If President Joe Biden is aware of the new data coming out of polls conducted in the all important swing states — and I mean cognitively aware, not just being informed — then he’s probably throwing one of his toddler-like fits, complete with rolling all around on the floor, kicking and screaming his guts out. It seems former President Donald Trump is edging him out, gaining advantages over the incumbent president in states that are critical for candidates to win in order to take the White House.
“The states that had the narrowest margin of victory for either candidate last cycle were Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, with Biden winning all but North Carolina. Across those key swing states, Trump is ahead of Biden 41% to 35%, and 24% of voters remain undecided, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll,” the Daily Caller reported.
“Among independent voters, the former president also held a slight advantage over Biden, according to the poll. Trump received 32% support among independents compared to Biden’s 30%, and 38% were undecided. Uncertain voters favored Biden over Trump at 49% to 38%,” the report continued.
The survey also revealed that, as of this writing, both Trump and Biden are tied at 39 percent in a race against each other for the presidency. So why are Americans not on board with a second term for Biden? There’s a whole lot of reasons, but chief among them is concern over Biden being older than dirt, along with the tanking economy and skyrocketing crime rate.
“An overwhelming majority of voters at 77%, including 65% of Democrats, think Biden is too old for another term, and only 39% believed he had enough mental acuity for the job, according to the poll. Nearly 90% of respondents said crime would be a large determining factor of who they vote for, and 73% said the economy is the same or worse now than it was prior to the pandemic,” the Daily Caller added.
According to data from RealClearPolitics, both Biden and Trump are leading the pack in their parties, 67. 8 percent and 56.6 percent respectively. In other words, at this point in the 2024 election season, it’s more than likely these two are who will be running in the general election. I don’t think that really surprises anyone. Trump is the de facto leader of the GOP. He has much influence with many of the more influential people in Congress, as well as having a massive, loyal following in every state within the country.
“The Reuters/Ipsos poll surveyed 4,413 adults nationwide between Sept. 8 and Sept. 14, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2%,” the report concluded.
