Pollsters to Newsmax: Trump's Lead 'Consistent,' 'Significant'

By    |   Monday, 05 February 2024 02:56 PM EST

Polls are showing Donald Trump leading President Joe Biden, which could signal that voters view indictments against the former president as politically driven, pollsters told Newsmax on Monday.

Appearing on "Newsline," John McLaughlin of McLaughlin and Associates and John Zogby, senior analyst at Zogby Strategies, said recent tallies show Trump leading Biden by 4 points.

"We had numbers on Friday where Trump's ahead of Joe Biden 47-43 nationally. It's been pretty consistent. I think our colleague John Zogby has seen the same thing," McLaughlin said.

McLaughlin noted that the poll was conducted by a partnership of NBC with the firm Hart Research and Public Opinion Strategies, and was a "bipartisan poll not done by Trump people."

"President Trump has a decisive lead — and this is because Joe Biden has been failing, and when they get so desperate as talking about convictions, it's ridiculous," McLaughlin said. "Because in our national poll that we posted on our website ... you have 69% of all voters say politics played a role in the indictments, and another 57% say Joe Biden played a role in these indictments."

McLaughlin derided "this whole thing" as a "sham."

"It's undermining democracy," McLaughlin said. "You've got Joe Biden indicting his leading political opponent. This should not be happening in America, and the voters see it. That's why Donald Trump's winning."

Zogby added that his polling also showed Trump 4 points ahead.

"So, either we're both outliers … or we're in the mainstream. I think we're in the mainstream," Zogby said.

But Zogby said Trump's team has to take suburban women voters into consideration.

"They are reachable on the issue of abortion, that we saw them swing away from education, cultural issues from '21 to '22, where they were pivotal in the Democrats stemming the tide, and that is certainly something that Trump has to contend with," he said.

"But as we speak right now, Trump is leading and … 4 or 5 points in this kind of milieu is something that turns heads. It's a significant lead at this point."
