Trump up on Biden as voters fret about President’s Age & Economy
Polling showes Trump is significantly ahead of Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, with 51% saying they would support Trump to Biden’s 42%.
President Joe Biden’s age is not the only hurdle he will be facing in the 2024 presidential election, as record numbers of Americans say they are worse off financially under his presidency and former President Donald Trump is polling significantly higher in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, according to a poll released Sunday.
Just 15% of Americans say they are financially better off under Biden, which is among the lowest of all presidents dating back to Ronald Reagan, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll. Meanwhile, 44% of Americans say they are not as well off as they were before Biden entered the Oval Office, which is the highest percentage of Americans to say so for any ABC/Post poll since the outlets began posing the question in 1986.
Additionally, the poll showed that Trump is significantly ahead of Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, with 51% saying they would support Trump to Biden’s 42%.
Trump’s approval rating has increased since he left office when it was at 38%. The latest poll showed that 48% of Americans say they approve of Trump’s performance.
While Biden would be 82 years old at the start of his second term if reelected and Trump would be 78 years old if he were elected in 2024, 74% of Americans say Biden is too old for another term as president while 49% say Trump is too old, the poll also showed.
Biden’s approval rating of 37% is another area in which he is struggling. His ratings on his handling of the economy and immigration are at career lows as well at 30% and 23% approval ratings, respectively.
Langer Research Associates conducted this poll from Sept. 15-20 with 1,006 U.S. adults and it has a 3.5% margin of error.
