Former President Trump has been indicted four times and there is a possibility that officials in Arizona may initiate an investigation against him as well.

Nevertheless, a recent CNN/SSRS poll shows that there is no leader in a potential rematch between Biden and former President Trump.

The poll showed that Trump is leading Biden by one, and most frontrunner GOP primary candidates are either tied or leading Joe in a head-to-head match-up.

According to the CNN report, voters who responded to the poll expressed their decision on should Trump be the nominee would be based on their view of the former president.

From CNN:

Despite voters’ strong opinions toward Trump, Biden fares no better against any other Republican hopefuls tested in the poll. He is about even with Ron DeSantis (47% each), Mike Pence (46% Pence, 44% Biden), Tim Scott (46% Scott, 44% Biden), Vivek Ramaswamy (46% Biden, 45% Ramaswamy), and Chris Christie (44% Christie, 42% Biden). Haley stands as the only GOP candidate to hold a lead over Biden, with 49% to Biden’s 43% in a hypothetical match between the two. That difference is driven at least in part by broader support for Haley than for other Republicans among White voters with college degrees (she holds 51% of that group, compared with 48% or less for other Republicans tested in the poll).

As of now, Republican and Republican-leaning voters are more deeply driven to vote in 2024 (71% extremely motivated) than Democratic-aligned voters (61% extremely motivated).

So what’s dragging Biden down? It’s the economy, stupid.

The CNN poll was conducted between August 25-31, 2023, which means this occurred while Biden traveled throughout the country giving speeches on how great Bidenomics is.

According to the poll, the President has a 39% approval rating, and 58% believe that Bidenomics has made the economy worse.

It’s hard to beat an incumbent, but let’s just take the price of gasoline as an example.

Biden gambled last year after the war in Ukraine, and his policies caused gas prices to spike. The President used the strategic oil reserves to keep prices low while making some concessions with Venezuela to bring down prices.

Well, now the strategic oil reserves are low, the Saudis are cutting production, and Biden has canceled leases for drilling on US soil.

Speculators believe that the price of gas could skyrocket, imagine what the will do to people who are already struggling. Meanwhile, Biden is out there saying everything is great.

Polls are generally used (especially this far out) to generate a news story (Rush Limbaugh’s rule of thumb) but it’s bad news for Biden.
