Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden by three points in a potential 2024 matchup, a Thursday McLaughlin & Associates poll revealed.

The poll showed Trump with 49 percent of the vote, compared to Biden’s 46 percent, a three-point difference.

Trump also outpolled Kamala Harris by eight points (50-42 percent) and Hillary Clinton by ten (51-41 percent) in a hypothetical 2024 general election.

Trump’s general election polling reflected his primary polling. Sixty-eight percent of Republican primary voters said they wanted to see Trump run for president again. Just 20 percent opposed Trump’s potential reelection campaign.

The poll also revealed Trump holds a 40 point lead over Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) in a potential primary matchup. Former Vice President Mike Pence came in third place at 13 percent, former presidential candidate Mitt Romney at two percent, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) at one percent.

The polling comes as Americans may have voter’s remorse. Since President Biden assumed office, he has sunk in the polls to the mid-thirties. Biden’s lowest approval number was 33 percent.

Biden’s approval rating is so poor that Trump is now more favored than Biden. According to RealClearPolitics , Trump’s favorability rating is greater than any other national political figure’s:

Favorable / Unfavorable / Spread

  • Trump: 45 / 50.6 / -5.6
  • Biden: 42.5 / 52.8 / -10.3
  • Harris: 36.5 / 56 / -15.5
  • McConnell: 24.3 / 57.8 / -33.5
  • McCarthy: 23.7 / 40.3 / -16.6
  • Pelosi: 34.4 / 56.6 / -22.2
  • Schumer: 29 / 46.0 / -17.7

McLaughlin & Associates polled 1,000 voters between March 17-22. The poll sampled 36 percent Republicans, 37 percent Democrats, and 27 percent independents.
