Americans plot a Trump return over Joe Biden

The results of a recent CNN poll conducted by SSRS reveal shifting perceptions among Americans regarding former President Donald Trump and current President Joe Biden. According to the poll, Trump maintains a lead over Biden in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup, with 49% of registered voters supporting Trump compared to Biden’s 43%.

The poll suggests a significant shift in public opinion regarding the success of each president’s term. While 55% of Americans now view Trump’s presidency as a success, up from 44% in January 2021, only 39% consider Biden’s presidency successful, down from 41% in January 2022.

Republicans show stronger unity in their support for Trump, with 92% considering his presidency a success, compared to 73% of Democrats who view Biden’s term positively. Among independents, 51% see Trump’s presidency as successful, while only 37% perceive Biden’s presidency in the same light.

Regarding specific policy areas, public opinion is mixed. While 45% approve of Biden’s handling of health care policy and 44% approve of his handling of student loan debt, his management of the conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza receives low approval ratings, with only 28% approval and 71% disapproval.

Economic concerns persist, with 70% of Americans rating economic conditions in the US as poor. Interestingly, many Republicans attribute their views on the economy to political factors rather than economic indicators.

In a broader electoral scenario that includes independent candidates Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West, as well as Green Party candidate Jill Stein, Trump maintains his lead over Biden, with 42% support compared to Biden’s 33%.

The CNN poll was conducted from April 18-23 among a random national sample of 1,212 adults, including 967 registered voters.
