Trump, Biden neck-and-neck in early polling. Why aren’t Dems more worried?


Written by:

Donald Trump is polling even with President Joe Biden in a likely 2024 rematch, according to a recent poll. This has sparked mixed feelings among Democrats, with some alarmed by the neck-and-neck race and others downplaying the polls as meaningless this early in the cycle.

Democratic strategists agree that Trump’s insurrection scheme and criminal charges won’t be enough to stop him from returning to the White House. They warn that every presidential election will depend on a small number of voters, given the Electoral College and highly polarized politics.

In summary, Trump is a serious threat to Biden in 2024, even with his legal troubles. Democrats need to be prepared for a close race and mobilize their base to vote.

Given this, why aren’t Dems more worried? We asked Google Bard for its take. Here’s what the AI had to say:

There are a few reasons why some Democrats may not be more worried about Donald Trump’s chances of winning in 2024.

  • It’s still early in the race. The 2024 election is still 14 months away, and a lot can happen between now and then. The economy could improve, Biden could make significant legislative progress, or Trump could be further indicted or convicted.
  • Biden’s approval ratings are low, but they’re not as low as Trump’s were at this point in his presidency. Trump’s approval rating was 40% in September 2020, while Biden’s is currently at 41%. This suggests that there is still room for Biden to improve his standing with voters.
  • Democrats have a strong base of support. Democrats have a strong base of support among African Americans, Latinos, young people, and women. These groups are all expected to turn out in high numbers in 2024, which could give Biden a significant advantage.
  • Trump is facing legal challenges. Trump is facing a number of legal challenges, including investigations into his role in the January 6th attack on the Capitol and his business practices. If he is indicted or convicted, it could damage his chances of winning in 2024.

However, there are also reasons to be concerned about Trump’s chances.

  • Trump is still very popular with the Republican base. Trump remains very popular with the Republican base, and he is likely to be the Republican nominee in 2024. This means that he will have a strong base of support to build on.
  • Trump is a very effective campaigner. Trump is a very effective campaigner, and he is known for his ability to turn out his base. He is also very good at exploiting divisions among Democrats.
  • The Electoral College makes it possible for Trump to win even if he loses the popular vote. Trump lost the popular vote in 2016, but he won the Electoral College and became president. This means that he could win again in 2024, even if he loses the popular vote by a narrow margin.

Overall, there are both reasons to be concerned and reasons to be hopeful about Trump’s chances of winning in 2024. Democrats should not be complacent, but they should also not give up hope.
