A new Emerson College poll puts Republicans in the lead for the 2022 midterm elections and Trump ahead for the 2024 election.
No one knows for sure if Trump is going to run again in 2024, but if he does he is already in good shape.
The 2022 midterms are the more immediate concern. If Republicans retake power, Biden will be frozen in his tracks.

Emerson Poll: GOP Ahead 5 for Midterms; Trump Ahead 3 for ’24
Republicans continue to show promise for the 2022 November midterm elections, according to the latest Emerson College poll released Tuesday.
Not only do Republicans hold more than a 5-point lead in a generic ballot over Democrats, former President Donald Trump holds a 3-point edge over President Joe Biden in a hypothetical 2024 presidential race, the poll found.
Registered voters were asked if they would vote for a Republican or Democrat congressional candidate in the 2022 midterms:
1. Republican 47.1%.
2. Democrat 41.8%.
3. Undecided 11.2%.
Democrats might have more at stake than their slight congressional majorities in the House and Senate as Biden trails Trump in the hypothetical 2024 race for the White House. The vote at the time of the Emerson poll:
1. Trump 44.9%.
2. Biden 41.9%.
3. Someone else 11.1%.
4. Undecided 2.1%.
“Biden struggles among independent voters: Just 28% approve of the job he is doing, while 64% disapprove,” Emerson pollster Spencer Kimball wrote in the analysis Tuesday. “When looking at the midterm generic congressional ballot, independents break 28% for Democrats, 42% with Republicans, and 31% are undecided.”
Could we really see Trump vs. Biden again in 2024?

After the 2020 election, the liberal Brookings Institution declared that suburbs won it for Biden and predicted that they would become the party’s backbone.

Biden is a train wreck.
