New September polls between Donald Trump and Joe Biden continue to show a solid lead for the former vice president. However, a narrowing margin coupled with the recent death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg could prove to shake up the polls with just over a month before the election.
First published in September 2020.
New polls from major polling organizations show an average lead of 9% for Joe Biden over Donald Trump in the general election. A poll from the Economist and YouGov shows a favorable 9% lead for Biden, while a new NPR/PBS/Marist poll shows a similar lead.
Approval ratings for Trump rose slightly over the last month. They fell sharply after Black Lives Matter protests broke out at the end of May following the murder of George Floyd but trended upward as fears regarding COVID-19 lessened. With over a month before the election, how both candidates approach the vacancy left by the late Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg could substantially affect voters in key swing states.
As the general election battle heats up, COVID-19 outbreaks are still popping up in the country as schools resume and businesses reopen. Biden has started ramping up advertising campaigns and giving regular virtual addresses about the virus and about his policy platform, while Trump has resumed daily press conferences on a variety of topics.🔷
