US Election: Trump Maintains Steady Lead Over President Biden

Ahead of the November election in the United States, former President Donald Trump has continued to maintain his lead over current President Joe Biden according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS.

This is coming on the heels of Trump’s ongoing criminal trial in New York City.

The result of the poll indicated that most Americans are now saying that, looking back, Trump’s term as president was a success, while a broad majority says Biden’s has so far been a failure.

Trump’s support in the poll among registered voters remains steady at 49 per cent in a head-to-head matchup against Biden, while Biden’s stands at 43 per cent.

Looking back, 55 per cent of all Americans now say they see Trump’s presidency as a success, while 44 per cent see it as a failure.

Assessing Biden’s time in office so far, 61 per cent say his presidency thus far has been a failure, while 39 per cent say it’s been a success.

There is also an indication that Republicans now are more unified around the idea that Trump’s presidency was a success than Democrats are that Biden’s has been one.

This is as overall, 92 per cent of Republicans call Trump’s time in office a success, while just 73 per cent of Democrats say Biden’s has been a success so far. Among independents, 51 per cent say Trump’s presidency was successful, while only 37 per cent see Biden’s as a success.

There is some overlap in views of the two most recent presidents’ achievements, with 14 per cent of Americans saying they consider both to be failures, while 8 per cent say both are successes.

According to the poll also, about half of registered voters, 47 per cent,consider Biden’s presidency thus far to be a failure while saying Trump’s was a success. Only 30 per cent osay Biden’s has been successful and that Trump’s was not.

Meanwhile, negative views of Biden’s work in office have held for much of his presidency. In the new poll, 60 per cent disapprove of his handling of the job and 40 per cent approve, about the same as it’s been in CNN polling for more than a year.

Biden’s strongest issue approval ratings in the poll are also in negative territory, with 45 per cent approving of his handling of health care policy and 44 per cent approving his handling of student loan debt. While his worst issue approval rating – for his handling of the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza – yields 28 per cent approval to 71 per cent disapproval, including an 81 per cent disapproval mark among those younger than 35 and majority disapproval among Democrats (53 per cent).

Biden’s approval ratings for the economy (34 per cent) and inflation (29 per cent) remain starkly negative, as voters say economic concerns are more important to them when choosing a candidate than they were in each of the past two presidential contests.
