NBC Survey Shows Trump Leading Biden Across Multiple Metrics

US

A new national survey from NBC News has found that former President Donald Trump is leading President Biden across nearly all metrics in a hypothetical 2024 presidential election race.

  • NBC: “Biden trails [Trump] on major policy and personal comparisons, including by more than 20 points on which candidate would better handle the economy. And Biden’s deficit versus Trump on handling immigration and the border is greater than 30 points… The poll also shows Trump holding a 16-point advantage over Biden on being competent and effective, a reversal from 2020, when Biden was ahead of Trump on this quality by 9 points before defeating him in that election.”
  • Per the report, Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt said the findings reveal “a presidency in peril... What is most concerning is the erosion of Biden’s standing against Trump compared to four years ago... On every measure compared to 2020, Biden has declined. Most damning, the belief that Biden is more likely to be up to the job — the chief tenet of the Biden candidacy — has evaporated.”
  • GOP pollster Bill McInturff said: “It is hard to imagine a more difficult set of numbers before a re-election.”
