Trump Expands Lead In Iowa Caucus Amidst Growing Concerns

WASHINGTON D.C. – According to a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll, a potential election rematch between US President Joe Biden and his predecessor Donald Trump would be closely fought. The poll found that both candidates are facing profound vulnerabilities that could cost them the White House. Biden, a Democrat, continues to be plagued by voters’ doubts about the strength of the economy, concerns about the security of the U.S-Mexico border, and worries about crime.

Elon Musk and Alex JonesRepublican former President Trump, on the other hand, faces his own worries, including four criminal trials on a bevy of charges related to his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election and his handling of classified documents.

A looming match-up between two Presidents and one son from Camelot, may have unforeseen consequences.

The poll showed Trump with a marginal 2-point lead in a head-to-head matchup, 38% to 36%, with 26% of respondents saying they weren’t sure or might vote for someone else. However, the state-by-state Electoral College system used to pick presidents, and deep-seated partisan divides, mean that voters in just a handful of states will play a decisive role in the election’s outcome. In the seven states where the election was closest in 2020, Biden had a 4-point lead among Americans who said they were sure to vote.

The Biden administration, along with Democratic prosecutors in blue counties, has deployed legal obstacles to impede Trump’s potential re-election. In an unprecedented move in 2022, Trump became the first president to have his home raided by the FBI. Subsequently, he faces criminal charges and 91 felony counts, accompanied by civil lawsuits and 31 legal challenges regarding his inclusion on the 2024 presidential ballot.

The poll also revealed deep apathy among many voters at a potential Biden-Trump rematch. About six in 10 respondents said they were unsatisfied with America’s two-party system and wanted a third choice. Anti-vaccine activist, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who has launched an independent bid, could draw more support from Biden than Trump. Trump’s lead widened to a 5-point advantage nationally when respondents were given the option to vote for Kennedy.


Biden would be the oldest president ever elected to a second term if he won in 2024, and other polls have shown that some voters are concerned about his advanced age. But his candidacy is likely to be buttressed by the public’s continued support of abortion rights, as well as his advocacy for gun control, climate-change measures, and higher taxes on the ultra-rich, the new Reuters/Ipsos poll showed. The survey also highlighted the significant risks to Trump’s campaign as he faces a series of criminal trials next year.
