Hey there, my fellow conservatives! The latest New York Times/Siena College poll is in, and it’s got some fascinating insights into the potential 2024 rematch between President Biden and former President Trump. Brace yourselves, because it’s going to be one heck of a showdown!
According to the poll, both Biden and Trump are locked in a tight race, with both candidates receiving 43% support from registered voters surveyed. But wait, there’s more to the story! It turns out that both of them are dealing with high disapproval ratings. A whopping 54% of voters disapprove of Biden, while 55% disapprove of Trump. Ouch, those numbers are definitely not what they were hoping for!
Now, hold onto your hats, folks, because it’s about to get even more interesting! Trump is still the undisputed leader among GOP primary voters, with a strong 54% support, while his closest competitor, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, is way behind at a mere 17%. Trump’s base is standing firm and showing him some serious love!
However, it’s not all smooth sailing for the former president. Trump is facing criminal indictments over allegations of illegally keeping classified documents after leaving the White House, making him the first president ever to face federal indictment. But hey, Trump is not backing down! He has pleaded not guilty and is ready to fight back!
But wait, there’s more! A majority of voters (51%) think that Trump has committed serious federal crimes, and even more (53%) believe that his actions challenging the 2020 presidential election “went so far that he threatened American democracy.” Whoa, those are some serious accusations!
On the Democratic side, Biden may have a stronger lead in the primary with 64% support compared to his challengers, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Marianne Williamson. But don’t celebrate just yet, fellow conservatives! Turns out, there’s still a lot of uncertainty among Democratic voters. Half of them are on the hunt for a different candidate! They’re not entirely convinced about Biden.
Among those looking for an alternative, 39% are concerned about Biden’s advanced age of 80 years old. Another 20% are dissatisfied with his job performance, while 14% are just eager for something fresh. Only a tiny 5% are worried about his mental acuity.
Now, let’s talk about the White House’s response to concerns about Biden’s age. After Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s recent forgetful moment during a news conference, the press secretary stepped up to defend Biden. She pointed to his accomplishments in defeating Republicans at the ballot box since 2020 and his handling of the economy as proof of his leadership abilities.
But hold on a second! Nearly half of the voters rate the economy as “poor,” and a whopping 65% think the country is heading in the wrong direction under Biden’s watch. Looks like there’s a difference of opinion there!
So, my fellow conservatives, it’s time to buckle up and get ready for an electrifying battle in 2024! The race between Biden and Trump is far from settled, and there’s plenty of uncertainty ahead. Let’s stay engaged, informed, and united as we shape the future of our great nation!
