Biden Widens His Lead Over Trump In Latest Nationwide Poll

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has widened his lead over President Trump despite keeping a low profile in the last two months.

Biden doubled his lead over Trump to 12 points as voters expressed disapproval with the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus, racial tensions and the economy, The Hill reports, citing the latest Harvard CAPS/Harris poll.

The survey found that “fifty-six percent of likely voters said they would vote for Biden if the election was held today, while 44 percent said they would back Trump, wider than the Democrat’s 6-point lead in the same poll last month,” according to The Hill.

“Forty-three percent of voters said they approved for Trump, down four points from the last Harvard CAPS/Harris survey, and the lowest since early 2018. Meanwhile, 57 percent of voters said they disapproved of the president.”

As noted by The Hill, “polls out of Florida, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Michigan also show Biden leading the president, though with narrower margins, raising the prospect the election could tighten with over four months to go before the election.”

Trump has tried to draw the presumptive Democratic nominee into the fray, believing the gaffe-prone former vice president would make some potentially game-changing mistakes during unscripted moments in the public eye. But Biden is bot taking the bait.
