PAF on Pennsylvania’s NEWSRADIO 1340 WRAW: New National Poll Shows Narrow Gap Between Biden, Trump

President Joe Biden is currently holding a narrow lead over former President Donald Trump in a new national survey released by the Democratic super PAC Progress Action Fund, which was first shared with the Hill on Monday (March 18).

Biden reportedly holds a 46% to 45% edge over Trump in the Democratic-leaning firm Public Policy Polling’s poll, though the two candidates are statistically tied as the polling falls within the survey’s margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points, according to the Hill. A separate 9% of respondents said they weren’t sure who they’d support in the upcoming 2024 presidential election, a rematch of the 2020 election in which Biden defeated Trump.

Half of the respondents said they had an unfavorable opinion of Trump while 43% viewed him as favorable and 7% said they were unsure. Additionally, 55% of respondents said they disapproved of Biden’s job performance as president while 39% approved and 6% said they were unsure.

Several previous polls have shown the the former president leading the current president, though Progress Action Fund founder Joe Jacobson claims Biden has recently gained momentum.

“President Biden is on the rise because he is going on offense and contrasting his accomplishments with Donald Trump’s extreme agenda,” Jacobson said in a statement. “Voters are persuaded when Democrats set the narrative and aren’t afraid to hold MAGA Republicans accountable for their horrific policies.”
