Ron DeSantis says Trump and Biden are too old to be president
President Joe Biden is less popular among voters aged 18 to 34 than former President Donald Trump, according to an NBC poll.
The group of voters that helped Biden win the presidency in 2020 now leans more toward Mr. Trump with 46% of the group's support.
Although Mr. Trump has a four-point lead over Mr. Biden, the margin is still narrow enough to tip in the president's favor as the country heads into the primary season.
While CNN has findings that reflect similar results, polls from Fox News, Quinnipiac and CBS show Biden leading Trump with younger voters.
But Mr. Biden may face more trouble as a Republican candidate, Nikki Haley, beats Mr. Biden in a race.
Across the board, voters have said they want another choice for president in 2024 besides Mr. Biden and Mr. Trump. The age of both candidates has concerned voters – especially those aged 18 to 34.
Trump leads Biden in new poll as conflict in Israel fuels criticism
A new poll from NBC News this weekend shows President Joe Biden in his worst position to date — with no signs of clearer skies ahead.
The incumbent now trails his likely 2024 challenger, Donald Trump, among voters nationwide. despite the former president's continued legal escapades, Mr. Biden trails his opponent 46-44.
The reason for his continued slide is clear: Americans are fast becoming burdened with the president's handling of US foreign policy and America's presence on the world stage. The spiraling conflict in Israel has only served to turn America's younger, long-leaning Democratic voters against the president as seven in 10 voters aged 18-34 disapprove of Mr. Biden's response.
His approval rating is now at 40 percent — the lowest NBC has recorded at any time during the Biden presidency. This poll also marks the first time Biden has trailed Trump in an NBC survey.
A huge generation gap in the US has grown in recent weeks amid the Israel-Hamas conflict. Older generations have largely favored the status quo in Washington, where politicians have lined up to defend Israel's military actions in the Gaza Strip and elsewhere.
Younger Americans have been broadly divided in favor of the US call for a ceasefire in the region and are largely opposed to the recent Israeli military campaign that has left a large number of civilian dead in the Gaza Strip.

Trump is most popular among younger voters in the NBC poll
Former President Donald Trump is more popular among younger voters, according to NBC polls.
When voters aged 18 to 34 were asked which candidate they would vote for in a race, 46 percent said Mr. Trump while only 42 percent said Biden.
The findings could spell trouble for Mr. Biden, who managed to win the presidency in 2020 thanks in part to younger voters.
The NBC poll mirrors similar results found by a recent CNN poll, but shows opposite results from the Quinnipiac poll, New York TimesFox News and others showing Mr. Biden has a strong lead with younger voters.

Trump wins the Electoral College, but Biden wins the popular vote
President Joe Biden would win the popular vote but narrowly lose the Electoral College to his predecessor Donald Trump if the election were held today.
The new survey comes from Stack Data Strategy, showing Mr Trump would win the Electoral College 292 to 246 with Biden winning the popular vote 49 to 48 percent.
Stack surveyed 15,000 Americans and used those results to make state-level predictions, Politico notes.
Trump's victory is based on his winning four states – Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. These were the states with the closest margins in the 2020 election. They all went from Trump in 2016 to Biden in 2020, and this poll shows Trump taking them back by a narrow margin — 1.4 percent in Arizona, 3, 3 in Georgia, 2.3 in Pennsylvania and 0.9 percent. in Wisconsin.
If other candidates are added to the mix – such as independents Robert F Kennedy Jr and Cornel West, and candidates from the Green and Liberal parties – Mr Trump also manages to win Nevada and its six electoral votes. The additional candidates together garnered 10 percent in that state.
The survey also showed Trump beating Vice President Kamala Harris and California Governor Gavin Newsom.
But Biden beat Florida Gov. Ron DeSandis, winning the Electoral College 359 to 179.
In the four narrow states projected to go to Mr. Trump, when respondents are asked about “other” candidates, they garner a smaller share of the vote – 4 percent in Arizona, 2.6 in Georgia, 3.1 in Pennsylvania, and 3.2 in Wisconsin.
But when respondents were asked specifically about Mr. Kennedy, Mr. West and the availability of third parties, support rose to between 8 and 11 percent.

Where the Republican candidates stand at the polls
After last week's third Republican debate, voters are reassessing how they feel about the remaining GOP candidates.
Ron DeSandis is at about 14 percent.
Nikki Haley counts around 8.8%.
Chris Christie counts around 2.8%.
Vivek Ramaswamy counts around 5%.
Asa Hutchinson, Doug Burgum and Ryan Binkely are all in the polls below 1 percent.
So far, former President Donald Trump remains far ahead of any other candidate in national polls averaging +44 points over his political opponents, according to RealClearPolitics and FiveThirtyEight.
Mr. Trump did not participate in the third debate and instead hosted a rally near the site where the Republican candidates duked it out.
Despite the former president's opposition to joining his fellow candidates on stage, he has a strong lead in swing states over any other campaign – including Democrats.
