A new poll by the Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll has revealed that former President Trump is leading President Biden and Democrat-turned-independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in a hypothetical three-way race for president.
The survey, conducted between October 18-19, showed Trump receiving 39 percent, Biden receiving 33 percent, and Kennedy receiving 19 percent in a three-way race. A separate 9 percent said they were unsure or did not know.
When asked who they would vote for if they had to choose, Trump received 42 percent support, Biden received 36 percent, and Kennedy received 22 percent.
In a two-way race, Trump holds a 5 percentage-point lead over Biden, with the former president receiving 46 percent and Biden receiving 41 percent. The survey noted that Biden gained 1 percentage point since a similar survey conducted in September, while Trump gained 2 percentage points.
Biden still leads Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley in separate head-to-head matchups. Between Biden and DeSantis, Biden received 44 percent, while DeSantis received 40 percent. Between Biden and Haley, the current president sits at 42 percent, while Haley receives 38 percent.
The survey also indicated that Trump received the highest percentage of support when GOP voters were asked who they would vote for if the 2024 Republican primary were held today.
