Although it might be confusing given that the Democrats have dealt with a Southern Border crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, a contested election, the Governor Cuomo scandal, and now the withdrawal from Afghanistan, President Joe Biden hasn’t even been in office for an entire year yet. And in that year, Biden has consistently struggled and fumbled his way through every problem.
Not to mention, his Vice President Kamala Harris is somehow missing in action. While the Democrats manage to keep their heads above water, for now, a new survey conducted by Emerson College asked over 1,000 likely voters who they would vote for in the 2024 election. And if you already don’t know, it doesn’t look good for Biden or any Democrat.
The national survey, which was conducted between August 30 to September 1st, asked registered voters who they would likely vote for in the upcoming election if former President Donald Trump was to run again. Surprisingly, given all the hate Trump garnered, it appeared voters are in desperate need of leadership as Trump beat Biden 47% to 46%.
Just the latest survey to show that Biden’s likelihood of being reelected is slim, the college also understood the fact that Trump was yet to say if he was running or not. So, the survey asked voters who would win between the polar opposite of Trump – Mitt Romney and Biden. In the old-school political election, Biden won in a landslide victory 42% to 23% for Romney.
Given that the GOP is highlighting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis right now as he battles COVID-19 and the Democrat’s mask mandates, the survey found that DeSantis came within a 12 points margin of beating Biden, but yet only Trump was able to edge out a victory on President Biden.
Not that surprised by the results, Spencer Kimball, Director of Emerson College Polling, said, “Historically, this data reminds me of 1912 when Teddy Roosevelt failed to win the Republican nomination from then-President Taft and created a third party dooming the Republican chances against Woodrow Wilson. This data suggests that Republicans want either Trump or a Trumpian candidate to be their nominee, or half of them may split from the party.”
