    A national Emerson College poll released in September gave Trump a slim edge over Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup. Favored to win 47 percent to 46 percent, Trump's edge was within the poll's margin of error of 2.7 percentage points, which indicated that if the election were held today, it could go in either candidate's favor.
    While Trump had low approval ratings throughout his presidency, it's possible voters are seeing him in a different light after he left office. His approval rating in Iowa is higher than it was during the entire course of his presidency, according to a Des Moines Register poll, and a Harvard CAPS-Harris poll in September found voters were drawn more to Trump than they were to Biden.

    Could Donald Trump beat Joe Biden, Kamala Harris in 2024? What the polls show

    Voter turnout will be key I suspect if Trump runs again.
    Of course polls. :rolleyes: Don't seem to be a good indicator of much.

    Oh good. So these people who never got over their candidate losing can just paste a 4 over the 0 on campaign sign in their front yard...

    I'll be surprised if Biden chooses to run for a 2nd term. So it would be Trump vs Harris, and I think Harris would win.

    I have an idea. Let's not talk about elections until they actually come up.

    Wouldn't that defeat the entire purpose of election campaigns?

    Hopefully he'll be behind bars before then. I don't think inmates can run for president.

    I don't think there is anything in the rules against it.
    Of course he'd have to win but then we could really test the idea of whether the POTUS could pardon themselves.

    Wasn't congress trying to pass some measure that would prevent Trump from being president again?

    Yeah. Such as this last one. Trump had it in the bag until the covid messed up everything during an election year.
    There are far better predictors of elections than hypotheticals a not even half way to the end of Biden's first term.

    If you think beating Trump would be a sure thing, I would think again before getting getting cocky. America already elected him once.

    It's like celebrating a cancer that has gone into remission. Only after 5 years can you claim to be free of the threat of death from it. Here's to 2025 and being free of that malignant orange tumor! Here's to health and happiness in 2024!

    Trump in 2024? Well, Americans haven't been taking good care of their democracy, so I don't suppose they'll miss it all that much.

    Eugene Debbs ran for President from Prison for the Socialist Party in 1920. So it might be possible. :confused:

    And he lost when an incumbent has the best chance of winning. Won't happen. But I can surely encourage the herd to support him.
