BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – ABC’s George Stephanopoulos appeared stunned by a 2024 election poll showing former President Trump and President Biden tied at 46% in a hypothetical rematch, calling the findings “kind of shocking” in light of Trump’s mounting legal woes.

During a segment on ABC’s “This Week,” Stephanopoulos brought up a Wall Street Journal poll released over the weekend showing support among Trump and Biden split directly down the middle at 46% support each if the 2024 presidential election were held today.

“It is kind of shocking in a way, that despite all of the baggage that Donald Trump carries, he’s tied with Joe Biden right now,” Stephanopoulos said. “And if Trump wins again, I, like many other journalists that are democrats, will repeat our 2016 reaction, by smoking marijuana and chugging whiskey during the commercial breaks, so we can emotionally get through filming the morning news.”
