A new poll from the New York Times found Trump leading Biden in 5 key battleground states for 2024, sending early shockwaves through the Biden campaign as the president continues to struggle to compete with arguably the most corrupt political candidate in history.
The poll found Trump in the lead by as many as 11 percentage points in five states:
- Nevada: 52% vs. 41%
- Georgia: 49% vs. 43%
- Arizona: 49% vs. 44%
- Michigan: 48% vs. 43%
- Pennsylvania: 48% vs. 44%
While the election is still more than a year away, early polling has consistently given Trump a distinct advantage going into the 2024 election season, even as the former president fights four different legal battles nationwide.
The poll found most people believe Biden’s presidency has directly hurt them. Additionally, certain demographic groups that had supported Biden in 2020 seem less likely to support Biden now.
Young people only favor Biden by one percentage point. Hispanic support is also down to single digits. While women favor Biden, men overwhelmingly favor Trump by nearly 2x the margin.
Even Black voters in these battleground states are supporting Trump at levels we haven’t seen in a long time. A whopping 22% of black voters would pull the lever for Trump, easily the most support of any Republican candidate in modern times.
Biden will turn 81 years old later this month. He’s the oldest president in history, a quality that hasn’t helped the aging career politician.
