(TheProudRepublic.com) – Signaling the country’s longing for a return to greatness, former President Donald Trump has emerged with a notable lead over Joe Biden among independent voters in a recent poll conducted by Cygnal in November.
This survey indicates that Trump not only enjoys a more favorable view among these voters, with a six-point lead over Biden, but also a higher preference. Specifically, 44% of independent voters lean towards Trump, compared to 38% who support Biden, leaving 18% undecided.
Despite Trump’s edge with independents, Biden holds a slight overall lead among all voters, with 47% favoring him compared to Trump’s 45%. Biden’s strength becomes more pronounced when pitted against a generic Republican, where he gains a four-point lead.
However, the dynamics changed when Democrat-turned-independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr. entered the race. In this three-way scenario, Biden leads narrowly with 40%, followed by Trump at 39% and Kennedy at 12%.
In a more detailed breakdown, Trump secures the largest portion of support from independent voters in a three-way race. He attracts 36% of these voters, while Biden garners 30% and Kennedy 17%.
This poll, which included 2,000 likely voters in the general election, was conducted from late October to early November. It holds a margin of error of plus or minus 2.16%.
These findings come amidst a series of national and state-level polls where Trump has strongly performed against Biden. For instance, a New York Times/Siena survey recently revealed Trump leading Biden in five crucial swing states, including Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada.
An Emerson College survey also presented Trump as leading or tying with Biden in several key states. In Georgia, Trump was ahead by 8 points (49% to 41%), in Pennsylvania by 4 points (49% to 45%), in Nevada by 3 points (47% to 44%), and in Arizona by 2 points (46% to 44%). The two were tied in Wisconsin at 45%, while Biden had a slim 2-point lead in Michigan (45% to Trump’s 43%).
