Former President Donald Trump is leading Joe Biden by five points nationally in the 2024 White House race, according to a new poll.

The Fox News survey, released Wednesday, shows the ex-commander in chief leading the incumbent 50% to 45% in a head-to-head rematch of the 2020 election.

It represents the largest lead Trump, 77, has had over Biden, 81, in a Fox News national poll, according to the outlet.

Trump maintains his edge over Biden even in a hypothetical five-way race.

With third-party candidates included in the survey, 43% of registered voters indicated they would back Trump, while 38% said they would vote for Biden.

Independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. received 12% support – a three-point drop from November – and Green Party and unaffiliated candidates Jill Stein and Cornel West received 2%.

The poll also found that just 22% of respondents said they are “better off” than four years ago.

More than half of respondents – 52% – said they are “worse off.”

More voters trusted Trump over Biden on issues related to immigration – by 18 points – and the economy – by 15 points, whereas the incumbent is more trusted on issues related to election integrity – by 6 points – and health care – by 3 points.

The four issues were rated as the top concerns for voters heading into November, according to the poll.

The president’s overall job rating was measured at a lowly 41% – a one-point drop from last month – with 58% disapproving of his performance as commander in chief.

The survey of more than 1,000 registered voters was conducted between March 22 and March 25 and had a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

New Delhi: US President Joe Biden praised local authorities for their prompt action during the accident at Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, one of the nation’s busiest arteries that collapsed hours on Tuesday after being struck by a massive freight ship. He also made a special mention to the crew of the ship, all of whom were Indians.
“Personnel on board the ship were able to alert the Maryland Department of Transportation that they had lost control of their vessel, as you all know and have reported. As a result, local authorities were able to close the bridge to traffic before the bridge was struck, which undoubtedly saved lives,” Biden said in his address.

“We’re incredibly grateful for the brave rescuers who immediately rushed to the scene,” the US President added.


On Tuesday, the Singapore-flagged container ship Dali, departing Baltimore with a full cargo en route to Sri Lanka, crashed into a concrete pier supporting the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore.

Within seconds almost the entire bridge collapsed and plunged into what officials said was roughly 50 feet of frigid water below.

Moments before, the ship issued a Mayday call warning that it had lost power — prompting authorities to scramble to shut down traffic to the bridge, potentially saving lives.

CCTV footage shows the ship going dark twice in the minutes before the crash. A puff of smoke can also be seen before the collision.

While all 22 crew were unharmed and accounted for, six repairmen on the bridge have been missing. They were part of a construction crew working on repairing potholes on the bridge when it collapsed around midnight.

Biden also announced that the federal government will pay the full cost to rebuild the bridge.

Asked why the federal government should pick the tab if the ship and its operator were potentially to blame, he said, “That could be but we’re not going to wait for that to happen. We’re going to pay for it to get the bridge rebuilt and opened.”

Authorities have closed the port “until further notice” and traffic is being diverted away from the bridge as the rescue effort continues.

The collapse is expected to have a severe impact on the region. Traffic around Baltimore will be affected by the loss of the bridge, while shipping could also see long delays thanks to the debris now choking the waterway.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Political donors can typically expect to see one president when they buy tickets to a reelection fundraiser, but this Thursday will give them a rare opportunity to hear from three at once.

President Joe Biden will be joined by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton at Radio City Music Hall in New York City for an event that brings together more than three decades of Democratic leadership.

The fundraiser will be a gilded exclamation mark on a recent burst of presidential campaign travel. Biden has visited every political battleground in the three weeks since his State of the Union address served as a rallying cry for his reelection bid.

The New York City affair is an hours-long event with different tiers of access depending on donors’ generosity.

The centerpiece is an onstage conversation with the three presidents, moderated by late night talk show host Stephen Colbert. There’s also a lineup of musical performers — Queen Latifah, Lizzo, Ben Platt, Cynthia Erivo and Lea Michele — that will be hosted by actress Mindy Kaling. Thousands are expected, and tickets are as low as $225.

More money gets donors more intimate time with the presidents. A photo with all three is $100,000. A donation of $250,000 earns donors access to one reception, and $500,000 gets them into an even more exclusive gathering.

“But the party doesn’t stop there,” according to the campaign. First lady Jill Biden and DJ D-Nice are hosting an after-party at Radio City Music Hall with 500 guests.

Obama and Clinton are helping Biden expand his already significant cash advantage over Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee. Biden had $155 million cash on hand through the end of February, compared to $37 million for Trump and his Save America political action committee.


“Democrats are unified and energized behind President Biden’s reelection campaign — and that will be on full display this Thursday in New York City,” Kevin Munoz, a campaign spokesman, said in a statement. “Donald Trump has no juice heading into the general: Huge chunks of Republican primary voters have made clear they have no interest in voting for him this November, Republican leaders like his own vice president are openly opposing him, and even if Trump wanted to reach them (he does not!), he has no cash or energy to do so.”

Trump has kept a low profile in recent weeks, partially because of courtroom appearances for various legal cases. He is also expected to be in the area on Thursday, attending the Long Island wake of a New York City police officer who was shot and killed during a traffic stop in Queens.

His next political rally is scheduled for Tuesday in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Some Republican leaders have become concerned that his campaign doesn’t have the infrastructure ready for a general election battle with Biden.

Steven Cheung, a Trump campaign spokesman, dismissed the import of Biden’s Thursday fundraiser.

“Crooked Joe is so mentally deficient that he needs to trot out some retreads like Clinton and Obama,” he said.

Leon Panetta, who served in top positions under Clinton and Obama, described the fundraiser as an important moment for Biden’s campaign.

“What it does, first and foremost, is to broaden and reinforce the support of all Democrats,” he said.

Panetta said Clinton and Obama, both known as effective political communicators, could help Biden develop a better pitch for his reelection.

“I can’t think of two people who would be better at putting together that kind of message,” he said.

Obama’s attendance on Thursday is a reminder of his role in boosting Biden’s reelection. A joint fundraiser with Biden and Obama raised nearly $3 million in December. And people who served in the former president’s administration are also raising money for Biden, scheduling their own event for April 11.

“Consider what you’ll donate this cycle and do it now,” said an email that went out to a network of people. “Early money is far more valuable to the campaign.”
