Trump Leads Early 2024 GOP Primary Polls, While Voters Have Mixed Feelings for Biden | Quinnipiac

According to a recent Quinnipiac survey, former President Trump is the front-runner in the Republican primary campaign for the upcoming presidential election. The survey also reveals that some voters have second thoughts about President Biden as they prepare for a potential rematch in 2024. This data emphasizes that the upcoming presidential election will be a critical and unpredictable event that will influence the course of events in the United States and beyond.

According to the poll, the former president is supported by 56% of Republican and Republican-leaning respondents. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who formally launched his White House bid on Wednesday, is behind him by 31 points.

Since late March, Trump's support has increased by 9 points, while DeSantis's has decreased by 8 points over the same time. Twelve more GOP contenders, both potential and declared, received barely 3 percent or less, leaving just the two Republicans in the lead.

In the fictitious rematch between Trump and Biden, Biden narrowly defeats Trump with 48% of the vote to 46% for Trump. Since late March, that division has not altered.

In the hypothetical scenario of an electoral contest pitting DeSantis against Biden, DeSantis trumps Biden by a hair-thin margin; gathering a mere 47 percent of the total votes compared to Biden's 46 percent. However, the difference conveniently falls within the margin of error of the survey, which stands at 2.4 percentage points.

According to a recent poll, the majority of Americans, a staggering 65 percent, hold firm to the belief that President Joe Biden, who is currently 78 years old, is simply too elderly to serve a second consecutive term in office. For many voters, this level of concern regarding a presidential candidate's age is nothing new, and it is not entirely surprising that these worries have been reignited as the president's announcement for the 2024 election draws ever closer.

Despite being only a few years younger than Joe Biden, Donald Trump is viewed as a potential candidate for re-election by nearly 59% of the respondents. The actual age of an individual, however, is not the only factor that determines their eligibility. Political experience, health, achievements, and public opinion are among other significant factors that should be taken into account.

From May 18-22, a survey was conducted with 1,616 self-identified registered voters. The survey had a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points for its 669 Republican and Republican-leaning voters who participated.
