New Survey Shows Trump Blowing By Biden On Key Issues Heading Into 2024


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

A major new poll spells more bad news for President Joe Biden while giving a huge new boost to his most likely 2024 opponent, former President Donald Trump.

“A new Marquette Law School Poll national survey finds a close presidential race: former President Donald Trump receives 51% and President Joe Biden gets 48% among registered voters, while Biden has a 51% advantage over Trump’s 49% among likely voters—those who say they are certain they will vote in the presidential election,” the survey said.

However, where Trump excels is in other areas like voter enthusiasm. Also, Biden’s policies are dramatically hindering his ability to perform better in the survey.

Per the Interactive Polls account on the “X” platform, here is a summary of the polling results:

Marquette Poll: Who would handle the following issues better?

The Economy: Trump 52% (+24) Biden 28%

Border Security: Trump 52% (+24) Biden 28%

Inflation: Trump 50% (+23) Biden 27%

Creating Jobs: Trump 49% (+19) Biden 30%


Foreign Relations Trump 43% (+5) Biden 38%

Medicare and SSA Biden 39% (+2) Trump 37%

Abortion policy Biden 43% (+9) Trump 34%

Climate change Biden 44% (+20) Trump 24%

Notably, in most national surveys of issues that are the most important to Americans, ‘climate change’ and ‘abortion’ regularly rank far below other issues like ‘jobs,’ ‘the economy,’ ‘inflation,’ and ‘border security.’

Newsmax added:

Trump draws a majority 51% support among registered voters to just 48% for Biden, but Trump has an 8-point lead (54%-46%) among those “very enthusiastic” and a 6-point lead (53%-47%) among those “somewhat enthusiastic,” according to the poll.

Biden flips the results and leads Trump by 8 points (53%-45%) among those “not too/not at all enthusiastic” to vote, perhaps putting the age-old emphasis on voter turnout.

“Trump has long argued mail-in balloting, pushed by Democrats, helped outdo the voter enthusiasm component of presidential elections, giving Biden more votes than he would have otherwise received with in-person voting during the 2020 presidential election,” the report continued, adding that Newsmax TV contributor Dick Morris has pointed out that Trump had more voters show up on Election Day in 2020, but Biden won the mail-in vote.

Meanwhile, the full GOP presidential primary polling results from the survey were as follows:

Trump 56%

Florida GOP Gov. DeSantis 12%


Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley 6%

Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy 4%

Former Vice President Pence 4%

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., 2%

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie 1%

And While DeSantis has slipped in this latest Marquette survey, he still “maintains an identical majority and 3-point lead (51% to 48%) in a head-to-head hypothetical matchup against Biden,” Newsmax reported.


A separate poll found even better news for Trump.

A leading pollster some consider to be the top in the nation has predicted a potential “electoral landslide” for Trump next year as Biden continues to slide in approval ratings and “Bidenomics” continues to eat into ordinary Americans’ paychecks.

In an interview with radio host Michael Patrick Leahy, pollster John McLaughlin discussed what current state and national polling mean, what polls to watch, and how to analyze new polling as it comes out in the months ahead.

McLaughlin began by noting that the more legal trouble Trump faces, the more his polling numbers rise.

“We see, apparently, every time the Department of Justice or a state left-wing district attorney indicts Donald Trump, his poll numbers go up,” Leahy began. “I’m looking at the Morning Consult poll today. Just came out: Trump 61; DeSantis 13; Haley 7; Ramaswamy 7; Pence 5; Christie 3; Scott 1; Burgum 1. Trump by 48 points.

“Morning Consult has Trump and Biden tied, but I’ve seen Trump up 9 in the Washington Post poll; and Trump up 3 in another. The polls say it’s looking good for Donald J. Trump,” he added.

He went on to predict that Trump could win by an “electoral landslide” given his current and improving advantages in a handful of swing states where Biden and his policies are polling underwater.
