Newly released polling data shows who would win in a hypothetical matchup of President Joe Biden against former President Donald Trump.
Rasmussen Reports released the survey, which showed that most voters are not happy with Biden.
“A majority of voters have an unfavorable opinion of President Joe Biden, who would lose a rematch election with former President Donald Trump,” Rasmussen said.
The poll found Trump ahead by 6 points.
“A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that, if the election were held today, just 40% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote to reelect Biden, while 46% would vote for Trump,” Rasmussen said. “Another 10% would choose some other candidate in a Biden-Trump rematch. These findings are unchanged since January.”
Biden has seen his poll number steadily drop since taking office amid foreign policy difficulties in Afghanistan and Ukraine as well as soaring inflation and national debt.
“Fifty-three percent (53%) of voters have an unfavorable impression of Biden, including 43% who have a Very Unfavorable view of the president,” Rasmussen said. “Forty-one percent (43%) view Biden favorably, including 22% who have a Very Favorable impression of him. Forty-nine percent (49%) of voters view Trump favorably, including 29% who have a Very Favorable impression of the former president. Forty-seven percent (47%) view Trump unfavorably, including 38% who have a Very Unfavorable impression of him.”
