Gavin Newsom is a BETTER candidate for President than Kamala Harris in 2024, new poll shows as speculation swirls about whether Biden and his VP will be on the Democratic ticket

  • A recently released poll shows Gavin Newsom would fare slightly better against Donald Trump in a presidential election than if Kamala Harris ran
  • In a head-to-head matchup between Harris and Trump, the two tie at 41 percent with another 18 percent saying they don’t know 
  • When the former president was put up against Newsom, the California Democratic governor beat him just 39 percent to 40 percent
  • Harris has said that she will run on a 2024 ticket as Biden’s No. 2 again 
  • Speculation has emerged that Newsom could make a run after he released campaign ads in Florida urging residents there to move to California

California Governor Gavin Newsom would fare better in a presidential election against Donald Trump than Vice President Kamala Harris, a new poll shows.

The recently released Yahoo News/YouGov survey taken June 24-27 shows that in a head-to-head matchup between Harris and Trump, the two tie at 41 percent with another 18 percent saying they don’t know for whom they would cast their ballot in that hypothetical 2024 election.

But when the former president was put up against Newsom, the California Democrat had just a 1 percentage point advantage – 39 percent to 40 percent.

In this case, 21 percent of respondents were unsure how they would vote.

When the same two hypothetical races were considered among those who watched the January 6 hearings and those who have not, it was obvious that those following the proceedings are much more likely to go for either Newsom or Harris over Trump.

Trump has not yet formally said he is launching another bid for the presidency, but he has teased an announcement almost since the day he vacated the White House last year.

Biden has repeatedly said that he plans to run for reelection in 2024, but as his popularity plummets amid a series of economic and social issue failures and his age and mental acuity is brought into question, so has the possibility of another ticket with his name at the top.

Harris has also said that she plans to again run on the ticket in 2024 as Biden’s No. 2.

This hasn’t stopped pollsters from speculating on other hypothetical matchups in the next presidential election.

Despite Biden’s falling approval rate, he is still the preferred Democratic candidate among left-leaning voters, according to the poll.

When asked whether respondents would prefer Newsom or Biden, they preferred the incumbent by a 20 point margin – 17 percent to 37 percent. A whopping 40 percent said they were unsure and 6 percent said they would not even vote in that primary.

When Biden was put up against his vice president, he still prevailed – but by a much smaller margin.

In the primary matchup, Biden earned 31 percent to Harris’ 25 percent. Another 39 percent were unsure and 5 percent said they would not vote.
