"In Nevada, Trump beats Biden 52% to 41%, while the RCP aggregate has Trump ahead 46.7% to 44.3%. In Georgia, Trump is up 49% to 43%, while the RCP aggregate has it 48.5% to 43%," the New York Post reported.
"Down in Arizona, Trump is ahead 49% to 44%, while the RCP aggregate has it 47% to 43.3%. In Michigan, Trump is up 49% to 43% compared to the RCP aggregate at 44.2% to 43%. And in Pennsylvania, Trump leads 48% to 44%, while the RCP aggregate has him up 45.5% to 43.5%," it noted.
While the primary elections do not begin until January, Trump and Biden are well on their way for a rematch of the 2020 election. If so, the controversy from the last election is expected to continue as both leaders face challenges ahead of voting, with Trump in multiple legal battles and Biden facing an impeachment inquiry over past international business deals.
The situation is now also complicated with some states pursuing legal challenges to keep Trump off of the ballot. Colorado is the state currently considering the measure, with Minnesota and Michigan also discussing the idea.
The 2024 election will likely be a close one with both leaders seeking any advantage possible counting down to next November as they each seek a win for the White House.
