Trump Leads Biden by Double Digits in Latest National Poll

Former President Donald Trump has surged ahead of President Joe Biden by double digits in a national matchup, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey released on Friday. This development marks a significant lead for Trump as the 2024 presidential race heats up.

The Rasmussen Reports survey shows Trump commanding 46 percent support in a matchup that includes third-party candidates, while Biden trails with 36 percent. Independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. garners nine percent, followed by independent candidate Cornel West with two percent, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein with one percent.

In a direct head-to-head comparison, Trump extends his lead over Biden to nine points, with 49 percent of likely voters favoring Trump against 40 percent for Biden.

Conducted on June 20 among 1,000 likely voters, the survey has a margin of error of ± three percent. The results indicate a growing discontent with the current administration, as reflected in several concurrent surveys.

Notably, a May Rasmussen Reports survey revealed that a majority of Democrats, 54 percent, would prefer to see Biden replaced by another candidate for their party. Additionally, another Rasmussen survey found that 57 percent of voters believe Biden is experiencing real mental decline. This perception has been exacerbated by viral videos purportedly showcasing Biden’s cognitive challenges, which the White House has dismissed as misleading.

In response to these allegations, Trump Campaign Communications Director Steven Cheung told Breitbart News, “The truth hurts. When the Biden campaign is confronted with that cold, hard reality, they offer ridiculous claims that anyone who clearly sees Biden acting like a brain-dead dope is part of some media-wide conspiracy.” He further criticized the Biden campaign’s strategy, attributing it to “junior staffers and interns” managing the campaign for a candidate who “can barely walk and talk at the same time.”
