New polling from Rasmussen Wednesday reveals that President Donald Trump has surged to tie his Democratic campaign opponent Joe Biden, erasing a ten point lead on the part of the latter to tie Biden within the margin of error.
The Rasmussen poll released Wednesday reveals that Trump trails Biden by a figure of 45% to 47%, within the poll’s 2% margin of error. This poll contrasts sharply with a Rasmussen poll from weeks ago, which scored the President trailing Joe Biden by a figure of 40% to 50%.
The polling could indicate that the Presidential race is on in full swing, with the traditional large lead held by the challenger of an incumbent evaporating as voters begin asking serious questions about the governance of the country and the political issues at hand.
The White House Watch poll also reveals that President Trump has greater support within the Republican Party that Biden does from Democrats, with Trump securing the likely vote of 81% of Republicans and Biden only getting 74% of Democrats.
Rasmussen was one of the most accurate major pollsters to gauge the 2016 Presidential election. Wednesday’s White House Watch poll, which the company will repeat every week until election day, was conducted with a national pool of 2,500 likely voters.
Despite the picture painted by methodologically dubious polls, it appears the race for the White House is on and intensely competitive.
WATCH: “Are You A Junkie?” Joe Biden FLIPS On CBS Reporter After Question About Cognitive Test
Biden didn’t appreciate the question.
Joe Biden responded angrily to a question from a CBS News reporter on taking a cognitive test Wednesday, asking Errol Barnett if he was a “junkie” and stating that he should have to take a drug test in order to interview Biden with the assumption he was taking cocaine.
“No, I haven’t taken a test… Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man! That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program, you take a test whether you’re taking cocaine or not? Are you a junkie?”
The inference that CBS reporter Errol Barnett is a junkie would’ve almost certainly been blasted as offensive if President Trump or another public figure made the claim. At the most, Biden’s ad hominem response to the legitimate question reveals his sensitivity to claims of his own cognitive decline.
“I know you’re trying to goad me… I’m so looking forward to having an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president in the debates.”
President Trump has argued that Biden should take an equivalent of the Montreal Cognitive Fitness Test, which he took around a year ago with results indicating strong cognitive capacity. The question of mental acuity has consistently arisen as Biden frequently commits mental errors and gaffes during public appearances, ranging from forgetting which state he’s in, confusing his wife and his sister, and even forgetting what office he’s campaigning for.
Biden went on to struggle to pronounce the phrase “physical fitness.”
