Trump takes 2024 lead as Joe Biden approval hits new low – WSJ Poll

Washington, Dec 9 (Prensa Latina) President Joe Biden’s approval rating has hit a new low, as he also trials his top Republican challenger, former President Donald Trump, in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup ahead of the 2024 presidential election, according to a new Wall Street Journal poll.

The poll, published Saturday, found 37% of respondents approved of the job Biden is doing as president, while 61% of respondents think otherwise.

When asked about a potential Biden-Trump 2024 rematch, 47% of respondents said they will cast their vote for Trump, while 43% of those surveyed said they will vote for Biden.

37% of respondents said they would vote for Trump whether the 2024 election were held today, while 31% of those surveyed said they would vote for Biden, according to the poll.

49% of respondents said that Trump-implemented policies have helped them personally, while 37% of those surveyed said Trump-implemented policies have hurt them personally.

In contrast, 53% of respondents said that Biden-implemented policies have hurt them personally, while 23% of those surveyed think otherwise, the poll said.

The new poll comes as Trump, 77, is still seen as the leading front-runner in the GOP presidential primary field amid the slew of legal battles he’s currently facing.

A Georgia grand jury indicted Trump, along with 18 of his allies, in August on charges tied to efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Trump, who announced his third presidential campaign last November, has been hit with three other indictments this year relating to his business dealings, handling of classified documents and actions following the 2020 election.

Biden announced plans earlier this year to run for reelection in 2024, amid weeks of speculation. Biden defeated Trump in the 2020 election.

The Wall Street Journal poll was conducted from November 29 to December 4 with a total of 1,500 respondents participating in the survey. The poll’s margin of error was 2.5 percentage points.
