Joe Biden defeated then-President Donald Trump in one of the closest and most controversial elections in U.S. history.
But despite pulling out the victory in 2020, the Democrats are now having problems with the effects of Biden policies on the economy and American safety.
And Trump’s latest poll numbers in swing states show a growing momentum that is absolutely terrifying Biden supporters.
Which history will repeat itself?
The last time there was a Presidential election re-match was all the way back in 1956.
That year, for the second cycle in a row, Republican incumbent Dwight D. Eisenhower defeated Democrat Adlai Stevenson II.
Ike won by 15-points and carried 41 out of the then-48 states comprising the United States.
The 1956 election was actually an improvement for the man who built the interstate system than his original landslide victory over Stevenson in 1952.
With each passing day, it seems more and more likely that America is headed to its first Presidential election rematch in nearly seven decades; former President Donald Trump is hoping to avoid Stevenson’s fate.
The 45th President of the United States would much prefer to mimic the story of Grover Cleveland.
In 1884, Democrat Grover Cleveland squeaked by Republican James Blaine to win the White House, much how Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.
However, Cleveland lost his re-election bid in another incredibly close contest against Benjamin Harrison, similar to Joe Biden controversially defeating Trump in 2020.
And then in 1892, Cleveland challenged Harrison to a rematch, and ironically, with Stevenson’s grandfather as his running mate and with help from a prominent third-party candidate also in the race, Cleveland won his second term in office.
If Trump wants to follow the path of Cleveland and not Stevenson, then he’s going to need to find success in a small handful of swing states.
Who will win the swing states?
Heading into the 2024 Presidential election, all eyes are on a relatively small group of purple states.
In all likelihood, voters in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin will decide who will be the next President of the United States.
With that in mind, Bloomberg News/Morning Consult conducted a survey of those seven swing states that will likely decide the election.
Trump beat Biden overall by 4 points in the purple states, with a 47-43 advantage over the sitting President.
And the real estate and entertainment mogul has to be happy with the individual break down as well.
Trump beat Biden in five out of the seven swing states, survey by anywhere from 1 to 5 points.
He also tied with the incumbent in Michigan.
The only state he trailed was in Nevada, where Biden bested Trump by 3-points.
However, Trump also dominated Biden issue by issue.
Swing-state voters responded saying they trusted Trump more than Biden on the important issues of the economy, immigration, crime, U.S.-China relations, guns, the Russia-Ukraine war, regulation of tech companies, housing, infrastructure, and labor and unions.
