Trump Beats Biden by 8 Points in Hypothetical Election Matchup, Poll Shows
More voters would chose Trump in presidential matchup
Should the presidential election be held today, President Donald Trump would lead Democrat Joe Biden by eight percentage points, according to a new hypothetical presidential matchup.
The new Center for American Greatness poll shows that more voters would choose Trump over Biden if they could vote today.
The national poll was conducted from December 17 to December 19 among 750 registered voters.
Respondents were presented with a series of questions about Biden’s performance in office.
They were also asked about a hypothetical matchup with Trump.
Just 41 percent said they would vote for Biden if the election were held today, compared to forty-nine percent of respondents who said they would vote for Trump.
An additional ten percent said they had no opinion or were undecided.
The survey also asked voters whether they would prefer Republicans or Democrats to control the U.S. House of Representatives.
In that scenario, 48 percent of respondents would like to see Republicans control the House.
42 percent said they'd rather see Democrats in control.
The numbers were also similar when polled about control of the U.S. Senate: 51 percent of respondents would like to see Republicans control the Senate, compared to 42 percent supporting Democrat control.
The poll’s margin of error is +/- 3.6 percent.
In addition, voters were questioned about Biden’s job performance.
A massive 58 percent of voters disapprove of Biden’s job performance.
Conversely, just 41 percent of voters approve of the job the president is doing.
"Almost a year into the Biden presidency, no one should be surprised that a large majority of Americans are unhappy with him," American Greatness wrote.
"The past year has seen a string of failures by Biden and his team.”
