Three-way race puts Trump on top of Biden, West: Poll

August 21, 2023

A new Emerson College national poll released Saturday showed former President Donald Trump with a razor-thin lead over President Joe Biden when Green Party candidate Cornel West is in the race.

Trump had 42% in the poll, while Biden had 41% and West had 5%. 13% were undecided.

In a head-to-head matchup between only Trump and Biden, they were essentially tied, but Trump was ahead of Biden by .7% when the numbers weren't rounded up.

Both polls are within the margin of error, of course, which means that it's anyone's guess who would win a general election matchup.

Realistically, third-party support usually drops closer to an election, and those votes would go to Biden.

The so-called "Taylor Swift test" in which the songstress is posited as a candidate, saw Biden's support drop to 39%, while Trump's stayed the same, something which seemed to suggest that Biden's support was softer than Trump's, for whatever that's worth.
