Trump would hammer Biden OR Harris in 2024, new poll shows

He’s still got it! Trump would hammer Biden OR Harris if he was up for election against either of them in 2024, new poll shows

  • A new Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey released on Friday showed that voters prefer Donald Trump to Joe Biden or Kamala Harris
  • The pollsters spoke to 1,838 registered voters from February 15-16, and asked them who they preferred
  • In a hypothetical eight-way Republican primary, 37 percent would vote for Trump; 19 percent would back Ron DeSantis; and seven percent Nikki Haley 

Donald Trump would beat Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in 2024, according to a new poll released on Friday.

Trump, who announced his candidacy in November, would win 46 percent of the vote, while Biden would gain 41 percent, the survey showed.

The former president would perform even better against Harris, winning 49 percent of support compared to Harris’s 39 percent.

The poll was carried out for The Hill on February 15-16 by a team for Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll.

The pollsters spoke to 1,838 registered voters.

Trump, 76, also defeated other Republican rivals in the poll.

Only Nikki Haley has so far declared her intention to challenge him, but in an eight-way race, Trump beats them all.

He won 37 percent of support, with 19 percent backing the Florida governor Ron DeSantis – who is yet to enter the race, but widely expected to do so in the spring.

Haley would win seven percent, making her third in the list – a rise in the ranks, thanks to a campaign launch which has been considered relatively successful.

Haley took a swipe at Trump during her 2024 kickoff on Wednesday when she didn’t say his name a single time during her speech. 

Trump was quick to fire off a sarcastic response, mocking her on his Truth Social platform for ‘polling at 1 percent’ and reminding her she promised not to run against him in 2021 because he is ‘the best President in my lifetime’. 

On Thursday, the Republican National Committee announced they would officially unveil next week, at their annual meeting, a plan to block Republican presidential candidates from the debate stage this summer if they do not sign a pledge to support the ultimate presidential nominee.

The proposal sets up a potential clash with Trump, who has raised the possibility of leaving the Republican Party and launching an independent candidacy if he does not win the GOP nomination outright.

While RNC officials and Trump aides downplay that possibility, such a move could destroy the GOP’s White House aspirations in 2024 and raise existential questions about the party’s future.

‘After the primary, it is imperative to the health and growth of our Republican Party, as well as the country, that we all come together and unite behind our nominee to defeat Joe Biden and the Democrats,’ RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel said in a statement to The Associated Press when asked about the loyalty pledge.

As many as a dozen Republicans are expected to enter the 2024 presidential contest as the GOP braces for an all-out civil war in the months ahead.

Much of the party is eager to move past Trump and his divisive politics, but in reality, Republican leaders have few, if any, tools to control the former president given his popularity with the GOP’s most passionate voters.

RNC leaders are hopeful that a loyalty pledge, while ultimately unenforceable, would generate some shared commitment to unity, albeit a fragile one, as the presidential primary season takes off.

‘President Trump is the undisputed leader of the Republican Party and will be the nominee,’ said Steven Cheung, Trump campaign spokesman.

‘There is nobody who can outmatch President Trump’s energy or the enthusiasm he receives from Americans of all backgrounds.’
