This is seen as creating an opportunity for Donald Trump, the likely Republican presidential nominee, to return to the White House.

The poll revealed that 80-year-old Biden and 77-year-old Trump have the same support rate of 39 percent in a possible head-to-head race in the elections to be held in November next year. According to the poll, one in five voters is undecided.
It found that the Democrats have stronger support among voters most concerned about protecting abortion rights, while the Republicans have an advantage among voters concerned about crime rates.

Trump remains politically viable despite four separate lawsuits against him. Former President Trump is expected to spend most of the election year in courtrooms while campaigning.
One result of the poll that could be unsettling for Biden was the finding that Trump is currently ahead, albeit by a small margin, in the 7 states with the closest results in the 2020 presidential elections. Accordingly, Trump has 41 percent support in Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Nevada and Michigan, while Biden has 35 percent. 24 percent are undecided.

The poll was conducted by asking questions to 4,413 American adults across the country between September 8-14.

According to the poll, candidates still have a chance to influence a large proportion of voters and change their decisions.

In the 2020 elections, Biden, who outpaced his opponent in the support of independent voters, may not achieve the same success this time, according to the survey. While 32 percent of independent voters who responded to the survey said they would vote for Trump if the elections were held now, this rate remained at 30 percent for Biden. Of this group of voters, 38 percent have still not made up their minds.

In the group of voters who are absolutely sure that they will go to the polls next year, Biden is ahead. The US President has the support of 49 percent of this group, compared to 38 percent for Trump. 13 percent are undecided.
Biden and Democrats in general have a significant advantage in protecting abortion rights. These rights even receive support from circles beyond Biden's party. In June last year, the Supreme Court's decision to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which constitutionally guaranteed the right to abortion, caused widespread repercussions in the country. Eighty-eight percent of Democrats said abortion rights were important in determining the color of their vote. One in six voters said it was the most important issue or the only issue they cared about.

In addition, one in three Republicans think the Democratic Party has the best approach to the issue, and more than half of independents favor Democrats over Republicans on abortion rights.
Voters who responded to the poll expressed concern about Biden's age and fitness. 77 percent of respondents and 65 percent of Democrats said Biden is too old to be president. Only 39 percent thought Biden had the mental capacity to be president.
Fifty-six percent think Trump is too old. 54 percent think Trump is mentally prepared to meet the challenges of being president.
Both men are viewed favorably by around 40 percent of voters. However, 43 percent of Americans have a "very unfavorable" view of Trump, compared to 38 percent for Biden.

Crime is one of the most important issues for voters of both parties. Eighty-eight percent of those surveyed, and a strong cross-section of both Republicans, Democrats and independents, said crime would be an important factor in determining their vote.
Republicans have the advantage on this issue. Independents trust Republicans more than Democrats to tackle this problem, by 34 percent to 22 percent.

One issue voters continue to be concerned about is the economy. Despite the White House's insistence that the economy is strong, 73 percent of respondents believe the economic situation in the country is the same or worse than it was before the COVID-19 pandemic.

When asked, "Do you expect the economic situation to be better a year from now?" only 35 percent of respondents answered in the affirmative.
