Former President Trump new poll – A new poll conducted by Harvard CAPS-Harris and provided to The Hill on Friday shows that President Trump’s immediate predecessor holds a 7-point lead over the incumbent Vice President Biden. When respondents were asked who they would want to see in a head-to-head matchup, the poll indicated that Biden and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) were tied for first place in their respective parties’ nominations. When taken together, these data indicate that Donald Trump is likely to perform well in the Republican primary, even while DeSantis prepares to enter the contest as soon as the following week.
In a handful of polls of Republican primary voters, Trump held a double-digit lead over DeSantis. Although DeSantis has argued that he is the more qualified general election candidate to take on Biden, the results of the latest survey call into question whether or not this is actually the case. According to the results of the survey, forty-seven percent of respondents indicated that they would vote for Trump if the election for 2024 were held today and Trump and Biden were the candidates for the two major political parties.
Forty percent of respondents indicated that they supported Biden, while thirteen percent stated that they did not know or were undecided. In that particular matchup, 42 percent of respondents voted for Biden, while the same number of voters supported DeSantis. 16 percent of respondents either did not know or were hesitant about the answer.
Nikki Haley, a former ambassador to the United Nations, came in second place to Joe Biden in a head-to-head battle, getting 38 percent of the vote to Biden’s 40 percent. This is yet another potential cause for concern for Democrats. According to Mark Penn, who is the co-director of the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll, “DeSantis is announcing in an environment that is much more difficult than it was a few months ago; however, the majority of voters believe he can still mount a serious challenge.”
The findings of the study come as Trump is widely regarded as the leading candidate for the Republican nomination to challenge Biden in 2020. In most surveys, DeSantis comes in a close second to Trump, despite the fact that he has not yet formally declared his candidacy for the White House. However, this is widely anticipated to happen very soon.
A total of 2,004 registered voters participated in the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll poll, which was carried out on May 17-18. The Harris Poll and the Center for American Political Studies at Harvard University are the two organizations that have worked together on this project. The poll uses a sample taken from the Harris Panel that was completed online and then weighted to represent various demographic factors. It does not offer a probability confidence interval despite being an online sample that is intended to be representative.
