Biden Gets Bad News; Trump Gets Good

( – Most Americans deem President Joe Biden as “weak.” At the same time, most view his likely rival in the 2024 presidential election, former President Trump, as a “strong” leader,” a new poll has found.

According to a survey by YouGov and The Economist, cited by Breitbart News, close to two-thirds of US voters – or 60% – think Biden is “weak” in his leadership abilities, and only 39% think the opposite.

What’s even worse for 80-year-old Biden, 42% of American voters think he is a “very weak” leader, and only 14% consider him a “very strong” one.

Conversely, 54% of those polled said Donald Trump was a “strong” leader, while 45% said the opposite.

In another boost for the 45th president of the United States, the survey found 32% of Americans think he is a “very strong” leader, while 33% called him “very weak.”

Trump’s results are robust among independent voters, whereas Biden performed disastrously in that demographic: more than half of independents – 54% – said he was a “strong” leader.

At the same time, 71% of independents declared that the current president was “weak” as a leader, and only 29% called him “strong.”

The YouGov-Economist survey asked voters whether they believed Biden and Trump cared about people like them.

The two most likely participants in the 2024 presidential elections received roughly equal results, with 45% saying Biden cared for people like them and 44% saying Trump did.

According to the poll, in a hypothetical matchup between Trump and Biden in a repeat of the 2020 election, the former would get 38% support, while the Democrat incumbent would be backed by 40%.

However, Biden scored 44% support among registered voters, compared to 40% for Trump.

When asked who would win if the two rivals were pitted against each other a second time, 41% of the respondents said it would be Biden, 37% chose Trump, and 22% said they were unsure.

The poll also found Trump’s lead over Ron DeSantis for the GOP nomination grew 10 points in July.

The survey polled 1,500 US voters, including 1,306 registered voters, between July 22-25. It had a margin of error of 2.8% for the entire sample, and 3% for the latter.
