Forty-nine percent of likely Texas voters would vote for former President Donald Trump, while 40% would back President Joe Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, according to a new Emerson College/The Hill poll.
Here are how the poll results break down:
- 8% say they will vote for someone else and 3% say they were undecided who they would vote for.
- 39% say the FBI's raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate makes them more likely to support Trump in 2024, compared to 31% who said it makes them less likely to support him. Thirty percent say it makes no difference.,
- 56% disapprove of the job Biden is doing as president, compared to 37% who approve.
- 40% say the economy is the top issue, followed by 16% who say abortion access is.
The poll conducted Sept. 20-22, surveyed 1,000 likely voters in Texas. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.02 percentage points.
