Trump Crushing Biden With Massive Lead

(FeaturedHeadlines.com) – Former US President Donald Trump is beating current officeholder Joe Biden in Iowa polls ahead of the 2024 presidential election in November. Not only does Trump hold a lead over Biden in Iowa, but the lead is larger than in the 2020 race between the two presidential contenders.

According to a poll conducted in late February, Trump’s 15-point lead over Biden in Iowa is double his margin of victory in 2020. A plurality of poll respondents, 48%, said that they favor Trump in the matchup. One-third of respondents favored Biden, and 15% backed other candidates.

The poll also found that more than two-thirds of respondents, 69%, disapprove of Biden’s work as president. An even greater proportion, 79%, believe that the United States is on the wrong track.

Moreover, a majority of respondents, 56%, think that Biden—the eldest president in US history at 81 years old—is too old to serve another term in the White House. In comparison, 22% of respondents said that Trump, 77, is too old to serve again as president.

However, Biden’s campaign appears to be shrugging off voters’ concerns about his age. Polling is not necessarily reflective of how Americans vote, and it “consistently overestimates” Trump and underestimates Biden. Biden campaign communications director Michael Tyler said,

Tyler contends that the Trump campaign and the Republican Party are weak, divided, and running low on funds. Nevertheless, Biden continues to trail Trump in most significant polls leading up to Election Day. Neither candidate has officially secured their respective party’s nomination as of this writing, although both are presumptive nominees.

Whereas the Biden campaign maintains outward confidence in the president’s ability to win reelection, other Democrats are worried. Democratic US Senator Peter Welch said that some members of the party are “concerned” about Biden’s situation, noting that a matchup against Trump will be a “tough race” for him.

Both Biden and Trump will only get older in the buildup to Election Day in November, but that fact seems to have a greater impact on voters’ perception of Biden than it does Trump.
