A new Harvard CAPS-Harris poll has found that Donald Trump leads both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in a potential 2024 match-up.
This is going to fuel further specualtion that Trump will run again.
The Democrats are weak, and if they pull Biden and Harris from their 2024 ticket they will appear even more weak than they are now.
The Hill reports:
Poll: Trump leads Biden, Harris in 2024 match-ups
Former President Trump is leading President Biden in a hypothetical 2024 match-up, according to a new Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey released exclusively to The Hill on Monday.
If the 2024 presidential election were held right now, the poll finds Trump getting 47 percent support compared to 41 percent for Biden. Twelve percent of voters are undecided.
Vice President Harris performs even worse in a hypothetical match-up with Trump. Forty-nine percent said they would choose Trump, while 38 percent said they would support Harris.
The poll, while very early, portends trouble for Democrats in their 2024 effort to maintain control of the White House after taking it back less than two years ago. Trump has repeatedly hinted that he’s considering another bid for the presidency and remains deeply popular among the GOP’s conservative base.
Even if Trump and Biden choose not to run in 2024, Democrats may face some challenges. The Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey found Harris leading Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a current favorite for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, by a scant 2-point margin.
Here are some other details from the poll.
