Biden takes poll lead over Trump.

By Duncan Mil

March 21, 2024 - President Joe Biden has taken a sudden lead over Donald Trump, according to a poll commissioned by Florida Atlantic University (FAU). Three other polls have found Biden leading Trump.

The FAU and Mainstreet Research survey, conducted between March 15 and 17, found Biden leading Trump by two percentage points among likely voters, with 47 per cent saying they'd support the president if the election were held today and 45 per cent choosing Trump.

In FAU's February poll, only 41 per cent of voters backed the president, while 44 per cent supported Trump.

Three other polls released this week found him leading Trump. Surveys from Reuters/Ipsos, Civiqs/Daily Kos and Public Policy Polling for the Democratic super PAC Progress Action Fund all show Trump trailing Biden by one percentage point.

Biden, 81, improved his standings among every age group except young voters; however, Trump saw his support among those 18 to 34 jump 14 per cent in the past month.

Trump, 77, made gains among likely male voters, with 51 per cent saying they'd back him in November's election.
