Harris And Clinton Lead In Polls Against Trump Over Biden

As internal concerns mount within the Democratic Party about President Joe Biden’s 2024 reelection bid, recent polls suggest alternative candidates might have a better chance at defeating Donald Trump.

According to the Washington Examiner, new polling data reveal that Biden lags behind Trump, while Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton show slightly better performance against the former president.

Polling by Democratic pollster Bendixen & Amandi has ignited discussions among Democrats as it presented hypothetical matchups for the upcoming election. These findings suggest that President Biden is slightly behind Trump, with a 42% to 43% margin.

The same polls gave a slight edge to Vice President Kamala Harris and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who narrowly outpaced Trump in these hypothetical matchups. Harris surpasses Trump by one point at 42%-41% and Clinton by two points at 43%-41%.

Governors Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan and Gavin Newsom of California appear less favorable compared to their Democratic peers. In their respective hypothetical match-ups, both trail Trump by four points.

Exploring Democratic Ticket Options for 2024

The poll tested individual candidates against Trump and proposed tickets incorporating various Democratic figures. A Clinton-Harris ticket showed considerable promise, leading Trump 43%- 40%.

Other proposed tickets included Harris with Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro, which also led Trump by two points, and a ticket pairing Harris with Governor Whitmer. However, this combination lagged behind Trump by 41%-39%.

These survey results come at a crucial time as Democrats evaluate their best strategy for maintaining the presidency amid uncertainty surrounding Biden’s campaign.

Biden's Campaign Context Amidst Age Concerns

Biden has faced increased scrutiny over his age and perceived mental sharpness. His recent appearance on ABC News and his campaign activities have not quelled concerns among critics and supporters alike.

Amidst these growing doubts, only a handful of House Democrats have publicly advised Biden to consider not running for re-election. However, private concerns amongst party members seem to be more widespread.

Despite her favorable polling against Trump, Clinton has publicly backed Biden, reinforcing her support for his candidacy and dismissing any speculation about her own 2024 ambitions.

Democratic Party's Internal Deliberations and Public Statements

Despite the undercurrents of dissatisfaction, the Democratic Party has yet to coalesce around a potential non-Biden candidate firmly. The recent poll results highlight the complex dynamics at play within the party as it gears up for another intense election cycle.

Many inside the party continue to weigh the theoretical strengths of Biden’s potential successors, particularly focusing on the electability of candidates like Harris and Clinton compared to him.

While fewer than a dozen House Democrats have voiced their concerns publicly, the broader sentiment within the party reflects a cautious approach to the upcoming election and Biden’s candidacy.

Democratic Party's Strategic Crossroads

The scenario places the Democratic Party at a crossroads. While Biden remains an experienced leader with a significant tenure, the polling data and internal concerns suggest a possible shift in strategy could be considered.

This uncertainty highlights the delicate balance between supporting a sitting president and confronting the pragmatic electoral challenges that lie ahead in 2024 against a formidable opponent like Trump.

The party faces critical decisions in the months ahead. It must address these challenges while maintaining unity and focusing on retaining the White House.


The Democratic Party confronts a complex electoral landscape as it prepares for the 2024 presidential election. The recent polls suggest that Harris and Clinton could potentially perform better against Trump than Biden amidst internal debates and public concerns about the current president’s candidacy. With the election drawing closer, the Democratic Party’s strategies and candidate choices remain focal points of attention and speculation.
