SHOCK POLL: Biden, Trump Tied As President Erases Ten Point Deficit
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.
