President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are neck and neck in a hypothetical matchup set in 2024, according to a new poll that indicated support for presidential re-election is waning.
In a hypothetical matchup between Trump and Biden, a Marquette Law School poll released Thursday found the two frontrunners tied with 38% of the vote, while 20% of respondents said they would support someone else. The poll results reflect a shift in the 2024 race. Biden was ten percentage points ahead of Trump in a November poll.
A recent Fox News poll released Wednesday showed Biden is waning, with 52% of respondents wanting to see another candidate as the Democratic nominee in 2024. In the same Fox poll, 54% said they would like to see Trump as a GOP voter for any other potential or declared Republican candidate. The Fox News poll was conducted March 24-27 with an error margin of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
The Marquette poll shows that among registered voters, Biden leads Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis by nearly 10 percentage points and captures 43% of the vote, while Florida Gov. has not announced whether he will serve as president in the next cycle will run, 34% received support.

The poll found that while Trump is leading in a crowded Republican primary, he falls short in a one-on-one match with DeSantis, who is widely expected to enter the race for the Republican nomination.
If you pit the two Republicans against each other, DeSantis leads with 54% support ahead of Trump, who received 46% of the vote among Republican respondents in the Marquette poll.
Despite DeSantis’ lead, the results show a tightening of the race after the Florida governor held a nearly 30-point lead over Trump in a January poll. Other recent polls have shown Trump to be double digits ahead of DeSantis.

The survey was conducted March 13-22 with an error margin of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.
