‘Donald Trump favored to win against Joe Biden in next presidential race’

A new opinion poll suggests that more Americans believe former President Donald Trump would emerge victorious over President Joe Biden if the two were to face off in the 2024 presidential election. The Economist-YouGov poll, which asked participants to predict the outcome irrespective of their personal preferences, found that 44% of respondents anticipate a Trump win, while 35% foresee Biden as the victor. The remaining 21% were unsure of the outcome.
The poll, conducted between January 7 and 9, surveyed 1,593 adult US citizens and has a margin of error of 3.2 points. It revealed an even split in support among the participants, with 43% backing Biden and an equal percentage supporting Trump.
Additionally, the poll indicated a strong belief among respondents in Trump’s potential success in the Republican primary. A notable 57% of those surveyed expect Trump to be the GOP nominee, including a significant 76% of Republicans.
Meanwhile, Trump’s decisive victory in the Iowa caucuses where he garnered 51 percent of the Republican vote, significantly outpacing competitors Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley, positions him strongly for the Republican nomination and a potential rematch with President Joe Biden in November.
Trump’s triumph in Iowa, described as the largest in the history of the state’s caucuses, sets the stage for the next critical face-off in New Hampshire. Here, the 77-year-old former president could potentially land a decisive blow in the race.
“At this point, it’s really time for everyone, the whole country, to unite,” Trump expressed in a victory rally in Iowa, adopting a notably more reconciliatory approach towards his Republican adversaries.
Despite facing a civil case and 91 criminal indictments on various charges, including allegations of subverting the 2020 elections, Trump has managed to use these challenges to fuel his campaign narrative, portraying himself as a victim of a covert “deep state” operation.
Leading the Republican polls for over a year, Trump’s performance in the harsh winter conditions of Iowa has been a testament to his enduring influence and potential for a remarkable return to the White House.
