Head-to-head, Biden beats Trump by two points, 41 percent to 39 percent. And despite heavy buzz for DeSantis, Biden beats the Florida governor by an even wider margin in this poll, 40% to 36%.
The survey did not include a head-to-head between VP Harris and DeSantis, but the veep does beat Trump by a point, 42 percent to 41 percent.
Andrew Harris, Yahoo News West Coast Correspondent, notes that voters are not excited about either Biden or Trump getting a second term in office:
In a striking expression of the profound pessimism and polarization currently afflicting U.S. politics — as well as a growing aversion to both parties’ presidential front-runners — a plurality of registered voters now say it would be “the worst thing that could happen” if either President Biden (39%) or former President Donald Trump (41%) were to win the White House again in 2024, according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll.
A closer look inside the Yahoo!/YouGov poll also shows just how fatalistic respondents are about both Biden and Trump if they are reelected:
Respondents were also given a chance to say that either president’s reelection would be “mostly bad,” “mostly good,” “a mix of good and bad” or “I’m not sure.”
More chose “the worst thing that could happen” than any other option.
