More Americans say they trust former President Trump on the economy and inflation than they do President Biden, a new poll found.

The ABC News/Ipsos poll found that economy and inflation were among the top issues for Americans in this upcoming presidential election, with more Americans saying they trust Trump on the issues than Biden. Eighty-eight percent of Americans said the economy was important when deciding who to vote for and 85 percent said the same for inflation.

Forty-six percent of Americans said they trust Trump on the economy, while 32 percent said the same of Biden. Another 21 percent said they trusted neither of the presidential frontrunners on the issue.

Forty-four percent of Americans also said they trusted Trump to handle inflation, compared to the 30 percent who responded the same for Biden. Another 25 percent said they trusted neither candidate on the issue.

The poll also found that more respondents said they are not as well off financially since Biden took office than those who said they are better off under Biden. Forty-three percent said their financial situation is not as well off since Biden became president, 40 percent said they are about the same and 16 percent said they are better off.

The poll also surveyed respondents on a hypothetical head-to-head matchup between Biden and Trump, finding that the race still remains close between the two frontrunners.

Trump had 46 percent of support while Biden had 44 percent among all adults surveyed, but among registered voters, Biden had 46 percent of support and Trump had 45 percent. Biden’s lead slightly increased when broken down by those who were likely to vote, receiving 49 percent of support while Trump received 45 percent.

The ABC News/Ipsos poll was conducted online among 2,260 adults April 25-30 and has a margin of sampling error of 2 percentage points.
