Biden vs. Trump — the sequel. You may not like it, but it grows more likely by the day

September 10, 2023

It’s hard to ignore just how many Americans would prefer not to face another election between President Biden and former President Trump. Nationwide, the picture is much the same: The latest CNN poll, released Tuesday, showed Trump with support from 52% of Republican voters. Nationally, a survey this week by Morning Consult found that 76% of Democrats said they would back Biden in their state’s nominating contest. In the CNN poll, two-thirds of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents said Biden’s renomination was very or extremely likely. It’s not just that Trump has a huge lead in polls of Republican voters.
