According to an article in INOVA, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin would defeat President Joe Biden in Virginia if the two were matched up in next year’s presidential election, according to a new poll conducted by the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs at Virginia Commonwealth University.

If the election were held today, 44% of the respondents said they would vote for Youngkin, while 37% would vote for Biden, the poll found. Youngkin, who was elected governor in 2021 but can’t run for re-election, has been mentioned as a potential late entry into the Republican presidential race.

If the candidates were Biden and former President Donald Trump, 43% of respondents favored Biden, while 40% favored Trump. If the candidates were Biden and current Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, the vote would be evenly split, with each candidate receiving  41%.

Youngkin emerged in 2021 as a virtual unknown but went on to defeat former governor Terry McCauliffe.
