Poll Shows Trump Beating Biden in 2024 Matchup: Stunning Numbers Prove Americans Miss Trump
You know what they say: Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
I never thought of this as a political maxim, exactly, but such is life in post-Trump America.
Former President Donald Trump never had a hard time energizing his wildly enthusiastic base, and it appears that this unlikely political genius has perhaps unwittingly stumbled across the key to winning over his vehement opponents, too.
Just sit back, let President Joe Biden do what he does best, and wait for 2024.
I don’t know if this is the Trump camp’s primary strategy. Still, I doubt there’s anything he could do or say that could ingratiate Americans to him more than simply continuing to exist as the hypothetical alternative to Biden.
It appears that the voting public might agree.
A new poll from Emerson College suggests that, as Biden’s approval ratings sag, a 2024 matchup between the current and previous presidents would see Trump emerge as the victor.
The poll was conducted from Wednesday to Thursday among 1,000 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.
When asked who they would vote for if the 2024 election were held today and the nominees were Trump and Biden, 45 percent of respondents said Trump, and 43 percent said, Biden.
Biden’s approval rating also dropped by five points since Emerson’s last poll in September. It now sits at 41 percent (ouch).
The most notable drop in approval was among African-American voters, whose support for Biden went from 72 percent in February to 52 percent in November. It looks like black voters need another reminder from Biden that if they don’t support him, well, they “ain’t black.”
Spencer Kimball, Emerson’s polling director, noted that the 11 percent of voters who would go for someone other than Biden or Trump in 2024 is significant and indicates that “2024 could perhaps witness a third party candidate reaching the required 15% support to get on the debate stage.”
Things are looking even worse for Biden’s party ahead of the 2022 midterms; when asked whether they’d vote for the GOP or Democratic congressional candidate if the election were held today, 49 percent of respondents said they’d vote red, 42 percent said they’d vote blue, and 9 percent were undecided.
Between this new data and the red wave that just crashed through the state of Virginia on Tuesday, the midterms are shaping up to be a nightmare for Democrats.
There is no doubt that millions of Americans vehemently hated Trump — even the staunchest Trump supporter would have to agree.
The establishment media covered his presidency as though he were pretty literally Hitler and melted down every time he exchanged minor verbal blows with some critic on Twitter or enacted policies that wouldn’t have been controversial under any other president.
Even conservatives disliked his ego and brash demeanor. It was not uncommon for Trump voters to clarify that they didn’t necessarily support his behavior or personal morals, just his policies.
All concerns about election integrity aside, it’s not difficult to believe that Americans were just tired of the circus and thought that Biden was a better way forward — despite his sordid history and even sexual assault allegations.

Notes from the Editor
At 0censor, we have said that the best advertisement for Trump is not Trump; instead, it is to sit back and let the inept craziness of the Biden administration continue. We have heard many tell us that we should impeach Biden now, and while we may agree with this, it is terrifying thinking of who would come in to replace him.
With this being stated, we have no issue with an impeachment; turnaround is fair play. Even though the Dems would scream that it isn’t, they hypocritically think they have rights that no one else does. But, for the sake of the nation, if we are going to impeach one, we have to look at going after two, or we risk having something far, far worse in office than what we are removing.
Suppose we continue to allow the president holder of the office to stay in. In that case, we are most likely not only looking at a landslide victory for the GOP in the mid-term elections but would see this even more in the 2024 election, that could be what is best for this nation, hopefully by that time, we will have gotten rid of all the Rhino’s as well.
