Trump scorching Biden by double digits in new KY poll

 October 9, 2023

He faces indictments, civil lawsuits, and never-ending negative media coverage, but former President Donald Trump, simply speaking, is winning.

And he's winning big, according to an Emerson College poll.

According to Breitbart, the former president is destroying President Joe Biden in a hypothetical matchup in Kentucky, leaving the elderly, confused president in his dust by a whopping 29 points.

Breitbart noted:

The poll, published on Friday, reveals that 55 percent of the 450 registered voters surveyed back Trump in a rematch of the 2020 election, while just 26 percent support Biden.

The poll also indicated that 12% of respondents are interested in backing another candidate, while 7% are still undecided.

Even if Biden won the remaining 19%, which wouldn't happen, he'd still be 10 points behind Trump, making Kentucky a lost cause for the Biden campaign in 2024.

Trump's support is so unbelievably strong in the state that 66% of respondents said they cannot "think of anything that [he] could do or say in the next several months that would make [them] choose not to support him."

Breitbart added:

Biden holds an abysmal approval rating in the Bluegrass State at just 22 percent, placing him 40 points underwater as 62 percent of poll participants disapprove of his performance.

Notably, while Kentucky is typically a reliable red state, Democrat Gov. Andy Beshear holds a comfortable lead on his Republican opponent, Attorney General Daniel Cameron.

"While Biden is an unpopular figure among Kentucky voters, Beshear has been able to separate himself from the president: he holds a 66% approval rating within his own party, and a 34% approval among both independent and Republican voters,” said Spencer Kimball, the executive director of Emerson College Polling.

Some social media users pointed out that they believe Beshear will eventually be groomed to fill Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's seat when he decides to leave the upper chamber.

"Republicans need to understand that Beshear is young and popular, and Dems will have him run for senate once McConnell retires or passes on. They need to find a really good candidate and groom them for it to discourage it. It will happen," one X user wrote.

Trump has also bested Biden in national hypothetical matchup polls, which is the DNC's absolute worst nightmare.
