With every new poll, President Trump’s ratings are going further down, and former Vice President Joe Biden is securing a healthy lead against his opponent. As per the survey by Monmouth University, Biden is presently maintaining a lead of 10-percentage points against President Trump with less than three months for November’s general election. The nationwide survey conducted by Monmouth University shows that Biden leads Trump with 51 percent to 41 percent among the registered voters. Compared to the last poll by the same organization, Trump’s support increased by two points, but he still lags Biden by a double-digit. The new survey was out just hours after Kamala Harris was selected as Biden’s running mate.
The poll also finds that 4 percent of the registered voters haven’t decided about their support. The rest of 4 percent is divided between Libertarian Jo Jorgensen and Green Party’s Howie Hawkins. The new poll clearly indicates the rising lead for Joe Biden as he heads into the crucial stage of the national conventions later in August and the decline for President Trump. Democrats decided to go for a virtual convention next week, and Republicans would be gathering remotely a week after that. Historically, all the presidential candidates have seen a slump in their poll figures just after the official nomination announcement from their party. It would be quite interesting to figure out if the trend continues this year or that Biden can change it altogether.
The coronavirus pandemic has indirectly helped Biden increase voters’ support, as Trump failed to control the total number of positive cases and deaths. Half of the voters who took part in the poll strongly believe that they are unlikely to support Trump, which was unchanged from June. Thirty-nine percent of the voters are certain to vote for Biden compared to 35 for Trump. On the other hand, 54 percent of the voters said that they hold unfavorable views towards the president. The poll was conducted by phone from August 6 to 10, with a sample size of 868 adults. Results are based on the responses from 785 registered voters. The error margin is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.Dr. Dhillon Randeep
