A new Emerson college poll has Former President Trump topping current President Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup.
Trump garnered 47% support compared to 46% for Biden.
6% responded “someone else.”
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.”
In addition, the same poll also finds more than twice as many voters blame Biden for the war in Afghanistan compared to those who blame Trump.
