Biden Losing to Trump in States Expected To Decide 2024 Election: Poll

October 19, 2023

President Joe Biden is trailing former president Donald Trump in states that are expected to decide the winner in the 2024 election, according to a new poll.

The poll, from Bloomberg News and Morning Consult, found that Trump beats Biden in nearly every swing state. The former president is up 47 percent to Biden's 43 percent among voters in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

Trump has a lead in five of those seven states, according to the poll. The former president tied with Biden in Michigan, while Biden led by 3 points in Nevada.

Trump's largest swing-state lead was in Georgia, where he polled 5 points ahead of Biden.

Voters' dissatisfaction with issues such as the economy, immigration, and world affairs under the Biden administration could be playing a role in Trump's advantage, Bloomberg reported:

A 51% majority of swing-state voters said the national economy was better off during the Trump administration, and similar numbers said they would trust Trump over Biden on the economy going forward, 49% to 35%.

Among independent voters, the chasm on trust to handle the economy is even wider, with a 22-point advantage for Trump.

Trump was more trusted on several other key issues, including immigration and infrastructure. He also fared better than Biden on US-China relations and the war in Ukraine – matters in the foreign relations arena that is often thought of as Biden’s forte.
