In a hypothetical match up in 2024, former US President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden were tied.

According to a new Wall Street Journal poll released Friday, 57% of voters were unhappy with Biden’s job performance while 55% said that they had an unfavorable view of Trump. The poll that surveyed 1,500 registered voters from March 2 to March 7, found that both Biden and Trump each would get 45% support from voters in a theoretical match up in 2024.

The Hill reported that a rematch of the 2020 presidential race two years later is a distinct possibility. While Trump has repeatedly flirted with a run for reelection, Biden has said that he will run for a second term should he remain healthy. Biden beat Trump by about 7 million votes in the 2020 popular vote, however, the race was tight in the battle for the Electoral College votes. Five key states -- Wisconsin, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Arizona -- were won by Biden and that decided the race in his favor.

According to CNN's Chris Cillizza, Trump is probably going to run for president again in 2024, and, yes, he would have a very real chance of winning.

Trump recently spoke at a rally Saturday night in Florence, South Carolina. There he once again flirted with launching another White House campaign in 2024. He said that "we may have to run again," reported Fox News.

He said that in 2024 "we are going to take back that beautiful, beautiful White House," and then he wondered "who will do that."

The former President remains the most popular and influential politician in the Republican Party.

South Carolina plays a key role in US presidential politics. It holds the first southern primary and votes third in the Grand Old Party’s presidential nominating calendar. Trump’s rally "is much about impacting Washington, DC in 2022 as it is about 2024," said Dave Wilson, who is the president of the Columbia, South Carolina based conservative Christian nonprofit the Palmetto Family Council. Wilson suggested that the former President could use the recent rally to "see exactly where the voters are to make an informed choice about what he’s going to do in 2024."
