Registered Voters Favor Trump in 2024 Election
According to a recent poll released on Tuesday, former President Donald Trump is now leading President Joe Biden among registered voters nationwide. The poll shows Trump edging Biden 46% to 44%.
Razor-Thin Margin in Likely Voter Poll
When looking at likely voters in the 2024 presidential election, Biden holds a slight advantage with 47% support compared to Trump’s 45%. This early look at the next election reveals a close race between the two candidates.
Shift in Younger Voter Support
Younger voters, particularly those aged 18-29, are expressing disapproval of Biden’s handling of the conflict in Gaza. The poll suggests that nearly three-quarters of these voters disapprove of Biden’s approach. In a surprising turn, younger voters say they would back Trump over the current president, with a margin of 49% to 43%. This marks a significant shift from a previous survey in June, which showed Biden with a 10-point lead in this demographic.
Trump Favored in Handling Israel-Palestinian Fighting
Among registered voters overall, Trump has a lead over Biden in handling the Israel-Palestinian fighting. The poll indicates that 46% believe Trump would do a better job, while only 38% believe Biden would handle the situation better.
Slipping Approval Ratings for Biden
Biden’s approval rating has taken a hit in recent polls. The survey shows his approval slipping to 37% among registered voters, which is a significant drop. A Monmouth University poll released on Monday revealed Biden’s approval rating at an all-time low of 34%. This decline in popularity is a cause for concern for the president as he approaches his third year in office. However, a Fox News national poll released on Sunday indicates a slightly higher approval rating for Biden at 43%.
Importance of Approval Ratings
Approval ratings are a crucial indicator of a president’s performance, influence, and popularity. They are closely monitored, especially when an incumbent in the White House is seeking a second term. Biden’s declining approval ratings raise questions about his ability to maintain support as he faces upcoming challenges and potential re-election in 2024.
