President Biden is having a difficult time competing with former President Trump on issues such as the economy and the border, despite recent job growth numbers and slowing inflation, a new poll shows.
The numbers come despite Biden’s recent argument that his administration’s economic policies are starting to work, telling voters in Michigan on Thursday that “inflation is coming down” and that they had “created 800,000 manufacturing jobs.”
Here’s a snapshot of where the battle to lead the Republican Party stands.

ONE NEW POLL: Biden trails Trump, the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination, by 23 points when voters were asked who would be a better candidate to handle the economy, according to the results of a national NBC News poll released Sunday. 55% of registered voters said they believe Trump would be the better candidate to steer the economy, compared to 33% who chose Biden.
TWO NEW FUNDRAISING DEVELOPMENTS: Haley’s team says they hauled in $16.5 million in fundraising last month across all of their campaign committees, including $11.7 million from small-dollar grassroots supporters.
Squad members Reps. Cori Bush, D-Mo., and Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., have both so far been out-raised by their more moderate Democrat challengers, as primary threats mount.
ONE NEW ENDORSEMENT:Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., is throwing his support behind Trump-backed Republican Bernie Moreno for the Ohio Senate. Tuberville made the endorsement ahead of the state’s heated March primary race, where Moreno is challenging GOP candidates Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose and state Sen. Matt Dolan for the Republican nomination.
“Always, it’s got to be who is going to be a good president. Obviously, you always have to think that because in case of emergency. Things happen, right?”
