Donald Trump would defeat incumbent President Biden for the White House if the race were held now, a new poll finds.
New findings from a Harvard-Harris poll released Friday show Trump would beat Biden in a head-to-head matchup by five percentage points.
New polls also show Vivek Ramaswamy hot on the heels of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who leads the polls by eight points and trails DeSantis by just two.
According to the poll, Trump would also defeat Vice President Kamala Harris if she resigned and ran by a larger margin than seven percentage points.
The former president also remains well ahead of winning the Republican presidential primary despite Ramaswamy’s rise.
The new poll suggests that if an election were held now, former President Trump, right, would beat incumbent Biden, left, by five percentage points.
Their poll, which polled 2,068 registered voters, also showed widespread dissatisfaction across the country for both major party candidates, with 70 percent looking for another option.
Most people surveyed also agreed that President Biden was mentally unfit to continue as president.
59 percent agreed they had doubts about his fitness for office, mostly GOP voters, 85 percent.
The poll also widely agreed that Biden appeared to be too old to be president, with more than two-thirds, 68 percent, agreeing that he was too old.
If the Republican primary falls between DeSantis and Trump, polling indicates the former president will win by a landslide with 63 percent of the vote.
Beyond the main political front runners in the upcoming elections, the survey also asked people about their favorability of political figures.
Topping the poll was Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who earned a favorable rating of 47 percent with 26 percent unfavorable.
Second on the list was Donald Trump, who earned a favorable rating of 45 percent, but an unfavorable rating of over 49 percent.
Vivek Ramaswamy, left, has now closed the gap to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, right, to just two percentage points, but both still trail Trump by a substantial margin.
Fresh doubts have been raised about Biden’s fitness for office after a string of high-profile slip-ups.
A poll released earlier this month by Echelon Insights found that 48 percent of swing state voters would back Trump in next year’s election.
Pollsters who interviewed 1,020 voters for the survey said only 41 percent would back Biden over the former president.
But in direct nationwide polls, Echelon found Biden ahead of Trump 45 percent to 44 percent.
The Echelon Insights survey revealed that 60 percent of likely Democratic voters said they would “definitely” or “probably” support Biden in the Democratic presidential primary.
It also found 33 percent said they would support a different Democratic candidate, with 7 percent saying they were unsure.
The Echelon Insights poll was conducted between June 26 and 29 with 1,020 likely voters, with a margin of error of +/- 3.9 percentage points.
Of all the political figures in the country, Robert F. Kennedy, who was running as the Democratic presidential candidate, was considered the most favored in the polls.
The president managed to win the 2020 election after flipping the key swing states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Georgia.
Last month, a poll suggested that the swing state of Pennsylvania had swung toward Trump.
With 20 Electoral College votes and swings between elections, Pennsylvania is one of the key states in determining who wins the presidency.
After voting for Trump in 2016, Pennsylvania went blue for Biden in 2020.
A Quinnipiac poll found that 47 percent of Pennsylvania voters would vote for the former president, while 46 percent would support the current commander-in-chief.
