Pollsters Wonder if It’s “Too Early” To Tell Whether Trump Leads Biden in 2024 Race

(RepublicanDaily.org) – Political pollsters are wondering if it’s too soon to tell whether former President Donald Trump leads incumbent President Joe Biden in 2024 election polls, Five Thirty-Eight reported.

Factors leading analysts to anticipate a Trump-to-Biden rematch include Trump’s overall popularity lead over other Republicans currently anticipated to join the race in 2024. At the time of this report, Trump had a 41-point lead over anticipated candidate Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who may potentially be his top contender in the line-up of possible GOP nominees.

Other factors that have led to political analysts pondering Trump’s potential lead come from Biden’s dropping approval rate. At the time of this report, Biden’s disapproval rating was at 56% of surveyed Americans, while his approval ranking was at 42.5%. On May 9, the disapproval ranking had increased by 10 points on Five Thirty-Eight’s metrics. The Five Thirty-Eight system analyzes leading polls across the political aisle. In these metrics, the outlet compared a wide variety of top national polls and compared dates spanning the Biden presidency with metrics taken between May 2 and 8.

Biden recently announced his intention to run for re-election in 2024. However, across the political divide, politicians, analysts, and citizens question a second Biden term. Those opposed wonder if the president, who is 80 years old, is too old to hold office a second time. These commentators have noted that Biden will be 86 years old at the time when his potential second term would end, Newsweek reported.

As the American public questioned a second Biden term, and as anticipation grows over the potential for a Trump-Biden 2024 rematch, former President Trump has been “ramping up” political attacks on the Biden administration’s performance, Forbes reported. In his foray of criticism, which was posted to Truth Social, Trump pointed out that Biden has yet to visit the citizens of East Palestine, Ohio, who were impacted by a catastrophic train derailment accident earlier this year.
