Poll Shows Biden and Trump Tied in Virginia Shaking Up 2024 Election Prospects

A recent poll conducted by Fox News shows that President Biden and former President Donald Trump are neck and neck in Virginia, a state that has consistently voted for Democrats in presidential elections since 2004. The poll results, released on Thursday, reveal that both candidates are tied at 48 percent among likely voters in Virginia. This represents a significant drop for President Biden compared to the 10-percentage point lead he had in the state during the 2020 election.

President Biden maintains strong support among black voters, with 73 percent indicating their intention to vote for him in November. Despite this, there has been a decrease in support from black voters compared to the 2020 election, where Biden had an 81-percentage point lead among this demographic according to Fox News Voter Analysis. Biden also leads among suburban women with 58 percent of the vote and college-educated voters with 56 percent.

Conversely, former President Trump continues to have a substantial lead among white evangelical Christians, with 80 percent of them backing him in the upcoming election. Among independent voters, Biden and Trump are nearly tied, with 45 percent supporting Biden and 43 percent supporting Trump.

In a hypothetical five-way race that includes other candidates such as Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Cornel West, and Dr. Jill Stein, Biden narrowly edges out Trump by one percentage point. While Kennedy attracts more voters away from Trump, the shift among left-leaning voters towards West and Stein balances out the impact.

It is crucial for Biden to secure Virginia in the upcoming election, as it has been a consistent win for Democratic candidates since 2004. Democrat pollster Chris Anderson expressed the importance of the state for Biden, noting that he will need to focus on defending his position there. However, Virginia voters show positivity towards the economy and do not favor Trump as strongly on certain issues, which could work in Biden’s favor.

The close race in Virginia reflects a shifting landscape in the state’s political preferences, indicating a potential challenge for President Biden’s re-election bid. This situation underscores the importance of campaign strategies to secure vital swing states like Virginia.
