Poll: Biden’s Lead Over Trump Drops, Margin Narrows

Support for the presumptive Democratic nominee for the 2020 Presidential election Joe Biden has dropped in a new CNN poll and although the former Vice President still holds a lead over President Donald Trump, he’s nearing the 3.7 percentage point margin of error.

The Democratic National Convention is this week and that’s where Biden will accept his nomination for the 2020 ticket.

According to the poll, 50 percent of registered voters support a Biden-Harris ticket, while 46 percent say they support a Trump-Pence ticket. It’s a difference of 4 percentage points.

Among the 72 percent of voters who reported feeling “either extremely or very enthusiastic” about voting in the November election, support for Biden fell from 53 percent to 46 percent, the poll reveals.

“It is narrower, however, among those voters who live in the states that will have the most impact on the electoral college this fall,” CNN notes.

The CNN poll, conducted by SSRS, questioned 1,108 registered voters between August 12th and the 15th.
