Georgia is a crucial swing state that might determine the winner of the presidential elections in November, and a 2024 election survey shows that Donald Trump has a significant advantage over Joe Biden.
In a hypothetical matchup between Trump and Biden, Trump wins 45 percent to 37 percent, according to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution survey of registered voters.
To succeed in the 2024 reelection campaign, Biden will need to hold on to several swing states, including Georgia, which he took from Trump in 2020. Polls show that the Republican would defeat Biden in critical states like Michigan, Arizona, and Pennsylvania, and Biden’s popularity ratings have been consistently poor, casting doubt on his chances of defeating Trump in November.
According to the most recent poll, Biden is having trouble winning over independent and Black voters. These groups were crucial to his 2020 triumph in Georgia.
Twenty percent of Georgians have said they are not yet prepared to back either Biden or Trump for president, indicating that many would prefer a different set of presidential contenders.
Independent voters are divided by Biden’s presidency, with 54% expressing disapproval.
Respondents to the survey offered several reasons for their lack of support for Trump and Biden. If Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is not nominated as the Republican candidate, Andrew Harper of Ben Hill County said he would write in another name on his vote.
JFK Jr., the independent candidate, environmental lawyer, and vaccine skeptic, runs a long-shot campaign. But Dunwoody resident Joel Krieger views it as a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to improve Washington, D.C.
“Don’t you get sick of picking the lesser of two evils while voting?” Krieger asked.
Cobb County resident Bobbi Haley has stated her belief that Biden is a “poor candidate,” but she would vote for Trump despite her reservations because she sees him as a “threat to democracy” due to his purported efforts to reverse the 2020 election results.
Between January 3 and 11, researchers from the School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Georgia polled 1,007 registered voters for the AJC. There is a margin of error of 3.1 percent.
