Biden tops Trump by 4 points in new poll.
President Biden leads former President Trump by four points, according to a hypothetical general election poll released Wednesday.
In a Quinnipiac University research participants stated they were more inclined to support Biden than Trump who received 44% of the vote. While Biden’s support is unchanged since the last poll in late May, Trump’s support has dropped by two points.
The change is little for the former president in light of his second indictment. Last week, criminal charges against Trump for attempting against justice and mishandling sensitive information were brought against him. Trump was arraigned in Miami on Tuesday.
“A federal indictment. A court date on a litany of charges. A blizzard of critical media coverage. The negative impact on the former President’s standing with voters? Not much at all,” Quinnipiac analyst Tim Malloy noted.
The survey additionally showed that Biden is more popular than Trump. 42 percent of individuals did not think highly of Biden while 52% did. Trump scored 37% favorably and 59% negatively in the poll it was discovered.
Support for Biden is strongest among Black and Hispanic respondents, and is stronger with women than with men. Older respondents were also more likely to back Biden in the survey.
The president’s favorability among registered voters was a four point increase from the May poll.
Among Democrats, Biden held a sizable 57 point lead over his closest competition: Robert Kennedy, Jr. Among Republicans, Trump held a 22 point lead in the poll over his strongest primary opponent, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
