(PresidentialWire.com)- In a hypothetical 2024 contest, former President Donald Trump would be ahead of President Joe Biden, according to a Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll released this month.
“Who would you vote for if the 2024 presidential election were held today between Democrats Joe Biden and Republicans Donald Trump?” was the question posed to respondents in the study.
Biden is behind Trump by three points, 45 to 42 percent, in the poll. 13 percent are undecided.
In addition, a higher number of Americans (67%) than those who support Trump (57%) think Biden shouldn’t run for president in 2024.
Also, respondents are unimpressed with how Biden has conducted himself as president and believe he is gunning for “MAGA Republicans” to avoid discussing topics like inflation, immigration, and crime. The majority, 55 percent, are against Biden, while only 41% are in favor.
According to the survey, his support is also waning on a number of subjects, such as the economy, creating new jobs, and immigration.
At a rally in Ohio over the weekend, Trump criticized Democrat Senate candidate Tim Ryan (D-OH) for calling for the need to “fight and face” the MAGA movement after Biden’s enraged anti-MAGA speech. Trump has remained outspoken throughout Biden’s administration.
Trump said he often gets calls from people who say, ‘You know, Tim Ryan did a commercial. I think he really likes you.”
The former president assured the crowd that they don’t like each other.
“He’s been terrible,” Trump alleged.
Trump said that Tim Ryan is a radical left-winger who lies straight to your face, poses as one’s friend on policy issues, pretends to be moderate to get support, and then betrays everything those voters stand for.
“Ryan voted in favor of disastrous Biden policies because he is a radical leftist,” said Trump.
Trump said that despite the excellent policies for Ohio, while he was president, Ryan only sided with him 16 percent of the time.
He noted that Ryan has consistently voted with Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and the others for the past two years. “No matter what, or how bad it is, it doesn’t matter.”
