According to recent polling data, former President Donald Trump could make one of the most epic comebacks in all of political history if he runs in 2024.
The Washington Examiner reported that the former president has taken a double-digit lead over President Joe Biden in a 2024 poll.
This week’s Rasmussen Reports survey shows that the former president would likely be picked by 45 percent of voters, over the 32 percent that would choose the current president, were the election to take place today.
The discrepancy is even higher among the ever-elusive independent “swing votes” where the gap is Trump over Biden 47 percent-20 percent.
This polling data is important, partially because of the timing, with the president’s lead falling away to the negative before he’s even done with his first year in office.
Biden’s “honeymoon period” should still keep him in backing by supporters who put him in office in the first place, however,, the president can’t stand up to the memory of lower gas prices, a better economy, and greater leverage in international deals.
“Rasmussen reported a sizable number of voters who want someone else, at 17%, and just 6% said they were on the fence. Also: 15% of Democrats said they’d vote for Trump compared to 8% of Republicans who’d pick Biden,” the Examiner reported.
They also cited the poll what is possibly greater bad news for Biden, which was that, “Only 69% of those who say they voted for Biden last year would vote for him again if the election were held today.
“Eight percent (8%) of Biden’s 2020 voters would switch to Trump, who would get 83% support from those who voted for him last year.”
