President Trump leads Joe Biden 42% to 33% including third party candidates.

Former President Donald Trump is handily beating Joe Biden in the latest CNN poll by a margin of 9 points if third-party candidates are included.

In a two-way race, President Trump leads Biden 49% to 43%. That six point lead marks Trump’s biggest in any major nationwide poll taken in the month of April.

“Our new poll which was conducted by SSRS finds Trump is leading Biden, who has ample work to do with his base, and with independent voters who are breaking to his GOP rival,” CNN’s Manu Raju reported Saturday.

Among all voters, when independent candidates Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Cornel West and Green Party candidate Jill Stein are included in the matchup, Trump holds 42% to Biden’s 33%, with Kennedy at 16%, West at 4% and Stein at 3%.

55% of those polled also say the Trump presidency was a success, but just 39% say the same thing of Biden’s presidency.

From CNN:

Assessing Biden’s time in office so far, 61% say his presidency thus far has been a failure, while 39% say it’s been a success. That’s narrowly worse than the 57% who called the first year of his administration a failure in January 2022, with 41% calling it a success.

Republicans now are more unified around the idea that Trump’s presidency was a success than Democrats are that Biden’s has been one. Overall, 92% of Republicans call Trump’s time in office a success, while just 73% of Democrats say Biden’s has been a success so far. Among independents, 51% say Trump’s presidency was successful, while only 37% see Biden’s as a success.

This data may help explain why Democrats are determined to keep Trump from campaigning around the nation for weeks while his Manhattan “hush money” trial proceeds.
