( – In a recent national poll, President Biden is shown to have a slight edge over former President Donald Trump if they were to face off again in the upcoming November election, holding a six-point lead. However, the dynamics shift in scenarios where the election includes multiple candidates, such as independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr., which narrows Biden’s lead.

Interestingly, in a theoretical match-up against Republican Nikki Haley, the poll suggests she could outperform Biden by five points. Yet, in a scenario with a broader array of candidates, Biden regains a narrow advantage over Haley, who has been vocal about her potential as a stronger Republican candidate against Biden.

This poll, conducted by Quinnipiac University, also highlights the strong likelihood of Biden and Trump securing their respective Democratic and Republican nominations, despite the competitive landscape.

The detailed results from the January 25-29 survey show Biden leading Trump 50%-44% among registered voters, an improvement from a previous tight margin. While other polls in January have shown varying leads, this particular survey underscores Biden’s significant support among Democrats and independents, and a notable gender divide with women increasingly leaning towards Biden.

The addition of candidates like Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Cornell West, and Jill Stein into the hypothetical mix introduces a new dynamic, potentially diluting the primary candidates’ leads but still showing a competitive race.

The poll also touches on the Republican primary race, highlighting Trump’s dominant position and Haley’s challenge as the race progresses, especially with the upcoming primary in her home state.
