They Keep Saying Trump Can’t Beat Biden in 2024 – This Poll Says He’s the ONLY One Who Can
According to a new poll released by Emerson College, Donald Trump is the only Republican candidate who leads President Joe Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup.
This is despite a constant barrage of moderate Republicans claiming Trump can’t win if he earns the GOP nomination.
The Emerson survey shows Trump with an absolute stranglehold on the nomination, currently leading Florida Governor Ron DeSantis by 30 points (55-25%).
Former Vice President Mike Pence comes in at 8% while recently announced Nikki Haley registers at just 5%.
In a separate polling question involving only candidates who have actually announced a 2024 run, Trump (79%) trounces Haley (18%) and Vivek Ramaswamy (4%).

Trump v Biden 2024
What will truly come as a surprise to the media, Democrats, and spineless Republicans is the fact that Trump is the only one of the potential 2024 challengers who is leading Biden in the poll.
In a hypothetical matchup, Trump leads the current President by 4 points (46-42%).
Despite consistent efforts to paint a different narrative, the Emerson poll for February is not an anomaly. Trump led Biden 44-41% in their January results.

In other hypothetical matchups for 2024, President Biden leads DeSantis (44-40%) and Haley (40-37%) though the number of undecideds rises in each case.
This poll comes on the heels of a report by Axios that outlines “Trump’s February bump.”
“After a shaky start to his presidential campaign, Trump has quietly found his footing over the last month,” Axios writes, noting that four new polls show him gaining support.

Stop With the ‘Trump Can’t Beat Biden’ BS
The latest news comes after a pair of once-prominent Republicans predicted Trump can not defeat President Biden.
Former House Speaker Paul Ryan predicted somebody other than Trump would win the nomination “because we know we’re going to lose with him.”

Former governor of New Jersey Chris Christie was able to push away from the Golden Corral buffet long enough to offer a similar analysis.
He was recently asked by ABC’s Jonathan Karl: “Can Trump beat Biden?”
“I don’t think so,” replied Christie.
The comments prompted Trump to describe Ryan as a “loser” and Christie as “sloppy.”
The Emerson College poll is one of the few that shows President Biden’s approval rating above water, actually hitting the 50% mark in February.

Democrat respondents also believe Biden should run in 2024 – with 71% indicating he should be the nominee for their party.
That represents a 13% jump from the previous month. Meaning Democrats seem perfectly content with the current devastation of the American economy.
The economy was far and away the most important issue amongst voters in this poll (41%).
