The first presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump has shifted the polls to Trump’s side. After what was seen as a disastrous performance by current President Joe Biden in the presidential debate held on June 27, 2024 the encounter appears to have tipped the scale in favor of former president Donald Trump. Below is a detailed breakdown of the polls:

Trump takes the lead

The first presidential debate has given Donald Trump a 3-point edge over President Biden across the battleground states collectively, and a 2-point edge nationally.

Motivation over persuasion

A big factor in the shift in polls is motivation, not just persuasion, with Democrats not as likely as Republicans to say they will “definitely” vote.

Electoral college advantage

The preference contest implies an Electoral College advantage for Trump, with Republicans more likely than Democrats to say they will definitely turn out in 2024.

Democrats’ turnout in question

Democrats are not as likely as Republicans to say they will “definitely” vote, with half of Mr. Biden’s 2020 voters not thinking he should be running this year.

Debate performance

Biden’s debate performance has led to significant debate among his supporters over whether he should step down as the Democratic nominee, with only 51% of Democrats and 35% of all likely voters saying that Joe Biden should remain as the Democratic nominee.

Alternative candidates

Many potential alternative Democratic candidates are still unknown by a majority of voters, including Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, Senator Amy Klobuchar, and Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro.

Head-to-Head matchup
