Trump, Biden to receive 46% votes each in 2024 Presidential Elections
If voters had to vote between the current US President or his predecessor, statistics gave both candidates an equal outcome with an expected 8% of undecided voters.
In a recent poll conducted by the Wall Street Journal, statistics found that around 46% of voters are expected to vote for US President Joe Biden, with an equal share of voters for former US President Donald Trump, if the presidential election candidates were between the current president and his predecessor.
Away from the supporters, around 8% voted undecided, according to the survey.
If the situation was different and a third-party candidate were to be added, Trump would lead Biden by one percentage point, 40% against 39%, and the undecided voters would increase to 17%, according to the polls.
The survey was conducted from August 24-30 among 1,500 registered voters in the US.
Earlier this week, in a poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, President Joe Biden was considered “old” and “confused," and Donald Trump “corrupt” and “dishonest."
These are among the top adjectives Americans used to characterize the two in an open-ended question asked in the survey.
The majority of those polled mentioned Biden's old age, while Trump's main issue was his conduct.
After being indicted in four cases in a total of 91 criminal counts, the words most used to describe Trump were "corrupt", "crooked", and "bad", followed by "liar" and "dishonest". Meanwhile, 26% of respondents described Biden with words like "old" or "outdated", while 15% used words like "slow" and "confused".
The poll indicated that 24% of Americans approved of Biden's second run for president, while 30% approved of it for Trump.
Furthermore, 62% of Americans hold a negative impression of Trump, while 52% hold the same view of Biden.
The poll also illustrated familiar ideological divides. It found that Republicans are more likely than Democrats to use words like “slow” and “confused” to describe Biden (25% to 7%), as well as words like “corrupt” and “crooked” (14% to 0%) and “weak” or “unqualified” (9% to 2%).
Meanwhile, comments around Trump were more positive saying things like “strong” (11%) with mentions of America or patriotism (8%), along with mentions of the presidency or leadership (6%).
Democrats are more likely than Republicans to regard Trump as corrupt (25% to 4%) and dishonest (12% to 4%). Among the top terms used to characterize the former President by 7% of Democrats is racist.
