According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, former President Donald Trump would beat both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in a presidential race—by a wide margin.
This recent poll was conducted among 1,000 likely voters between Sept. 21 and 22 and had a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.
It consisted of 3 questions, the first being whether they saw it as a good idea for Trump to run for the 2024 presidential election. Faced with this question, 48% said yes, versus 44% who said no.
The second question asked who they would vote for if the presidential election were held today, and the candidates were Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Former President Trump came out on top with 51% of the vote to Biden’s 41%.
The third question was similar to the second, except that the candidates were Kamala Harris and Donald Trump, and again, it was the former president who won the race with a 13 percentage point advantage. Trump obtained 52% of the votes against 39% obtained by the current vice-president.
There is more and more talk of a possible run by Trump for the presidency in 2024; even the polls show him as the winner in a Republican internal by a wide margin.
A new survey found that nearly six in 10 Republicans support Donald Trump’s potential 2024 bid to return to the White House.
The latest Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll shows the previous president is still a popular candidate for GOP endorsement. Trump received 58% of GOP responses, even though his campaign has not been officially announced.
Former Vice President Mike Pence secured second place with 13% and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) 9%. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and former United Nations U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley each received 3%. None of them came close to Trump.
“[The previous president] has a strong lead in the Republican primary, especially among the most dedicated Republicans,” survey co-director Mark Penn said, according to The Hill.
It should be noted that the former president has been holding rallies. The last one he held was on August 21 in Alabama and was massive. He has new meetings planned in Georgia on September 25 and in Iowa on October 9.
Overall 51% of respondents believe Trump is a better president than incumbent Joe Biden.
Penn believes the previous president’s improved popularity is partly due to him no longer being in public office. Although Trump has a weaker social network presence, his ban on multiple platforms seemingly increased his popularity with an “unprecedented” 48% favorable rating.
The poll was conducted between September 15 and 16 among 1,578 registered voters. A total of 490 of respondents are Republicans with a 4% error margin.
