A new poll by Rasmussen Reports has shown that former President Donald Trump has surged ahead of President Joe Biden in the race for the 2024 presidential election. Trump has taken a seven-point lead over Biden, with 47% of respondents supporting the former president compared to just 40% for Biden.
What’s more surprising is that this lead comes despite Trump’s ongoing legal issues, which many believed would damage his chances of a political comeback. However, it appears that voters are unconcerned with the allegations against him and are instead focusing on his track record of delivering on his promises during his time in office.

Trump’s rise in popularity can be attributed in part to his appeal among women and independent voters, who have shifted their support towards him in recent months. In February, Biden held a narrow lead over Trump with 45% of the vote compared to 42%. But since then, Trump has announced his candidacy for 2024, and it seems that his campaign is gaining momentum.
This latest poll is a significant boost for Trump, who has faced significant criticism and opposition since leaving office in January. While it’s still early days in the race for 2024, it’s clear that Trump is a force to be reckoned with and should not be underestimated.
