Election 2024 live updates: Kamala Harris edges ahead of Trump and Biden in new poll

A new poll shows Vice President Kamala Harris has a better shot than President Joe Biden at defeating Donald Trump in the 2024 election. The survey, conducted by the Democratic firm Bendixen & Amandi, shows Biden slightly behind Trump, 42 to 43 per cent, with Harris inching past the former president 42 to 41 per cent.

The eyes of the world are on Biden as he hosts the Nato summit in Washington DC amid concerns about his fitness to contest the election and serve another term in office and fresh calls for him to quit the 2024 race.

Meanwhile, Trump’s recent denial that he knows anything about Project 2025, a 900-page proposal by the Heritage Foundation think-tank for a radical reconfiguring of the US federal government to suit hard-line conservatives, has been ridiculed by one of his former Republican allies.

“This is preposterous if you look at the collaborators and the authors of this plan,” commented ex-Mike Pence adviser Olivia Troye on CNN, saying she sat in on those policy meetings.

Naming ex-Trump administration figures John McEntee, Stephen Miller, Ben Carson, and Ken Cuccinelli, Troye added that Trump knows that “the plan is so extreme that it is damaging to his possibility of getting elected”.
