Last week a new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey showed that while voters are split on whether President Donald J. Trump should run for the White House in 2024, most would vote for him if the other choice was either President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris.
Forty-eight percent of likely U.S. voters think it would be a good idea for Trump to run. Forty-four percent said it would be a bad idea.
However, when asked about a Trump-versus-Biden rematch, Trump would win 51-41. It’s even a larger margin against Harris, with Trump winning 52-39.
With Biden bungling pretty much everything right now, expectations of a third Trump run have increased.
Seventy-four percent of Republicans believe it’s a good idea for Trump to consider another presidential campaign. Twenty-six percent of Democrats and 44 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.
According to the poll, about one-in-five Democrats say they would vote for Trump over either Biden or Harris if the next presidential election were held now.
Trump would receive 84 percent support from GOP voters with just 75 percent of Democrat voters saying they’d choose Biden. Harris receives just 71 percent from Democrat voters.
Trump receives 51 percent against either Biden or Harris from unaffiliated voters, with 14 percent saying they’d prefer someone else.
Interestingly, Biden and Harris do best among voters under 40, but still just 46 percent of them say they’d vote for Democrats against Trump.
