According to a new survey from Quinnipiac University, Former Vice President Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump by 13 points.
Senators Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harries, and Elizabeth Warren also lead over President Trump by several points according to the same survey. Tim Malloy, the assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, issued a statement in which he said:
“It’s a long 17 months to Election Day, but Joe Biden is ahead by landslide proportions.’’
Among the black voters, Biden leads 85 to 12 and 58 to 33 among Hispanics, while the result among the white voters is nearly equal with Trump leading 47 to 46 percent as both candidates have above 90 percent support from their own parties.
The experience from the last presidential election taught us that polls are not necessarily the best indicator for the outcome of the election, with many things depending on the campaign itself and the most important states for both parties like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Trump is the first candidate from the Republican party to win these states since 1998.
According to the same survey, the good news for Trump is that his approval rating rises mostly by the voter optimism about the economy, with seventy percent of Americans describing the economy as excellent or good and 77 percent said that their own personal financial situation is excellent or good. Nevertheless, only 41 percent of the voters think that the economy is good thanks to the Trump administration.
“The Trump bump to 42 percent job approval is nothing to sniff at. It’s one point shy of the best Quinnipiac University survey number ever for President Trump. A very sturdy economy and folks with money in the bank. That is the magic combo the White House hopes to ride to reelection and those numbers remain solid. But Trump does not get that much credit,’’ added Malloy.
The Quinnipiac survey of the Democratic primary fields finds Biden’s support dipping slightly, from 35 percent in the May survey to 30 percent presently. Biden reached as high as 38 percent support in the poll shortly after launching his bid in late March, The Hill reports.
