(RoyalPatriot.com )- Last Friday, the Wall Street Journal released its latest poll that showed President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are tied at 45 percent in a hypothetical 2024 match-up.
The same poll had Joe Biden’s favorability at 41 percent with 56 percent of respondents having an unfavorable of the president.
But former President Trump’s polling wasn’t much better. Like Biden, Trump’s favorability was only 41 percent while 55 percent had an unfavorable view of the former president. Trump’s “very unfavorable” is one point higher (48 percent) than Biden’s (47 percent).
With both suffering from very low favorability, it is understandable that a hypothetical match-up can only garner a tie.
But even a tie is better than the November Wall Street Journal poll which had Biden beating Trump by one point.
Though you would think that up against the least popular president in recent history, the hypothetical match-up wouldn’t be so close.
Joe Biden has said he plans to run for reelection in 2024 when he will be 81-years-old. But the likelihood the Democrat Party would allow that is slim.
And though former President Trump has spent the last year teasing a possible rematch in 2024, he has yet to officially declare he is running.
The Wall Street Journal poll was also very bad news for Congressional Democrats.
In the Journal’s generic congressional ballot, respondents prefer Republicans over Democrats by a 5-point margin, 46 percent to 41 percent.
But it gets worse.
The generic congressional ballot also found that Republicans have a 9 point advantage over Democrats among Hispanic voters.
In the November WSJ poll, Hispanic voters were evenly split in the generic congressional ballot. A nine-point jump for Republicans is devastating news for the Democrats heading into the midterms.
What’s more, Republicans have made significant headway among black voters.
In the November WSJ poll, Democrats enjoyed a 44 point advantage over Republicans among black voters, 56 percent to 12 percent. That 44-point advantage has dwindled to eight points in just over four months. Now black voters only prefer Democrats, 35 percent, over Republicans, 27 percent.
