According to a Wednesday survey, former President Donald Trump now leads Joe Biden by double digits.
According to Rasmussen Reports, Trump leads Biden by 11 points, 51% to 40%. This is up from the pollster’s last survey, which showed Trump ahead by 5 points.
The survey also indicated that Trump’s approval rating rose to 48% while Biden’s fell to 42%. Biden’s approval rating has dropped below Trump’s for the first time since taking office.
The poll’s results may please Trump fans, who want the previous president to return. They may also worry Biden supporters about the president’s 2024 re-election.
Remember that the Rasmussen Reports survey is only one, and it’s too early to determine whether Trump will bounce back. However, the survey suggests that Republican voters still like Trump and that he may challenge Biden in 2024.
Trump has been gaining pace on Biden in recent surveys, including Rasmussen Reports. Other surveys show Trump topping Biden in battleground areas like Pennsylvania and Michigan.
Trump is benefitting from the economy and Biden’s poor support ratings, according to surveys. Inflation at a 40-year high has hurt the economy in recent months. Biden’s favor ratings have plummeted as Americans become disillusioned with his economy and other policies.
It is unclear whether Trump will beat Biden in 2024. However, surveys indicate that he is a genuine candidate who might challenge the president.
