24/7 Wall St.–Zogby Analytics Presidential Poll

  • Since our last poll, released May 14th, Trump has improved his position against Democratic frontrunners Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. He is in a statistical dead heat with each candidate.
  • The president is also narrowly defeating the second-tier candidates, senators Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

The president has made in-roads with independents, suburban voters, urban men, and, urban parents, while increasing the level of support among his base — men, consumer blocs, older voters, and union voters.

Nearly half of all likely voters are “silent” Trump supporters. Half disagree (strongly and somewhat disagree combined) that they have to hide their support of the president on certain issues. This number has increased 9 percent since we last polled this topic.

Most groups who support the president agreed with the idea of privately supporting the president, but surprising, majorities of millennials, voters living in large cities, and Hispanics also felt compelled to hide their support for President Trump.
