Former President Donald Trump would beat incumbent President Joe Biden by four percentage points if the US presidential election was held today, according to a new USA Today/Suffolk University poll.

Some 44% of Americans say they would vote for Trump and 40% for Biden. The others who were polled said they would vote for another unnamed candidate.

Recall, Biden beat Trump by 54% to 47% – only 7% points.

The poll, which was published on Sunday, took the pulse of some 1,000 registered voters across the country, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

The poll also found that Biden supporters are losing trust in the president.

Nearly half (46%) of those surveyed said that Biden has done a worse job as president than they expected and nearly two-thirds (64%) said they don’t want him to run again in 2024.

The president’s approval rating is a nearly unprecedented 38% – meaning that 59% disapprove. That is the lowest rating of any modern president at this stage in his term, except for Trump’s.

However, among those who voted for Trump last year, some 65% said that they still hope he will run in 2024.

Vice President Kamala Harris also ranked low, with an approval rating of only 28%.
