TRUMP ON TOP: New Poll Shows More Votes for Trump Than Biden if Election Held Today

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.17.22

And this is a New York Times poll we’re talking about, here.

A new poll from The New York Times and Siena College shows that, if the election were held today, former President Donald Trump would receive more votes than President Joe Biden; Biden’s approval rating has slipped below 40% once again.

From Fox News:

The poll of likely voters also showed Biden’s approval rating slipping below 40% for the first time since his boost in August. The NYT and Siena polled 792 registered voters in both English and Spanish over cellphones and landlines from October 9-12, reporting a margin of error of 4%. It found that the vast majority of Americans, 64%, believe the country is on the wrong track.

Trump narrowly beat out Biden in the election question, sporting 45% support to Biden’s 44%. Trump’s lead in that poll came despite 52% of the electorate saying they viewed him somewhat or very unfavorably.

“The NYT poll comes just one day after a Fox News poll found that just one-third of registered voters say they would re-elect Biden in 2024. Experts say the poll shows just how desperate Democratic voters are for a new candidate in the next presidential election,” Fox News reports.

“This is a rough measure that shows some Democrats hope for a better candidate and Republicans are firmly decided against Biden,” says Democratic pollster Chris Anderson who conducts the Fox News Poll with Republican Daron Shaw. “But it clearly understates Biden’s likely support in an election environment against an actual Republican candidate because we know most Democrats will consolidate behind their nominee, whoever that is.”
