Pennsylvania poll shows Biden and Trump in a close race for the presidency

According to a recent poll, Pennsylvania voters are evenly split between Democrat Joe Biden and Republican Donald Trump in a hypothetical presidential race. The survey indicates that the two candidates are currently tied.

According to a recent statewide poll conducted by Muhlenberg College in Allentown, 42% of Pennsylvania voters express their preference for Biden in the upcoming 2024 elections, while 41% favor Trump. It is important to note that the poll has a margin of error of 6%.

According to Christopher Borick, a political science professor at Muhlenberg, the poll aligns with other statewide polls that predict a highly contested general election next year.

“The competition is neck and neck when all the data points are considered,” he remarked. “It’s an extremely close race.”

According to Borick, the poll reveals that both candidates are experiencing significant negative ratings.


Approximately 57% of voters in the state express their disapproval of President Biden’s job performance, while only 34% approve. Furthermore, a significant 65% of respondents believe that Biden does not deserve to be re-elected for a second term.

According to Borick, Trump is burdened by his perceived temperament.

According to recent polls, both Trump and Biden have similar favorability ratings. Only 33% of voters find Trump favorable, while a majority of 68% believe that he lacks the temperament necessary for the presidency.

According to Borick, voters believe that Biden has not earned another term and consider him too old to run for office. He is viewed unfavorably due to these factors. However, it is important to note that Trump also faces significant negative perceptions, with his unfavorability ratings being equally high compared to Biden.

According to Borick, the poll indicates that voters have a preference for different candidates from both parties when it comes to the presidency. However, it is clear that Biden and Trump are currently leading the race on a national level.

According to him, individuals are currently facing a state of discontent. He further explains that Pennsylvania voters, in particular, are perceiving the direction of the country in a more negative light. It is worth noting that Pennsylvanians typically tend to align their sentiments fairly closely with the overall national mood.

A telephone survey conducted by Muhlenberg College gathered responses from 421 registered voters in Pennsylvania between November 20 and December 13.

According to the poll, Governor Josh Shapiro stands out with a strong approval rating, which is in stark contrast to the high negatives of both Biden and Trump.

51% of voters approve of Shapiro’s job as governor, while only 21% disapprove.

In the realm of potential presidential candidates for the future, Shapiro’s name has emerged. In a recent Muhlenberg poll, voters were asked who they would choose in a hypothetical presidential face-off between Trump and Shapiro. Surprisingly, Shapiro garnered an 11-point lead, with 48% of the voters supporting him compared to 37% for Trump.

According to Borick, Shapiro’s approval ratings are impressive, especially considering the prevailing political partisanship and polarization.

According to the poll, a majority of voters, 52%, are in favor of including the right to an abortion in the state constitution, while 41% are opposed.

According to Borick, the majority of Pennsylvanians are in favor of preserving or even expanding abortion rights.

According to Borick, it would be difficult for any politician to challenge and undermine the rights in Pennsylvania.
