Former president Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden by five points in a hypothetical rematch, according to a new poll from the New York Times and Siena College that was released today.


Among registered voters, 48 percent said they would vote for the former president Trump if the 2024 presidential election “were held today” and the candidates were him and Biden. Forty-three percent said they would vote for Biden in response to the same question. 


The poll also found 65 percent of registered voters said the country is on the “[w]rong track,” versus 24 percent saying it is on the “[r]ight track.”


The Times and Siena College poll also asked registered voters who they voted for in the last presidential election, with 44 percent saying they voted for Biden and 34 saying they voted for Trump. Eighteen percent said they didn’t vote in the 2020 election.


The Times and Siena College poll was conducted between Feb. 25 and 28 and featured 980 registered voters from across the nation, with 823 who completed the full survey. The margin of error for registered voters is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points and plus or minus 4 percentage points for registered voters who completed the full survey.

Here's the deal: The U.S. Supreme Court is going to grant Donald Trump presidential immunity from criminal prosecution. Trumps criminal cases in Miami, Atlanta, and Washington will be immediately dismissed when this event occurs. The fourth case -- in Manhattan -- will be decided in Trump's favor by the U.S. Supreme Court on other grounds. These expedited Supreme Court rulings will clear the deck for a rematch between Trump and Biden, which Biden cannot win. It is imperative that Democrats get a new presidential nominee who is capable of defeating Trump. The alternative is unthinkable.
