Former President Trump is narrowly beating President Biden in a 2024 matchup, according to a new poll.
The new Yahoo News/YouGov poll found that Trump has a slight edge over the sitting president in a hypothetical rematch, leading Biden 44 to 42 percent. However, the poll also found that 9 percent of respondents were unsure of who they would vote for and another 5 percent said they were not planning to vote at all.
When asked whether Biden’s age or Trump’s criminal charges were a bigger problem when it came to their fitness for the presidency, respondents were largely split in the poll.
About 42 percent said Trump’s criminal charges were the bigger problem, while 41 percent said Biden’s age was. Just 8 percent said neither was a problem and 9 percent said they were not sure.
Biden’s age remains a concern among voters, including those within his own party, as he approaches his 81st birthday next week. Seventy-three percent of Democrats said it was a problem when it came to his fitness for the presidency.
When asked about Trump’s criminal charges, just 40 percent of Republicans said they would be a problem for the former president.
A majority of respondents, 60 percent, also said that Biden was not fit to serve another term. Respondents were more split on whether Trump is fit enough to serve another term in the White House, with 49 percent saying he was not and 38 percent saying he was.
The poll was conducted among 1,584 adults Nov. 9 to 13 and has a margin of error of 2.8 percentage points.
Other polls have concluded with similar results. Quinnipiac University’s latest poll released Wednesday showed Trump with 48 percent support for his White House bid — a slight lead over Biden’s 46 percent support.
Stack Data Strategy also released a model this week that projected Trump would beat Biden if the election were held today, with Biden winning the popular vote but losing the electoral college.
