Trump tops Biden in six swing states ahead of 2024 election: poll

Former President Donald Trump is beating President Biden in six of the seven key swing states for the 2024 election, according to a new poll, with voters raising concerns about the 81-year-old incumbent’s mental fitness and his handling of the economy and immigration issues.

A Wall Street Journal survey released Wednesday found Trump, 77, is leading in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia by between one and three percentage points and in North Carolina, Arizona and Nevada by more than the poll’s margin of error.

Biden and the former president are also tied in a head-to-head matchup in the blue wall state of Wisconsin.

The seven battleground states comprise 93 of the 270 electoral college votes needed for either candidate to win in November. 

By the issues, a majority of the voters said Trump was the better candidate to handle the economy and border security, with 54% and 52% backing the former president, respectively.

Just 34% said Biden was the better pick for dealing with the economy, and 32% favored the president on immigration issues.

Notably, an even lower 28% said Biden has the “mental and physical fitness needed to be president.”

A plurality of 48% of voters said Trump had the requisite mental and physical capabilities.
