Harvard Poll: Trump Carries Positive Favorability Rating

By    |   Monday, 26 February 2024 05:39 PM EST

Republican front-runner for president Donald Trump has a positive favorability rating among registered voters while President Joe Biden is 11 points under water, according to the latest Harvard/Harris X poll released Monday.

Trump carries a net approval rating of +3 thanks to 30% who give Trump a "very favorable" rating and 20% "favorable" for a net favorable score of 50%. Biden, meanwhile, nets at 43% favorable vs. 54% unfavorable.

Independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has a plus-17% favorability rating, the highest of the candidates and public figures polled by far, according to the survey.

The least favorable figure surveyed was Hunter Biden, with a net rating of minus-34%.

Further, Joe Biden has an approval rating of 45%, a 3-point jump from January, and matching his mark from November. Prior to November, Biden hadn't reached 45% approval since November 2021.

In a head-to-head battle for president, Trump owns a 6-point lead over Biden, 48% to 42%, with 9% saying they're unsure. In a three-way contest that adds in RFK Jr., Trump leads Biden by 7 points, 42% to 35%, with RFK Jr. pulling in 15%, according to the poll. Another 8% said they're unsure.

In a five-way race that includes Cornel West and Jill Stein, Trump's lead expands to nine over Biden, 42% to 33%, with RFK Jr. getting 14% of that pie, the survey reported.

Trump leads six of the seven battleground states, five of them sizably, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average. Biden only leads in Pennsylvania, and that by a margin of 0.6, according to RCP.

The Harris Poll surveyed 2,022 registered voters from Feb. 21-22 and no margin of error is provided.
