The latest research by Redfield & Wilton Strategies, conducted among an extra-large sample of 4,000 American voters, finds that 45% of Americans disapprove (-3) and 39% approve (-1) of President Joe Biden’s overall job performance as President. His net approval rating (-6%) is two points up from our previous poll conducted on 15 March and is the highest rating President Biden has held in our US tracker since 17 May last year

Vice President Kamala Harris’ net approval rating stands at -8% (+3). In our latest poll, 44% disapprove (-2) and 36% approve (+1) of Kamala Harris’ performance as Vice President.

Looking ahead to the 2024 Presidential Election, the economy (58%), immigration (37%), and abortion (31%) are the top three choices when American voters are asked to name the issues that would most determine how they will vote.

The economy is the most-selected issue for both Donald Trump (68%) and Joe Biden (52%) voters at the last election. Other important issues for Trump’s 2020 voters include immigration (56%), government spending (27%), and healthcare (21%), while 44% of Biden’s 2020 voters select abortion, 38% select healthcare, and 26% select the environment.

Our latest hypothetical voting intention finds Donald Trump and Joe Biden are now tied nationally, the first time since last July that Donald Trump has not led in our 2024 Presidential Election Voting Intention poll.

After weighing by likelihood to vote, 41% (-3) say they would vote for Trump and 41% (+1) say they would vote for Biden if they were candidates in 2024. 9% (+2) would vote for Robert F. Kennedy Jr., while a further 6% (+1) say they don’t know how they would vote.

If Joe Biden and Donald Trump are the candidates for the two major parties in the next Presidential Election, 40% (-3) of Americans currently say they think Donald Trump would be more likely to win, while 34% (-3) think Joe Biden would be more likely to win. 16% (+5) believe it would be a toss-up, the highest percentage that we have recorded.

However, a majority of Americans remain unhappy with the choice they are now likely to face in November.

57% agree with the statement ‘Between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, I wish there was someone else.’ A majority of Biden voters (63%) and a plurality of Trump voters (48%) at the last election share this view.
