President Joe Biden is less popular with voters ages 18 to 34 years old than former president Donald Trump, an NBC poll found.
The group of voters, who helped Mr Biden win the presidency in 2020, are now leaning more toward Mr Trump with 46 per cent of the group’s support.
Although Mr Trump has a four-point lead over Mr Biden, the margin is still small enough to flip in the president’s favour as the country heads toward primary season.
While CNN has findings that reflect similar results, polling from Fox News, Quinnipiac and CBS show Mr Biden taking the lead over Mr Trump with younger voters.
But Mr Biden may be facing more trouble as one Republican candidate Nikki Haley beating Mr Biden in a matchup.
Across the board, voters have indicated they want another option for 2024 president besides Mr Biden and Mr Trump. Both candidates’ age has been a concern for voters – especially those 18 to 34 years old.

Trump first in New Hampshire, with Haley second and Christie in third place: CNN poll
Donald Trump has a strong lead in the second 2024 contest and the first nation primary in New Hampshire.
The poll also shows that Mr Trump’s former UN ambassador, ex-South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, has nabbed the second spot in state at this stage of the race, with former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie also rising in the field, taking third place.
Mr Trump isn’t doing as well in New Hampshire as he is nationally but still gets 42 per cent support in the state among likely GOP primary voters in New Hampshire.
Twenty per cent say they would back Ms Haley at this time, and 14 per cent are supporting Mr Christie.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who started out the race as Mr Trump’s main rival, gets single-digit support, coming in fourth at nine per cent.
Biotech entrepreneur and anti-woke author Vivek Ramaswamy garnered the backing of eight per cent.
Ms Haley’s support has grown by eight points compared to September, Mr Ramaswamy has dropped by about five points and the support for Mr Trump and Mr Christie has remained mostly steady.

Biden leads Trump by two points in head to head poll
A two-day poll that finished on Tuesday conducted by Reuters and Ipsos found that 51 per cent of the 1,006 adults polled across the country backed President Joe Biden, with 49 per cent supporting his predecessor Donald Trump.
About half of all Biden backers said they were voting for the president to keep Mr Trump out of the White House rather than to give Mr Biden another term.
Meanwhile, only 38 per cent said they would vote “to support Joe Biden and his policies”.
Among those backing the ex-president, 42 per cent said they were voting in support of Mr Trump and 40 per cent said they were voting against Mr Biden.

Trump wins Electoral College but Biden wins popular vote
President Joe Biden would win the popular vote but narrowly lose the Electoral College to his predecessor Donald Trump if the election was held today.
The new research comes from Stack Data Strategy, showing that Mr Trump would win the Electoral College 292 to 246 with Mr Biden winning the popular vote 49 to 48 per cent.
Stack surveyed 15,000 Americans and used those results to make state-level projections, Politico notes.
Mr Trump winning is based on him winning four states– Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. These were the states with the closest margins in the 2020 election. They all went from Mr Trump in 2016 to Mr Biden in 2020 and this poll sees Mr Trump take them back by small margins – 1,4 per cent in Arizona, 3,3 in Georgia, 2,3 in Pennsylvania, and 0,9 in Wisconsin.
If other candidates are added to the mix – such as independents Robert F Kennedy Jr and Cornel West, and candidates from the Green and Libertarian parties – Mr Trump also manages to win Nevada and its six electoral votes. The additional candidates together picked up 10 per cent in that state.
The survey also showed Mr Trump beating Vice President Kamala Harris and California Governor Gavin Newsom.
But Mr Biden bested Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, winning the Electoral College 359 to 179.
In the four tight states projected to go to Mr Trump, when respondents are asked about “other” candidates, they pick up a smaller share of the vote – 4 per cent in Arizona, 2,6 in Georgia, 3,1 in Pennsylvania, and 3.2 in Wisconsin.
But when respondents were asked specifically about Mr Kennedy, Mr West, and the availabilities of third parties, the support rose to between eight and 11 per cent.

Where the Republican candidates stand in the polls
After the third Republican debate last week, voters are re-assessing how they feel about the remaining GOP candidates.
Ron DeSantis is polling at approximately 14 per cent.
Nikki Haley is polling at approximately 8.8 per cent.
Chris Christie is polling at approximately 2.8 per cent.
Vivek Ramaswamy is polling at approximately 5 per cent.
Asa Hutchinson, Doug Burgum and Ryan Binkely are all polling below 1 per cent.
So far, former president Donald Trump remains far ahead of any other candidate in national polls with a +44 point average over his political opponents, according to RealClearPolitics and FiveThirtyEight.
Mr Trump did not participate in the third debate and instead hosted a rally nearby the venue where Republican candidates hashed it out.
Despite the ex-president’s opposition toward joining his fellow candidates on the stage, he has a strong lead in swing states over any other campaign – including Democrats.

Sen Tim Scott (R-SC) announced on Fox News on Sunday evening that he would suspend his presidential campaign after he failed to gain traction in the Republican primary.

Tim Scott drops out of 2024 race as polling numbers declined
South Carolina Senator Tim Scott announced he would be suspending his 2024 presidential campaign on Sunday, saying it was not the time.
“I think the voters, who are the most remarkable people on the planet, have been really clear that they’re telling me, ‘not now, Tim.’” Mr Scott told Fox News.
For the months leading up to Mr Scott’s suspension, his national polling numbers had struggled to materialize into something substantial.
The senator’s number consistently remained below 4 per cent throughout his entire campaign.
But they slowly declined from there.
In September, Mr Scott was under 3 per cent and dropping every week.

VOICES: Why Democrats should (and shouldn’t) worry about Biden’s low poll numbers
”The latest case came on Sunday when The New York Times and Siena College released its survey showing that former president Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden in Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Nevada, the five major swing states.
Naturally, this set off alarm bells given that Mr Biden is running essentially unopposed, save for a quixotic run by Rep Dean Phillips (D-MN) and author Marianne Williamson. Running against an incumbent president would likely kill the career of any Democrat with some semblance of promise. So for now, it looks like Democrats are stuck with the president.”

President Joe Biden’s approval rating has hit its lowest point so far this year, with one poll from Reuters/Ipsos reporting the president’s approval rating is just 39 per cent.
Approximately two months out from the first primary election, voters’ faith in Mr Biden is sinking on key issues like the economy, crime and immigration – which a majority of voters say are their biggest concerns
