As November 5th approaches, the day on which USA will elect a president again, the first polls indicate a considerable advantage of Donald TrumpRepublican candidate, over the current president Joe BidenThese results emerged from separate opinion polls published on Wednesday by the New York Times and Wall Street Journal, after the first presidential debate.

While the first polls indicated that it would be an even match, the New York Times and Siena College poll revealed that Trump was ahead by 6 points – 49% to 43% – Biden, democrat.

Despite the adverse numbers, Biden He assured that will not withdraw from the 2024 presidential race and tried to reassure leading Democrats in the Capitol. He emphasized that is eligible for re-election and justified his performance in last week’s presidential debate, where he was seen to be hesitant at various times: “I didn’t have my best night, but the fact is that I wasn’t very smart“In this regard, the American president explained that he decided to “travel around the world a couple of times, passing through about 15 time zones before the debate.”

And he added: “I didn’t listen to my staff. And then I came back and almost fell asleep on stage“.

Trump thus has his best lead in a Times/Siena poll since 2015, at the beginning of the campaign that brought him to the presidency after defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016. At that time, the poll placed him 9 points above his opponent.

For its part, the survey of the Wall Street Journal He pointed out that Trump maintains an advantage of 6 points on Bidenwhile the same survey carried out in February indicated that the difference was only two points.

Biden’s age is one of the main concerns of his voters

In both surveys, conducted nationwide, respondents said that Biden’s age, 81, was one of the factors that would define his voteAbout 80% of those surveyed by the Journal, which interviewed 1,500 registered voters between June 29 and July 2, said Biden was too old to run for a second termThe poll had a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.

As for the Times poll, which surveyed 1,532 registered voters between June 28 and July 2, it found that broad sections of all demographic groups – including black voters and those who said they would continue to vote for him – viewed Trump as a strong candidate. Biden ‘too old to be an effective president’ The poll had a margin of error of 2.8 points.

As voters increasingly express concern about Biden’s age, his performance in the final presidential debate has raised questions about his candidacy.

A Democratic congresswoman asked Joe Biden to withdraw his candidacy

In this context, the withdrawal of the candidacy of Biden is gaining followers: a congressman from the Democratic Party publicly asked the US president to step aside from his re-election campaign.

“Recognizing that, unlike Trump, the president’s first commitment Biden It has always been with our country, not with himself, “I hope he makes the difficult and painful decision to retire,” said Congressman Lloyd Doggett. it’s a statement.

According to analysts, and what is said among the Democratic ranks, it was a ““political disaster” that caused “consternation” within the party with just over four months to go before the election. This calls into question the official’s continuity to face Trump in the elections to be held on November 5.
