Trump Expands Lead as New Poll Shows Supporters Jumping Off White House’s Sinking Ship

By Robert Cunningham, updated on November 24, 2023

A recent poll showing former President Donald Trump potentially regaining his position is stirring the political waters.

According to a new Emerson College Poll, Trump leads President Biden by 4% in a potential 2024 election matchup, signifying a possible shift in the political landscape.

The poll, which surveyed 1,475 registered voters between November 17 and 20, shows Trump leading Biden by 47% to 43%. This figure falls within the poll's 2.5% margin of error. Biden's support, previously at 45%, has dipped to 43% since last month, while Trump's support remains steady at 47%.

Biden's Waning Support

President Biden's current approval rating stands at 38%, with a disapproval rate of 50%. This is the lowest approval rating for Biden this year, a concerning sign for his administration and supporters.

More alarmingly for the Biden administration is the erosion of support among crucial demographic groups. Comparing the current situation to the 2020 election, there is a noticeable decline in support from Black voters, Hispanic voters, women, and younger voters under 50. This demographic shift could have significant implications for the upcoming election.

Another point of concern for the Biden camp is how these trends are reflected in other polls. The NBC News poll, for instance, echoes the findings of the Emerson College poll, showing Trump in the lead. This consistency across different polls suggests a broader shift in the political landscape rather than an anomaly in data.

Swing States Showing a Shift Toward Trump

Swing states, often the decisive battlegrounds in U.S. presidential elections, also show signs of a shift. A recent poll by Stack Data Strategy indicates Trump is leading in key swing states such as Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. These states, critical in any election strategy, were instrumental in Biden's 2020 victory but now seem to be swinging back in favor of Trump.

Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling, offered insights into this trend:

"The president’s disapproval has stayed the same this month, while his approval has dropped four points. The president’s approval is the lowest it has been this calendar year, but similar to what it was this time last year when his approval was at 39 percent."

A news release from Stack Data Strategy stated:

“The poll shows Trump on course to win back four key swing states that Biden won in 2020: Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. All of these states were won by Trump in the 2016 election before flipping to Biden in the 2020 election, preventing Trump from the same path to the White House. These states are vital for Trump’s re-election.”

Political Implications of the Polling Data

The implications of this shift in voter sentiment are significant for both political parties. For Republicans, it signals a strong possibility of reclaiming the White House, especially if these trends continue or amplify. For Democrats, it's a wake-up call to reassess and realign strategies to regain lost support, particularly among key demographics.

The timeline of these events is crucial to understanding the evolving political narrative. The Emerson College poll was conducted from November 17-20, with the results released on November 23. This was followed by the release of the Stack Data Strategy poll on November 24, providing a broader view of the political landscape.

These developments come at a time when multiple polls, released throughout November 2022, have consistently shown a decline in Biden's popularity. This trend raises questions about the effectiveness of the current administration's policies and their impact on public opinion.

Conclusion

  • The recent Emerson College poll shows Trump leading Biden by 4% in a hypothetical 2024 election matchup.
  • Trump's support remains steady at 47%, while Biden's has dipped from 45% to 43%.
  • When third-party candidates are introduced into the equation, Trump's lead extends further.
  • Biden's approval rating stands at 38%, with his disapproval at 50%.
  • Biden has lost significant support among key demographic groups since 2020.
  • Trump is leading in the key swing states of Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
