Washington, Sep 1 (Prensa Latina) President Joe Biden would defeat if the 2024 presidential election were held today, according to a Wall Street Journal poll released Thursday.

Joe Biden holds a 6-point lead over Trump in a hypothetical rematch, with 50% of registered voters saying they would probably or definitely vote for Biden and 44% saying the same of Trump.

In the Aug. 17-25 Wall Street Journal poll, which interviewed 1,313 registered voters nationwide, 45% said they approved of Biden’s performance as president, a 3-point bump from March.

This is up from March, when Biden and Trump were tied in the hypothetical rematch, with each receiving 45% support.

Biden and the White House have said he intends to run for reelection in 2024. Trump has not made an official announcement but has repeatedly teased another run.

He has seen a bump in popularity after a series of political successes last month, including the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act and the announcement of some federal student loan debt forgiveness.

Trump saw a slight loss in popularity after a tumultuous month following the FBI raid of his Mar-a-Lago home. In the Wall Street Journal poll, 58% said they view the former president unfavorably, a 3-point increase from March.
