Biden Leads Trump By 22 Percent In Key Subgroup, 2024’s Latest Polling Says

In new polling from Quinnipiac University, President Joe Biden led Donald Trump by an absolutely massive margin among women who were also registered voters. Behind Biden’s campaign was a full 58 percent from that subgroup, while only 36 percent were with Trump — giving Biden a lead of 22 percent!

Exit polling from the 2020 presidential race that was publicized by The New York Times suggests that Biden achieving these margins among women would significantly improve upon his win that year, when Edison Research pinned Biden’s support at 57 percent of women, with Trump capturing 42 percent.

In the Qunnipiac numbers, Biden also led by six percent among registered voters in general, getting half the support to Trump’s 44 percent.

As for the Democratic support among women, election results since the Supreme Court’s decision in 2022 that overturned national legal protections for abortion have proven the issue remains pressing, even in traditionally GOP-leaning contexts.

Just last year, Democratic Governor Andy Beshear of Kentucky won another term in the often very “red” state against a Trump-endorsed Republican challenger in a race where abortion became a big issue. And in elections held in tandem, Ohio voters — hailing from a state that Trump won in both 2016 and 2020 — passed an amendment to their state Constitution establishing a baseline of legal protections for abortion. A selection of other states approved similar measures in balloting the year prior.

Trump, meanwhile, has taken ownership of and pride in the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, which they did with three nominees of his on the bench of just nine members overall. “Today, we should be marking 51 years of Roe v. Wade and the promise of reproductive freedom for all. Instead, Donald Trump took away women’s right to make personal choices and gave that power to Republican judges and politicians. That is his legacy,” Trump’s one-time opponent Hillary Clinton said this month.
