Zinger Key Points
  • A weekly poll from Morning Consult asks voters who they would pick in hypothetical 2024 election matchups.
  • Along with a Biden vs. Trump matchup, voters were asked to pick between Nikki Haley and Biden in a hypothetical matchup.

One person who stands in the way of a 2024 presidential election rematch between President Joe Biden and Donald Trump is former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley, who remains in the race for the GOP nomination.

What Happened: The most recent Morning Consult poll showed Trump with a record 63-point lead over his Republican opposition and a record 75% in support.

The weekly Morning Consult poll asked registered voters who they would select in a hypothetical matchup of Trump vs. Biden. In this week's poll, Trump received 45% of the vote and Biden received 40% of the vote. Ten percent selected Someone Else and 5% selected Don't Know.

The poll also showed a hypothetical matchup of Haley and Biden in the seven swing states, where Biden posted a lead in each contest.

  • Arizona: 36% Biden, 32% Haley
  • Georgia: 40% Biden, 31% Haley
  • Michigan: 36% Biden, 29% Haley
  • Nevada: 36% Biden, 25% Haley
  • North Carolina: 35% Biden, 32% Haley
  • Pennsylvania: 38% Biden, 32% Haley
  • Wisconsin: 37% Biden, 32% Haley

The head-to-head matchups of Biden vs. Haley show the current president winning all seven swing states and having a potentially easier path to re-election.

The poll also found that a larger percentage of people could vote third party if faced with a decision between Haley and Biden, with all seven states having at least 19% or higher selection of the "Someone Else" option in each state and at least 11% in each state selecting "Don't Know."
