Trump leads Biden in major poll following release of Fulton County mugshot

Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden in a new poll taken after the former president's mugshot was released last week.

The Economist/YouGov poll showed Trump leading by one percent in the tight battle for 2024.

The details

"The survey, taken August 26-29 among 1,500 U.S. adult citizens, asked respondents who they would vote for if the presidential election came down to Trump and Biden," Breitbart News reported.

"Overall, 44 percent said they would support Trump, compared to 43 percent who said Biden and seven percent who said 'other.' Three percent said they were not sure, and another three percent said they would not vote," it added.

Trump's massive Georgia lead

A separate poll after Trump's arraignment found the former president leading by 42 points in Georgia, the location of his latest charges.

"The new Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll found that 57 percent of likely GOP primary voters in Georgia would support the former president, giving him a 42-point lead against his closest challenger, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis," the Hill reported.

"DeSantis came in second-place with 15 percent of the vote, while every other presidential hopeful polled in single digits," it added.

Exceeding expectations

"That outcome has been a trend for Trump who has seen polling and fundraising boosts with each indictment this year – in the hush-money case in New York, in the classified documents case in Florida, and in the federal 2020 election subversion case in Washington," the Guardian reported.

"It also suggests that some of DeSantis’s principal campaign arguments – that he is more electable than Trump – have failed to cut through with likely Republican voters even after he had the opportunity to establish himself last week in Trump’s absence on the debate stage," it continued.

Trump still faces many legal challenges before the primaries, including cases currently scheduled before the Georgia primary and a Washington case just before Super Tuesday.

So far the indictments, however, have only helped Trump's polling as he seeks a comeback bid for the White House in 2024.
