Former US President Donald Trump has been polling ahead of Joe Biden in a hypothetical 2024 election opinion survey. President Joe Biden is facing a popularity squeeze over the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and rising inflation at home. Current polling suggests the Democrat would face a fierce battle to secure a second term in the White House. Trump has not officially declared his candidacy for the 2024 election though polling suggests the former US leader maintains strong levels of support.
Sky News Australia presenter Maddie Hale said: “Looking ahead into the future the 2024 election the Biden administration has seen another drop in confidence for a second term.
“RNW conducted a hypothetical election where Donald Trump and Joe Biden face off for the White House.
“It found Donald Trump was up in the polls and 44 percent and Joe Biden was sitting on 39 percent.
“Voters were asked if 2024 saw Kamala Harris running for the top job and she faced off against Donald Trump, who would they vote for.

It comes after US Vice-President Kamala Harris ducked a question from reporters on ambitions to take over the presidency from Joe Biden while on a diplomatic mission to France.
Ms Harris avoided answering how the trip to Paris might aid a future Harris presidency.
