Trump significantly ahead of Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, with 51% showing support

In the 2024 presidential election, President Joe Biden faces multiple challenges apart from his age. Recent polls suggest that record numbers of Americans claim to be worse off financially under his presidency, while former President Donald Trump enjoys higher popularity in a hypothetical 2024 matchup.

A recent ABC News/Washington Post poll reveals that only 15% of Americans say they are financially better off under Biden—a figure among the lowest of all presidents since Ronald Reagan. On the other hand, 44% of Americans express a decline in their financial situation since Biden took office, marking the highest percentage recorded since the question was initially posed in 1986.

Moreover, the same poll illustrates Trump's notable lead over Biden in the hypothetical 2024 matchup, with 51% supporting Trump and 42% supporting Biden. Trump's popularity has experienced an increase since leaving office, with 48% of Americans approving of his performance, as revealed in the latest poll.

The poll also highlights the perception of Biden's and Trump's age in relation to their eligibility for another term as president. It indicates that 74% of Americans consider Biden too old for another term, while 49% hold the same view about Trump.

Apart from age-related concerns and electoral prospects, Biden's approval rating of 37% is another area of struggle for him. His ratings on his handling of the economy and immigration are at career lows, with approval ratings of 30% and 23%, respectively.

This poll conducted by Langer Research Associates collected data from September 15-20, surveying 1,006 U.S. adults. The margin of error is estimated to be 3.5%.

Calls for Biden to not run in 2024 have emerged in light of the concerns about his age.
