As of August 2023, polls show that Joe Biden and Donald Trump are tied in a hypothetical rematch for the presidency in 2024. Where do you stand on the issue?
A poll by The New York Times and Siena College found that 43% of registered voters would support Biden and 43% would support Trump. The poll also found that 14% of registered voters were undecided.
Biden has been plagued by low approval numbers. Polls from RMG Research and Premise found that 58% and 59% disapprove of Biden, respectively. Biden is also currently facing articles of impeachment, which have been formally introduced following the investigation into his complicit involvement in his son Hunter’s illegal overseas business deals.
Trump, on the other hand, has been indicted multiple times, which appears to be increasing his support and donations. “Any time they file an indictment, we go way up in the polls,” Trump told a crowd in Montgomery, Ala in early August following his third indictment.
“We need one more indictment to close out this election. One more indictment, and this election is closed out,” Trump said.

Critics say Democrats are pursuing politically motivated criminal indictments in order to cause election interference as Trump is the 2024 Republican Party frontrunner.
In Iowa, Trump told reporters he will never take a plea deal in Georgia. “Is there any chance you take a plea deal in Georgia?” a reporter is heard asking Trump.
“We did nothing wrong,” Trump responded. “We don’t ever take a plea deal. We don’t take plea deals. It’s a wise guy question.”
“We don’t take plea deals because we did nothing wrong,” he added. “It’s called election interference.”
