New Poll Shows Trump Beating Biden, Vivek Closing on DeSantis

Former president Donald Trump would beat President Joe Biden if the race for the White House were held tomorrow, according to a new poll. The new findings by pollster Harvard-Harris show Trump leading the field for the GOP nomination and beating Biden by 5 points in a national matchup. The polling also shows a widening lead between Trump and runner-up Ron DeSantis, with businessman Vivek Ramaswamy narrowing in on the Florida Governor for second place.

If the election for President were held now, Trump would get 45%, with Biden only at 40%, with a pivotal 16 percent of voters undecided.

The former President’s lead expanded dramatically when voters were asked about a hypothetical matchup against Vice President Kamala Harris, totaling 47 to 38 percent.

Voters on both sides of the aisle expressed widespread dissatisfaction with their party’s frontrunners, however, with 70 percent of the roughly 2,000 respondents saying they were open to other options. The findings also showed that 68 percent of voters think the 80-year-old Biden is  “showing he is too old to be president,” with 64 percent saying he should not seek a second term. With Trump turning 77 last month, most Republican respondents said they would support DeSantis should the former President exit the race.

Polling among Republican primary voters showed overwhelming support for Donald Trump at 52 percent. The next runner-up, Governor Ron DeSantis, lagged 40 points behind, receiving just 12 percent support. The findings also showed Republican newcomer Vivek Ramaswamy narrowing on the governor, receiving just slightly under 10 percent support.

In a direct matchup between Trump and DeSantis, 63 percent of voters support Trump, compared to 37 percent who support DeSantis.

While the findings show strong markers for Trump in the GOP primary, the survey ultimately ignores the fact that delegates are won on a state-by-state basis.

Overall, voters nationwide reported feeling pessimistic about the direction of the country. Inflation ranked as the most important issue according to respondents, followed by the economy and immigration. More than three out of four voters said they had felt the impacts of inflation, with six out of ten voters saying it was their primary issue.

Less than three in ten voters said they felt the country was on the “right track.”

When asked about the current state of the Biden Administration, voters were largely disappointed.

The findings found that 63 percent of voters were dissatisfied with the probe into the cocaine found at the White House, with those respondents saying they wanted the Secret Service to continue their investigation. The Service recently reported that finding the perpetrator would be ‘impossible’ despite the building’s tight security measures.

While most respondents were not up-to-date with reports of the IRS whistleblowers, those that were familiar largely responded that they found the whistleblower reports credible and believed the Department of Justice had run cover for Hunter Biden and the Biden family.

Respondents were heavily divided on whether the United States should continue to fund Ukraine in its war with Russia, with voters responding 50-50.
