( – A new ABC/Ipsos poll suggested that Americans were nearly evenly split but had slightly more trust in former President Donald Trump than President Joe Biden when it came to leading the country. The two candidates gathered enough delegates this week to become the nominees of their respective parties in the 2024 general election. 

According to the poll, 36 percent of responders stated that they trusted Trump more than Biden, while 33 percent argued the opposite. The remaining respondents, around 30 percent, stated that neither candidate was someone they trusted to handle the country. 

When asked about specific issues, more voters also approved of Trump’s handling of the border crisis, crime, gun violence, as well as the economy and inflation compared to Biden.

On immigration, Trump had almost half of respondents, 45 percent, while only 29 percent expressed the same support for Biden’s handling of the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. Similarly, Trump also received approval from 45 percent of voters when it came to his handling of crime. 

Trump also came ahead when it came to the economy, with 49 percent of respondents expressing greater approval of him, while only 37 percent expressed the same about Biden. 

When it came to gun violence, Trump still came out ahead but with a smaller margin, as 37 percent expressed approval for his handling of gun violence, while only 34 percent had expressed the same about Biden. 

However, Biden had performed better on a few issues. These include climate change and abortion, with 47 percent of respondents preferring Biden handling of abortion while 35 percent preferred Trump’s. Meanwhile, 33 percent of respondents preferred Trump on climate change, while 42 percent preferred Biden.
