Trump Leads Rivals In Recent Poll

A new poll found that former President Donald Trump leads not only President Joe Biden but a number of other prospective Democratic Party candidates. The news also came after Biden received negative feedback regarding his age and mental health in a number of polls.

According to a recent Emerson College poll, the former president would lead Biden by a margin of 45-44%.

However, Trump’s lead expands if he is placed against other prominent members of the Democratic Party.

In a hypothetical match-up against Vice President Kamala Harris, he leads 46-43%. Furthermore, if Trump ran against California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), he would lead by ten points, 46-35%. Against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), Trump would lead 45% to her 33%.

The same poll also showed that Americans predicted that Trump would win in November. Among those asked, 45% said that he would win, while 42% predicted Biden.

The president received significant criticism since the release of special counsel Robert Hur’s report regarding whether or not he kept classified documents after his time as vice president. The special counsel found that Biden likely kept the documents intentionally.

However, Hur declined to prosecute the president, stating that he likely would present himself as a well-meaning, elderly and forgetful man.

Following the release of the special counsel’s report, the president gave a press event later that day. However, during the event, the president had several testy exchanges with reporters and had difficulties with some words. He also confused the nations of Egypt and Mexico.

A number of recent polls showed that a large majority of Americans said that Biden is not mentally fit to serve another term in the White House. Furthermore, the same polls showed that a majority of the population believed that Biden was too old for the job. If Biden is reelected, then he would leave office at 86.

He is currently the oldest president in American history.

Another recent poll found that more Americans rated the Trump administration above that of Biden’s tenure in office.
