Former President Donald Trump is still dominating Republican primary polls and leading a hypothetical rematch with President Joe Biden as Biden now trails behind three GOP candidates, according to the latest polling average from Real Clear Politics.
Trump’s lead in the Republican primary stands at 48 points as of Wednesday morning. He holds 61% of the party’s support, according to the Real Clear Politics average of national polling. The former president also continues to post polling leads against Biden, who has dipped recently and is facing some of the lowest approval ratings of his presidency. Trump currently leads Biden 46.7% to 44.7%.
Biden’s polling slump is reflected in his numbers against Republican candidates Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis as both lead the president in a hypothetical 2024 matchup. Haley — the former South Carolina governor and U.S. ambassador to the U.N. under Trump — is leading Biden by nearly five points, according to the RCP average. The latest poll from The Messenger/HarrisX showed Haley leading by an impressive 10 points, while a Fox News poll from a month ago had similar results, with Haley ahead of Biden by 11 points.
