Americans lukewarm on Biden, Trump as 2024 nears, but one has slight edge: poll
When asked to choose between the two presidents in a hypothetical 2024 race, both politicians received support from less than 50% of registered U.S. voters surveyed, with Biden at 47% and Trump at 43%. People who said they were not sure or would not vote made up 6% and 4%, respectively, of the respondents.
The poll also asked all respondents if they “approved” of Biden’s “handling” of the presidency, with only 40% saying they “strongly” or “somewhat” did so. Only 38% said they had a “very” or “somewhat” favorable opinion of Trump.
Both presidents also received low perceptions of fitness for the highest office in the U.S. Neither was deemed particularly “fit to serve another term as president,” with 27% of respondents saying Biden would be, and 36% saying Trump would.
The results come from a sample of 1,638 U.S. adults who took the online survey from July 13 to July 17, 2023. The margin of error was plus or minus 2.7%.
