Donald Trump would defeat both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris if the former president decides to run in 2024, a new poll revealed Thursday.
According to a Rasmussen Reports poll, in a race between Trump and Biden in 2024, 51 percent of possible voters said they would vote for Trump, whereas just 41 percent said they would choose Biden.
Independent voters would also overwhelmingly choose the GOP candidate, selecting Trump over Biden by 20 points.
The gap in a Trump versus Harris election is even bigger, with Trump topping the Vice President 52 percent to 39 percent.
Additionally, one-fifth of Democrats said they would pick Trump rather than either Biden or Harris.
When survey participants were asked whether or not Trump should run for president again, 48 percent of likely voters said he should run, while 44 percent said he should not.
The Rasmussen poll was conducted from September 21-22 and surveyed 1,000 likely voters.
President Biden’s approval rating among Americans continues to drop as a number of crises grip the United States, including thousands of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border, Americans stranded in Afghanistan following Biden’s disastrous withdrawal, and looming COVID-19 mandates. According to a recent Gallup poll, the president’s approval sits in negative territory at just 43 percent, dropping 6 points in one month alone.
The survey, which was conducted from September 1-17, also showed that Biden has a 53 percent disapproval rate.
“Independents have shown the greatest variation in their opinions of how Biden is doing. Biden’s current 37% approval rating among independents is his lowest to date and 24 points below his personal high of 61%. Two-thirds of Biden’s slide among independents since he took office has occurred in the past three months,” Gallup noted in the survey.
Former President Trump has hinted that he will run for the White House again in 2024. On Saturday, September 25, Mr. Trump is holding another rally in Georgia as a “continuation of President Trump’s many appearances in support of candidates and causes that further the MAGA legacy and accomplishments of President Trump’s Administration.”
On Wednesday, former President Trump wrote in an email provided to American Military News that “we are losing our country.”
“We are losing our Country! The Democrats are vicious and fight like hell, and the Republicans do nothing about it. RINOs fight harder against Republicans than they do against Democrats. They want to be so politically correct, even if that means losing our Country, which is happening now,” Trump wrote, later adding, “Remember, the Fake News Media does not report the truth!”
