MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis lead President Joe Biden among registered voters in the race for president in 2024, according to a new Marquette Law School poll released Thursday.

Poll results show that President Biden is behind former President Trump by five percentage points among registered voters, with 52% for Trump and 47% for Biden. Biden is also behind DeSantis, who launched his presidential campaign this week, with 48% for Biden and 52% for DeSantis.

Organizers noted that many voters showed a reluctance to choose between either Biden and DeSantis or Biden and Trump. When given the option between both pairs, both Republican candidates were selected, with it being a wider margin between Trump and Biden.

In both cases, organizers highlighted how about a quarter of those surveyed on that point avoided choosing. This could indicate volatility in the coming months as candidate choices are affirmed, according to organizers.

The poll was conducted May 8-18 and surveyed 1,010 adults nationwide. It has a margin of error of +/-3.7 percentage points. It includes 833 registered voters, with a margin of error of +/-4.1 percentage points.
