Post-Trump indictment poll reveals a 'statistical tie' between Trump and Biden

 June 20, 2023

Jonathan Karl of ABC News, was in complete shock as he read the results of a poll conducted after former President Donald Trump's indictment.

The poll puts Trump only slightly behind President Joe Biden in a potential 2024 election rematch.

"A poll from Quinnipiac on a [a] possible Biden/Trump matchup puts Biden at 48%, Trump at 44%. This is a poll, again, taken largely after the indictment. I mean, that’s going to make you – that’s within the margin of error. That’s a statistical tie," Karl said on air.

Karl asked the panelists, "What does that say about Biden if he's barely beating" Trump?

Former chair of the Democrat National Committee, Donna Brazile, said the poll reveals that the country is "very divided."

"It says the country is very divided. The country is really looking to get beyond 2020. It says a lot about where we are as a nation and not where we are in terms of whose personally popular at this time," Brazile opined.

Brazile added that Biden had a "remarkable story to tell."

"I don’t know why anybody should go around talking about Donald Trump when you’ve created 13 million jobs, when you’ve got 35,000 projects all over the country invested in America, rural America to urban America. I don’t know if anyone should spend all their time talking about a former president who’s been indicted and faced more charges when you talk about what you are doing to help the American people lower prescription drug prices," Brazile said.

Former Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, a Republican, noted that both Biden and Trump had low approval ratings.

Hogan added that he believes a majority of the country doesn't want either to run for re-election.

"Another poll conducted after the indictment found that almost half of the country supports the indictment and that 47% of Americans think charges against Trump are politically motivated," Fox News reported.
