Poll shows Biden’s support shrinking in potential 2024 matchup against Trump

President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are neck-and-neck in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, according to a new poll that indicated support for the president’s re-election is dwindling. In a hypothetical matchup between Trump and Biden, a Marquette Law School poll released Thursday found the two frontrunners tied with 38% of the vote, while 20% of respondents said they would support someone else. The polling results reflect a shift in the 2024 race. Biden was ahead of Trump by 10 percentage points in a November poll. A recent Fox News survey released Wednesday found support for Biden fading, with 52% of respondents wanting to see another candidate as the Democratic nominee in 2024. In the same Fox poll, 54% said they would like to see Trump as the GOP pick over any other potential or declared Republican candidate. The Fox News poll was conducted March 24 to 27, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. The Marquette poll indicates that among registered voters, Biden leads Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis by nearly 10 percentage points, locking in 43% of the vote, while the Florida governor, who has not announced whether he will run for president next cycle, received 34% support.

Other recent polls have shown Trump ahead by double digits over DeSantis.
