Trump May Not Be The Only One Giving Biden a Run for His Money

( – A new survey shows that in hypothetical head-to-head scenarios, most people would not choose President Joe Biden over not just former President Donald Trump, the leading GOP candidate, but other Republican candidates as well.

Respondents were asked to choose between candidates in hypothetical head-to-head face-offs in the general presidential election against Biden. Remaining in the lead for the GOP primary race, Trump is still the top Republican candidate. Trump came in at 47% favorability in the survey, defeating Biden by one percent.

But Trump wasn’t the only GOP candidate whom respondents favored over Biden. Some of the Republicans challenging Trump for the nomination did better in the survey’s projections against Biden than Trump.

At 43%, Biden lost to former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley who came in at 49%. Both former Vice President Mike Pence and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott received 46% favorability to 42% for Biden. Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie defeated Biden by two points, 44% to 42%. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who polls put in second place for the GOP nomination, tied with Biden at 47% support. Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy lost to Biden by one point, which is technically a tie when considering the margin of error for the survey.

The survey was conducted during the last week of August for six days and included 1,503 respondents. The results indicate Biden may have some trouble in the general election no matter who he ends up running against. Even some in the Democratic Party are raising concerns about his candidacy, especially because of Biden’s advanced age and apparent cognitive issues.

Meanwhile, instead of tanking in the poll after being indicted four times this year, Trump holds his lead among all of the GOP candidates, and it seems likely that he will be the nominee unless the 14th Amendment case against him prevents him from continuing to run. Trump maintains he is innocent of all charges.
