We juts hope the “hypothetical 2024 matchup: Biden vs Trump” would not happen and spare us from the nightmare. But time is short, we can only keep our fingers crossed that both Biden and Trump will not be on the ballot on November 8, 2024.
Because of Trump’s legal problems, he has to stay in the race and hope he can prevail, so that he does not have to go to jail. As of now, all polls show that Trump is beating Biden comfortably. Biden will suffer unprecedented humiliation next year this time: he loses the general election to a convicted criminal. And Trump will “kick” him out of the White House.
Then Trump, by defeating Biden, will destroy the US democracy, according to Biden.
On the other hand, the poll also shows that almost any democratic candidate, other than Biden, can beat Trump with ease. So, Biden can save the nation as well as his personal honor by nominating a democratic candidate for the 2024 general election. It is Biden’s choice, but time is short.
Biden job approval hits new low, Trump takes lead in hypothetical 2024 matchup: WSJ poll

President Biden’s approval rating has hit a new low, as he also trials his top Republican challenger, former President Trump, in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup ahead of the 2024 presidential election, according to a new Wall Street Journal poll.
The poll, published Saturday, found 37 percent of respondents approve of the job Biden is doing as president, while 61 percent of respondents think otherwise.
When asked about a potential Biden-Trump 2024 rematch, 47 percent of respondents said they’ll cast their vote for Trump, while 43 percent of those surveyed said they’ll vote for Biden.
Thirty-seven percent of respondents said they would vote for Trump if the 2024 election were held today, while 31 percent of those surveyed said they would vote for Biden, according to the poll.
Forty-nine percent of respondents said that Trump-implemented policies have helped them personally, while 37 percent of those surveyed said Trump-implemented policies have hurt them personally.
In contrast, 53 percent of respondents said that Biden-implemented policies have hurt them personally, while 23 percent of those surveyed think otherwise, the poll said.
The new poll comes as Trump, 77, is still seen as the leading front-runner in the GOP presidential primary field amid the slew of legal battles he’s currently facing.
Biden announced plans earlier this year to run for reelection in 2024, amid weeks of speculation.
The Wall Street Journal poll was conducted from November 29 to December 4 with a total of 1,500 respondents participating in the survey. The poll’s margin of error was 2.5 percentage points.
Trump leads Biden in new 2024 poll; gets higher marks on economy, border security and crime

WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden may be losing support among voters heading into 2024, a new poll finds, as a hypothetical matchup with Donald Trump shows the former president leading by several percentage points.
An exclusive Wall Street Journal poll found that Trump would lead Biden by 4 percentage points, 47% to 43%, if only those two candidates were on the ballot. Adding five possible third-party and independent candidates to the mix, Trump leads Biden by 6%.
The poll also found 49% of voters think Trump’s policies have helped them, while only 23% of voters think Biden’s policies have helped them. Voters think Trump would be better able to handle the economy, inflation, crime, border security and the war between Israel and Hamas, while Biden is better able to handle abortion and tone in politics.
And border security seems to be the biggest issue where Biden falters, with Trump leading against him by 30%.
“If this race is about policy and performance, then Donald Trump has a significant advantage,” Republican pollster Tony Fabrizio, who works for a Trump super PAC, told the Wall Street Journal. “If this race is about temperament and character, things like that, then Biden has an advantage.”
However, one of Trump’s liabilities is his indictments in four criminal cases, David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center, previously told USA TODAY.
