Former President Donald Trump is ahead of President Joe Biden in a potential White House rematch, according to a new CNN poll, while most Biden supporters say that they are voting against Trump rather than for the current president.

As the presidential primaries indicate that the general election this fall will likely end up being a 2020 rematch, 49% of registered voters said they would vote for Trump, while 45% said they would support Biden and 5% said they would support another candidate, according to a CNN poll conducted by SSRS released last week. 

Of the people who voiced support for Biden, 32% said they would be voting for Biden while 68% said they would support him as a way to cast their ballots against Trump. 

Meanwhile, of the Trump supporters, 60% said they would be voting for Trump while 40% said they would be voting against Biden. 

In another hypothetical 2024 matchup, Biden also came in behind Nikki Haley, who is significantly behind Trump in primary polls but remains the only other candidate in the GOP primary.  

Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, came in with 52% to Biden's 39% in the latest poll. 

However, Haley's support seems to come more out of a dislike of Biden rather than love of her. Of Haley supporters, 37% said they would be casting their vote for Haley, while 63% said they would be voting against Biden. 

In comparison, 63% of Biden supporters said they would be casting their vote for the current president while 37% said they would be voting against Haley. 

This poll was conducted with 1,212 adults, including 983 registered voters, from Jan. 25 to 30, and the full sample has a 3.4% margin of error.
