A new national poll shows both President Donald trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSnatis beating Biden in potential presidential matchups for 2024.

“If the next presidential election were held today, and Biden were running against Trump, 50% would vote for Trump while 36% would vote for Biden,” Rasmussen reported today from its latest national poll. “The results would be somewhat closer with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as Biden’s Republican opponent. Forty-six percent (46%) would vote for DeSantis and 35% would vote for Biden if the election were held today, while another 11% say they would vote for someone else.”

Both pro-life advocates are leading Biden because his radical pro-abortion record and failure in the White House have made it so Americans give him horrible ratings overall.

A majority of voters think President Joe Biden shouldn’t seek reelection in 2024 as 61% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Biden should not run for a second term as president in 2024. Only 28% say Biden should seek reelection, while another 11% are not sure.

Biden’s numbers are underwater, per Rasmussen: “Forty-two percent (42%) of voters have a favorable impression of Biden, including 25% who have a Very Favorable opinion of him. Fifty-five percent (55%) have an unfavorable view of Biden, including 44% whose opinion of the president is Very Unfavorable.”

And Biden’s numbers with black Americans have tanked.

“While 64% of black voters said they have a favorable opinion of Biden, only 39% want him to run for re-election,” the Heartland Institute said in an analysis of the survey results. “Among Hispanics, just 43% have a favorable opinion and only 31% want him to run in the 2024 presidential election. Women voters – a key to Biden’s 2020 victory – have soured on the president, with only 26% wanting him to run again.”
