A new poll essentially flips the script for the upcoming presidential race and projects President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris as the winner if the race were held today despite numerous polls that have shown that voters are distancing themselves from the pair.
A YouGov poll published last week claimed that Biden would scrape by with 41 percent of the vote, representing a two-point lead over former President Donald Trump if the election were held today, although 20 percent of voters were undecided.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis apparently only garnered 36 percent of the 1,557 respondents’ support compared to Biden’s 40 percent. Given those options, nearly a quarter of respondents were undecided in the poll that was conducted between July 28 and August 1.
Harris also had a slight edge over Trump, with 42 percent signaling they would support her over the 41 percent that would support the former president. Respondents were not asked about a Harris/DeSantis matchup.
POLL: Most Republicans (57%) say Trump would be a stronger candidate now than he was in 2020, while just 26% of Democrats say the same about Biden

Yahoo News writer Andrew Romano attempted to dissect the results as a “growing aversion to both parties presidential front runners.”
“In a striking expression of the profound pessimism and polarization currently afflicting U.S. politics – as well as a growing aversion to both parties’ presidential front-runners – a plurality of registered voters now say it would be ‘the worst thing that could happen’ if either President Biden (39%) or former President Donald Trump (41%) were to win the White House again in 2024,” he wrote.
Pollsters also asked, “In your opinion, the reelection of either president would be…” and given a choice between “Mostly bad” (71.8%), “Mostly good” (3.8%), “A mix of good and bad” (16.7%) and “I’m not sure” (7.7%), a word salad that indicated to many readers that perhaps it was indicative of the motives of the survey.
That’s got to be the most stupid survey question ever asked in the history of fake news. One can’t even imagine the way you’ll spin the results. We’re living a freaking 🤡🌍

A Suffolk University survey last month also revealed a potential problem for conservatives in the upcoming midterm election with Democrats edging out Republicans 44 to 40 percent.
However, a poll published late last month by CNN/SSRS had completely different results. Left-leaning voters “Who do you think the Democratic Party should nominate as the party’s candidate for president in 2024?”

Only 25 percent agreed that Biden should win the 2024 nomination, and three-quarters of respondents said Democrats should “Nominate a different candidate in 2024.”
Despite the polls, conservative voters who attended the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this weekend were amped up about Trump potentially moving into the White House again in 2024.

When asked who should be at the top of the Republican ticket, one attendee was decisively in favor of Trump.
“He’s the only one that can make America great again,” the person said.
Although the potential playing field favored Trump and DeSantis, Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) got some love as well.
“Trump, DeSantis, Cruz, I would take any of them,” another person said.
