Harvard Poll: Trump Leads Biden by 6 Points

By    |   Monday, 20 May 2024 01:49 PM EDT

Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden by 6 points nationally in a hypothetical head-to-head race, according to a Harvard-Harris survey released Monday.

Trump topped Biden 49% to 43%, while 8% of respondents were undecided.

When undecided voters were pushed to select the candidate they leaned toward and included with the rest of the sample, Trump led 53% to 47%  — a 2 point increase from April, when he led Biden 52% to 48%, Breitbart reported.

With "leaners" included, Trump garnered the support of 95% of GOP voters, while Biden had 91% of Democrats. Nearly 1 in 10 Democrats broke for Trump; 1 in 20 Republicans supported Biden, Breitbart reported.

Other survey findings showed:

  • 69% have made up their minds on who they'll vote for; 31% are still weighing the choices.
  • 46% of participants said Biden is mentally fit; 54% said they have doubts.
  • 49% say Biden is getting worse as president.
  • 55% say Trump has committed crimes for which he should be convicted; the same number say Democrats are using the legal system in a biased way to take out a political opponent.
  • 50% of voters say Trump's legal cases make it impossible for him to be a viable candidate for president,
  • 79% want Biden and Trump to debate each other; 63% say the debates will provide valuable information.
  • 63% say Biden's pubic lapses are more frequent these days.
  • 59% say questions about a president's age, memory or lapsed concentration are dangerous; 41% say fears are overblown politically.

The poll's margin of error was 2 percentage points.
