Donald Trump is now leading President Joe Biden among young and Hispanic voters, according to a new poll.

The USA Today/Suffolk University survey found that 39 per cent of Hispanic voters now back the former president compared to 34 per cent supporting his Democratic successor.

Mr Trump also has a four percentage point lead among voters under 35, with 37 per cent to Mr Biden’s 33 per cent.

These demographics typically vote Democrat so the findings spell potential trouble for the incumbent going into the 2024 presidential race, even as his GOP rival faces a slew of criminal trials.

Mr Trump began the new year by attacking the federal election interference case against him, while his Republican challengers Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley spoke out to say they would pardon him if they were elected president.

Mr Trump is also reportedly concerned that some conservative justices on the Supreme Court may rule against him concerning his removal from ballots in two states under the 14th Amendment’s ban on insurrectionists holding public office.

Advisers to Mr Trump could file challenges as soon as today opposing the decisions in Colorado and Maine, according to The New York Times.
