Trump Demolishes Biden by Double Digits in Poll on 2024 Presidential Race
The figures were released just a month after the 45th President held a rally in stae
Donald Trump is leading Joe Biden by double digits among Iowans in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, new polling shows.
The figures were released just a month after the 45th president held a rally in the early voting state.
Trump was ahead of Biden by 11 points, drawing the support of 51 percent among likely Iowa voters compared to Biden's 40 percent, the new Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll shows.
Just 4 percent said they would not vote for Trump or Biden.
Meanwhile, 5 percent said they were not sure which candidate they would support.
Trump's lead seems to be filed by independents, with 45 percent voting for him and 37 percent supporting Biden.
Both candidates gained majority support in their respective parties, with 95 percent of likely Democratic voters supporting Biden and 91 percent of likely Republican voters backing Trump.
Trump is still yet to officially launch a campaign for 2024, but there is much speculation as to whether he will or not.
"Trump won Iowa convincingly in 2020, and that's reflected in these data," said J. Ann Selzer, president of polling firm Selzer & Co., who interviewed 810 Iowa adults by telephone between November 7 and 10.
"If all you had in this poll was that Trump would defeat Joe Biden by 11 points, it might say everything is locked up."
Last month, Trump drew thousands to his rally in Iowa, which marked his first visit back since losing the 2020 presidential election.
Trump won Iowa by 8.2 percent by maintaining significant success in rural areas.
But Biden's approval rating is plummeting in Iowa, as poll numbers drop following a summer surge of the COVID-19 pandemic, his radical agenda, and the disastrous Afghanistan troop pullout.
Just 33 percent of Iowa adults approved of Biden's job performance in the poll.
But Trump is more popular in the state than ever before.
Around 53 percent of Iowan voters had a favorable view, and 45 percent had an unfavorable view of Trump, according to an October Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll.
Last week, an insider said Biden "might not" seek reelection in 2024.
Former Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) has revealed the aging politician may not run in the next election as his popularity has plummeted since taking office.
Dodd was speaking with the New York Times about how enthusiasm for Biden has reached such a nadir just one year after the 2020 election.
