at 63 percent, voters under 45 at 62 percent, Hispanics at 60 percent, and college-educated voters at 57 percent. His approval ratings are at an all-time low among black voters at 41 percent, indicating potential vulnerabilities in crucial constituencies.
The survey also underscores a shifting political landscape, with President Trump gaining support among key demographics compared to three years ago. Independent, Black, Hispanic, and suburban voters have all shown increased support for President Trump, painting a heartening picture for President Trump’s supporters in the upcoming elections.
