Harvard-Harris Poll: Trump Takes Substantial Lead Over Biden Ahead of 2024
A significant new 2024 presidential survey finds that although former President Donald Trump is still dealing with legal issues in New York and Georgia, such cases do not appear to have affected him politically.
In fact, he might even benefit from the impression that he is being politically targeted as he prepares for a potential rematch against President Joe Biden in 2020.
The most recent Harvard-Harris poll shows a noticeable increase in Trump support, pointing to a possible road to success in 2016 if he wins the GOP nomination. The polling data shows that despite numerous legal difficulties, Trump has maintained his dominance and enjoys a sizable lead over his Democratic rivals.
The poll showed a stunning rise in support for Trump, who received 47 percent of the vote compared to Biden’s 40 percent, giving him a clear 7-point advantage.

The survey evaluated potential races featuring Donald Trump and other well-known Democrats. For instance, the results showed that Trump received 50% of the vote, while Kamala Harris, the vice president, received only 39%.
The polls showed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Biden tied with 42 percent of the vote each, the same result as a possible DeSantis-Harris contest. DeSantis has not yet declared his candidacy but is anticipated to do so as early as this week.
A striking indication of the lack of trust in Biden’s ideas is the survey’s finding that less than 33% of respondents think the country is headed in the right direction. Furthermore, a startling 66 percent of the participants expressed anxiety about the trajectory of the U.S. economy, indicating they think it is moving in the wrong direction. This is a glaring sign that they believe the current administration is incapable of managing the nation’s financial situation.

At the same time, 50% of respondents said that the Biden administration had a negative impact on their personal finances. Additionally, only 21% of respondents indicated confidence in avoiding a potential recession in the poll.
Overall, there is a troubling trend of pessimism regarding the nation’s economic prospects, which is likely to increase the possibility that more Americans would support Trump’s reelection to the presidency given his track record as an effective leader when it comes to boosting the economy and creating employment.
Biden’s approval ratings have remained stable over the past three months, barely rising above 40%. However, the GOP’s approval ratings have marginally decreased to 47%, and the Democratic Party and the Republicans are now matched at 47%. The approval rating for Congress has marginally increased to 36%.
But overall, the poll’s results indicate that Americans are still unimpressed with the way politics is going in the country.
The poll’s final finding was that Elon Musk, Trump, and DeSantis are currently the most popular public people.
An ABC/Washington Post poll conducted earlier this month revealed that Trump had a 7-point advantage over Biden.
“According to the poll, the president would lose the general election to his predecessor by a margin of 7 points. Respondents were asked if they would ‘certainly’ vote for Trump or Biden, ‘probably’ vote for Trump or Biden, or if they would vote for someone else or not at all. Trump leads Biden 36-32 among those who ‘absolutely’ favor one candidate over the other. But when those who ‘probably’ voted are included in the findings, Trump’s lead increases to 7 points, giving him a 45-38 advantage over Biden, according to the results, as reported by Mediaite.
According to the poll, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) of the Republican Party would perform only marginally better than Biden. When it comes to voters who are “definitely” supporting a particular candidate, the president and DeSantis are tied 32-32. But if the
