(PatriotWise.com)- In the ten recent hypothetical match-ups polls between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, former President Trump was beating old Joe seven out of ten.
Biden defeated Trump in 2020 by 4.5 points, 51.4 percent to 46.9 percent. But the final Real Clear Politics average before the 2020 election had Biden over 7 points ahead of Trump, 51.2 percent to 44 percent.
Now in a hypothetical 2024 match-up, the Real Clear Politics average has Trump 2 points ahead of Biden, 44.5 percent to 42.5 percent. And in the ten of those hypothetical match-up polls, Trump topped Biden in seven of them.
Of course, hypothetical polling two years before the general election is about as reliable as a horoscope. A lot can change between the summer of 2022 and the summer of 2024.
But one thing is certain, the made-for-TV hearings from the January 6 select committee don’t seem to be having any effect on Trump’s standing with regard to a possible Biden/Trump rematch.
At the same time, it is worth noting that Trump leading a deeply unpopular president by only two points isn’t necessarily something to write home about.
Joe Biden’s Real Clear Politics average sits at a pathetic 37.7 percent approval and 56.6 percent disapproval, putting him nearly 19 points underwater.
When the incumbent president is less popular than head lice, polling ahead by a measly two-point margin isn’t the blowout one would hope for.
But this may have something to do with the lack of enthusiasm voters have for both Biden and Trump.
A recent Rasmussen survey found that Americans aren’t too keen on seeing either Joe Biden or Donald Trump running again in 2024. Only 29 percent of respondents think Joe Biden should run for reelection in 2024, while only 37 percent think Donald Trump should make another run for the White House.
