According to a recent survey, former President Donald Trump is the sole Republican contender with a chance of defeating incumbent Joe Biden in the general election.
Trump is also crushing it in the Republican primary, where he has a commanding lead over his challengers.
According to a recent Premise survey, 43% of Americans would choose Trump over 38% who would choose Biden, with 18% undecided.
In a hypothetical general election between Joe Biden and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, 37% of respondents indicated they would vote for Biden, while 33% would vote for DeSantis and 29% were undecided.
58% of prospective Republican primary voters support Trump as the party’s choice for president in 2024, compared with 21% who thought DeSantis would be the nominee. This gives the 45th president a 37-point advantage in the nomination campaign.
An Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll published recently found that Biden’s approval rating among Black voters, a key demographic group that has traditionally supported Democrats in national elections, has dropped to 58%, coinciding with the Premise poll showing Trump leading Biden by 5 points.
Among Republican voters in Florida, 69% say they would vote for Trump in 2024 despite his legal troubles, while another 18% say they will “somewhat support” him.
Respondents favored Trump over DeSantis in the study by a 59% to 31% margin.
The Premise study interviewed 2,042 American adults between May 12 and 15. There was no mention of error margins.
Biden’s popularity rating among Black voters stands at 58%, according to a recent survey conducted by the Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, down from the early days of his administration, when almost 9 of 10 Black respondents approved of his job performance.
Only 41% of respondents expressed interest in his running for reelection, and 55% of respondents said they would vote for Biden in the upcoming general election.
