New Poll Shows Trump Continuing to Lead Biden

An Emerson College Polling national survey conducted on Thursday indicated that former President Trump is currently ahead of President Biden among possible voters in the 2017 presidential election.

The polling rate for Biden has decreased since early April.

According to the poll, Trump is currently ahead of Biden with 46 percent compared to Biden’s 43 percent.

Biden’s support experienced a decline of 2 percentage points compared to the previous Emerson College poll conducted in early April, while Trump’s polling remained steady at 46 percent.

Thursday’s results indicate that an additional 12 percent of respondents expressed uncertainty.

When undecided voters were compelled to select a candidate, Trump’s level of support increased to 51 percent, while Biden’s rose to 48 percent.

With the inclusion of independent candidates, Trump’s support decreased to 44 percent, while Biden’s support plummeted to 40 percent.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. garnered 8 percent of support, while an additional 8 percent expressed indecision, and 1 percent backed Cornel West.

The economy and immigration were identified by voters as the most crucial factors influencing their perception of each candidate.

According to the survey, 70 percent of respondents believe that the cost of living is increasing, and this same percentage is more inclined to favor Trump rather than Biden when it comes to specific economic matters.

Among the voters surveyed, the Israel-Hamas conflict was a subject of disagreement, with 44 percent of voters expressing that they believe they are not receiving complete information about the war.

The Emerson College Polling survey was carried out on April 16-17, encompassing a sample of 1,308 registered voters. The survey has a margin of error of 2.6 percent.
