New poll: Tight race between Trump, Biden with RFK, Cornel West independent bids threatening both candidacies

Former President Trump and President Biden are tied in a hypothetical 2024 matchup but are both facing potential threats to their candidacies from independent presidential bids, a new poll has found.

According to the Suffolk University/USA Today poll released Monday, 37% of registered voters said they would support Biden and 36% said they would support Trump. However, independent presidential candidates Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Cornel West also garnered significant support — 13% and 4% respectively.

The support for Kennedy came largely from independent voters (23%), but he also drew large chunks of support from Republicans (9%) and Democrats (7%). West did the same with Democrats (6%) and independents (5%), as well as 2% of Republicans.

A whopping 71% said they felt the country was on the wrong track while just 17% said it was heading in the right direction. 12% were undecided.
