As Biden continues to hint at a 2024 re-election bid, new polls show that he should probably sit this one out.
In a hypothetical rematch with President Trump, Biden gets trounced in the great state of Iowa. In fact, Trump has an early 11 point lead in the Hawkeye State according to a recent poll.
“In the new survey, 51% of likely Iowa voters in the 2024 election would vote for Trump, a Republican, while 40% say they would vote for Biden, a Democrat. Another 4% say they would not vote for either candidate, and 5% are not sure.,” reports the Des Moines Register.
“The poll comes as Biden’s approval rating among Iowans sits near its lowest ebb since he took office in January. Meanwhile, Iowans view Trump more favorably than they did while he was in office, according to a September Iowa Poll,” they add.
According to the report, Trump’s big lead comes from increasing support from independents.
“Biden wins support among 95% of Democrats — slightly better than the 91% Trump earns among Republicans. But independents favor Trump by 8 percentage points, 45% to 37%,” they add.

According to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, Biden fully intends to run again in 2024 (somehow).
