Trump tops Biden by 11 points in new Iowa poll

Former President Trump beat out President Biden by 11 points in a hypothetical faceoff in Iowa, according to a poll.

If such a rematch were held in 2024, 51 percent of likely voters would support Trump, and 40 percent said they would back Biden, a Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll showed Saturday.

Another 4 percent said they would not vote for either candidate and the remaining 5 percent were not sure.

When the candidates faced off in 2020, Trump defeated Biden by about 8 percentage points, carrying the state with 53 percent of the votes.

“Trump won Iowa convincingly in 2020, and that’s reflected in these data,” said pollster J. Ann Selzer told the Des Moines Register.

The new poll surveyed 810  Iowa adults, including 658 likely voters, between Nov. 7 and 10.
