Many Democrats fear that Biden could be hurt by voter concerns about his age (at 81, he is the oldest U.S. president to serve in office) and disapproval within his party for his support of Israel’s war on Hamas.

When asked which of the two candidates had a better approach to the economy – the number one concern of those polled – registered voters chose Trump 43% to 37%.

The Republican had a more significant advantage (44% to 31%) on immigration. Immigrants made up 13.9% of the country in 2022, the highest proportion in more than a century. Trump, who has targeted immigrants in the country illegally, garnered 40% to 35% support on foreign conflicts and terrorism.

But Biden had an edge over Trump in responding to political extremism and threats to democracy, respondents’ second concern, with registered voters choosing the Democrat over Trump by 39% to 33%.

Trump, who was convicted last month on criminal charges of falsifying business records, is awaiting three more criminal trials, two of which are tied to his efforts to overturn his 2020 election loss to Biden.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll, conducted nationally and online, collected responses from 1,019 American adults, including 856 registered voters. It had a margin of error of 3.2 percentage points for all respondents and 3.5 percentage points for registered voters.
