Voters favor former President Donald Trump over President Joe Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, an Emerson College survey released this week found.
The national survey, taken August 30 to September 1, 2021, among 1,200 registered voters, presented respondents with a series of hypothetic 2024 matchups.
The former president slightly edges out Biden in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup, 47 percent to 46 percent.
The survey also presented respondents with a head-to-head matchup between Biden and Never Trumper Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT). In that scenario, Biden takes a commanding lead, 42 percent to Romney’s 23 percent.
Florida. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) fared better than Romney, coming within 12 points of the president, but neither performed as well as Trump.
