Trump Builds Lead With Independents

Former President Donald Trump built a significant lead with independent voters, according to a recent poll. The news came amid a series of polls showing Trump with leads over President Joe Biden both on the national level and in swing states that will likely decide the 2024 election.

According to the most recent I&I/TIPP Poll, Trump is now leading among independents by 5% in a head-to-head race. However, when independent candidates including Robert F. Kennedy is included, Biden increases his lead with the group to 8%.

In this scenario. Trump would receive 33%, Biden would get 25% and Kennedy would receive 18%.

Polling in the 2020 election showed Biden leading Trump by 13%.

Biden has also lost ground among Black and Latino Americans according to the recent poll.

The poll result also came as the former president drew up to 100,000 people to a weekend rally in New Jersey. The large crowd underlined Trump’s potential support in the deep blue state. He said that his campaign would ultimately win New Jersey in November, which Democrats have carried for more than 30 years.

The former president now leads in nearly every swing state, according to a series of polls. Furthermore, polling averages have shown Trump in a much stronger position than he was in in 2020. In 2020 Biden led polls in Pennsylvania by 5.4%, while Trump currently leads by 1.5%.

In Wisconsin, Biden was ahead by nearly 5% four years ago and is now behind by 1.5%. The current president also led polls in North Carolina by 2.1% in 2020 but is now behind by 6%.

Biden also led Michigan by 7.5% four years ago and is now behind by 1%. Trump leads in Georgia by more than 5% today after leading there by less than a point four years ago. In Nevada, Trump is currently ahead by nearly 5% after being behind by almost 4% four years ago.

In Arizona, Biden led by almost 3% but Trump is ahead by 2.5%.
