Trump Now More Electable Than DeSantis Against Biden: Poll

Trump Now More Electable Than DeSantis Against Biden: Poll

A new poll has revealed that in a head-to-head match with Joe Biden, Donald Trump is actually more electable than Ron DeSantis.

The latest Harvard Harris poll of over 2,900 registered voters was published this week, showing how the public might vote in a number of potential races in the 2024 presidential election in November next year.

When asked to choose between 45th President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, 45% of voters said that they would back Trump in the race, with 41% supporting Biden, and 14% undecided. In a match-up with Kamala Harris, Trump would do even better, with 48% support.

Florida’s Ron DeSantis, who is widely expected to enter the presidential race, performed slightly worse than Trump in a head-to-head against Biden, only winning by 44%, with Biden remaining on 41%.

The same poll revealed that when it came to the Republican presidential primary, Trump gained 4 points of support, giving him a 50% hold on Republican voters, an outright majority, to DeSantis’ 24%. In a hypothetical match-up between the two, Trump would win by 56% to 44%.

Most voters believe that regardless of their opinions on Trump and DeSantis, that the former President is the most likely to win the nomination to begin with, as 57% of Republican and Independent voters think that Trump will take the 2024 mantle.

The poll results match those of another taken by Premise, which gave Trump a 6 point lead in a match-up against Biden. DeSantis, on the other hand, only scraped by with a 1 point lead, well within the margin of error. Other recent polls have shown DeSantis completely losing against Biden in a presidential race.

The idea that DeSantis is more “electable” than Trump appears to be one of the key points that supporters of the Florida Governor claim when arguing that Trump should not be the Republican presidential nominee in 2024, often saying he has “baggage” and is “too toxic.”
