Biden, Trump deadlocked in new national survey

President Biden and former President Trump are deadlocked in a new national survey.

The Quinnipiac University poll found the two tied among registered voters at 46 percent.

It also found that even when other candidates for the presidency — Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Cornel West and Jill Stein — were included as options in the poll, Biden and Trump were still tied at 37 percent.

“In a country at odds over wars and the economy, abortion, immigration and the very survival of democracy, there is one current point of agreement: there’s no daylight between the candidates. It’s a tie,” Quinnipiac University polling analyst Tim Malloy said in a statement.

The poll also found more registered voters viewing Trump in a favorable light than Biden. Forty-one percent of registered voters in the poll said they had a favorable opinion of the former president, while 37 percent said they had a favorable opinion of the current president.

Another recent Quinnipiac poll found the two presidents close in North Carolina, a key battleground state in the 2024 presidential race. Among Tar Heel State voters, Trump received 48 percent of support and Biden got 46 percent.

Biden’s campaign has set its sights on flipping North Carolina in the next presidential election, after Trump won the state in the 2020 and 2016 elections. Last week, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) said he thinks Biden can win the state in this year’s election.

“I believe President Biden can win North Carolina,” Cooper said at Semafor’s World Economy Summit. “And the campaign obviously believes that because they are investing. And they are there.”

The Quinnipiac University poll was conducted Thursday through Tuesday. It featured 1,429 self-identified registered voters and had a margin of error of 2.6 percentage points.
