Many on the Right are highly suspicious of polls given how far off they were leading up to the 2016 election. The polls, of course, always seem to lean in the Democrat’s favor.
So when a national poll comes out that shows Trump taking the lead, you can bet he’s farther ahead than they are saying and surely newsworthy.
The new daily poll from Rasmussen Reports has President Trump taking the lead nationally:
White House Watch
Trump 48%, Biden 47%
Monday, October 26, 2020
It’s neck-and-neck, with President Trump just barely ahead in Rasmussen Reports’ first daily White House Watch survey.
The latest national telephone and online survey finds Trump edging Democrat Joe Biden 48% to 47% among Likely U.S. Voters. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, while two percent (2%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Last Wednesday, Biden held a 49% to 46% lead, but the race has been tightening since early in the month. This is the first time Trump has been ahead since mid-September.
Rasmussen Reports has been releasing White House Watch weekly on Wednesdays since the beginning of July. But starting today, White House Watch will be posted daily at 9:30 am Eastern.
Trump earns 84% support among Republicans. Biden has 77% of the Democrat vote and leads by seven among voters not affiliated with either major party.
Here’s more good news. Another poll shows Trump now leading in key swing states including Pennsylvania and Florida.
