The results of a new survey are positive for former President Donald Trump, who is considering a rematch with President Joe Biden.
The majority of Republican voters, according to a Monmouth poll released on Tuesday, believe Trump has the greatest chance of defeating Biden in 2016.
The poll asked respondents, “Regardless of whether you currently support Donald Trump, which of the following statements comes closest to your view about which Republican has the best chance to win in 2024.”
Donald Trump is definitely the strongest candidate to beat Joe Biden
Donald Trump is probably the strongest candidate to beat Joe Biden
Another Republican would probably be a stronger candidate than Trump
Another Republican would definitely be a stronger candidate than Trump
Another Republican would unquestionably be a more formidable candidate than Trump.
63% of respondents believe Trump has the greatest chance of defeating Biden, compared to 32% for another Republican candidate.
45 percent of the larger group was certain that Trump was the strongest candidate, while 18 percent believed that Trump was likely the strongest. 19 percent of the 32 percent of respondents who believed that someone other than Trump would be the strongest candidate believed that another candidate would likely be stronger.
Breitbart News reported, citing a survey, that only 13% of this group believed another candidate would be unquestionably more qualified.
Trump received 43 percent support, placing him in the lead, while Florida Governor Ron DeSantis received 19 percent support, placing him 24 points behind Trump. Trump’s numbers have increased by two points since March, whereas DeSantis’ support has decreased by eight points during the same time period.
“DeSantis lost ground even before he got out of the starting gate. Republican voters still like him, but they haven’t heard a convincing case for why he would be the party’s best option,” Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute, said.
Trump may continue to face legal challenges in New York and Georgia, but according to a significant new 2024 presidential poll released this month, these cases do not appear to have harmed him politically.
In fact, the perception that he is being politically targeted may aid him ahead of a possible 2020 rematch with Biden.
According to the most recent Harvard-Harris poll, there has been a significant increase in support for Donald Trump, indicating that he may have a path to victory in 2020 if he secures the Republican nomination. The poll results indicate that despite numerous legal challenges, Trump continues to maintain a formidable presence, while also maintaining a substantial lead over his Democratic opponents.
Trump’s 47 percent approval rating, which surpasses Biden’s 40 percent, gives him a 7-point lead over the vice president.
