New Polls Showed Biden Up 16% and rising


Older voters, women, abandon Trump entirely while others are simply walking away and not looking back.

Daily Beast: Having returned to the White House after his three-day hospitalization with COVID-19, President Donald Trump is trying to figure out how to salvage his campaign—and it’s clear he has a lot of work to do.

A CNN/SSRS poll published Tuesday morning shows that Biden has opened up his biggest lead of the campaign so far, with 57 percent of likely voters saying they will back Biden compared to Trump’s 41 percent.

The 16 percentage-point lead was recorded after last week’s debate between the two men, and mostly after Trump’s COVID-19 infection was made public Friday morning.

The numbers are similar to those seen in an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday, and conducted before the president’s COVID-19 announcement, which gave Biden a still-hefty 14 percentage-point lead.

Cnn: Likely voters are more apt to consider Biden the candidate who would unite the country (61% Biden to 33% Trump), who is honest and trustworthy (58% Biden to 33% Trump), who cares about people like you (58% Biden to 38% Trump), who has a clear plan to solve the nation’s problems (55% to 39%) and who would keep Americans safe from harm (55% to 43%).

Biden has expanded his edge over Trump among women, from 57% to 37% in September to 66% to 32% now.

Likely voters broadly prefer Biden over Trump on a number of issues that voters consider critically important in the race, including the coronavirus outbreak (59% prefer Biden, 38% Trump), health care (59% to 39%), racial inequality in America (62% to 36%), nominations to the Supreme Court (57% to 41%) and crime and safety (55% to 43%). The two are about even over who would better handle the economy (50% say Biden, 48% Trump), similar to where they have been among registered voters in recent polling.

  1. There is no way Trump will go peacefully into “retirement” as it means prison for his many crimes. He hasn’t smiled since he came back from hospital. Is he ready to do an Epstein and disappear to a beach in Tel Aviv? Are we in for an “October surprise” that will totally reshuffle the deck? We live in interesting times…

  2. Potential vote-rigging aside, people have chaos-fatigue, and have grown demonstrably tired of Trump’s antics. Hopefully, the world will thank us on 20 January 2021, when this clown show leaves town, and it wouldn’t surprise me at all, if when Trump loses, he refuses to show up at Biden’s inauguration.
