President Biden‘s slide in the polls now puts him behind all of the top Republican candidates.
Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has the biggest lead over Mr. Biden with registered voters nationwide favoring her 55% to 45%.
Ms. Haley has been rising in the polls since the third GOP debate in Miami earlier this month. When likely voters are added into the mix, Ms. Haley leads the president by an even larger margin of 56% to 44%. Mr. Trump sees his support go down by one point from 51% to 49% and Mr. DeSantis’ support stays the same.
Ms. Haley and Mr. DeSantis still trail behind Mr. Trump in the GOP race. The former president grabs 54% of Republican voters, while the other two tie at 12%. The numbers show an increase in support for Ms. Haley since March, but a decline for Mr. DeSantis.
Mr. Biden turns 81 on Monday and is the oldest president in history. Voters have worried that he is too old to effectively serve another term.
The poll found that 57% of voters said the phrase “is too old to be president” describes Mr. Biden “very well,” while 23% said it fits him “somewhat well.”
Mr. Trump, 77, isn’t too far behind the president in age, but not as many voters consider him to be too old to serve as president. The poll found that 23% of voters said the phrase fit him “very well” and 28% said it fits him “somewhat well.”
The survey was conducted Nov. 2-7. The sample size for registered voters was 856 voters nationwide, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points. The sample size for likely voters was 688 with a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points. For Republican/Republican-leaning voters, the sample size was 398 with a margin of error of plus or minus 6.6 percentage points.
