US President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are tied in a potential presidential race in 2024, a new poll revealed.

According to a survey by Grinnell College National released on Wednesday, both Biden and Trump have the support of 40 percent of likely voters. This comes as 14 percent of respondents announced they would vote for someone else, 1 percent said they would not vote, and 4 percent said they were not sure.

Meanwhile, the poll showed that both of the rivals are favoring large support within their own parties, with Biden winning 87 percent of Democrats and Trump winning 80 percent of Republicans.

While Biden has not formally announced his ambition, Trump has told his allies that he is considering another White House bid.

That would complicate life for a long list of other Republicans considering a 2024 run - including Vice President Mike Pence, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Senators Marco Rubio and Tom Cotton - who would have to weigh whether to take on Trump.

Trump, who lost the 2020 election by millions of votes, was blamed for the January 6 Capitol attack. However, he has repeatedly denied responsibility for the violence, which saw his supporters besiege the Capitol to prevent the certification of Biden's victory in the November election.
