The ONLY place Donald Trump has been cosistanly ahed of Joe Biden in the polls has been on the economy…
THAT has been up to now….
Nationwide polling has Biden closing in Trump on how who people think would give them a better economy …
Trump’s leads in several of the polls has shrunk to 1% , which is with the margin of effort for the polls…..
This IS another example of how things seem to be shrinking around the edges for Trump in his efforts to keep his job….
Trump for months has acted as if he had a clear edge over his eventual Democratic rival on the economy, promising a financial collapse if Biden wins in November. For much of the summer, polls showed a solid lead for Trump on the economy. But there are signs that Trump’s advantage might be softening.
Senior Biden campaign officials cheered a CNN poll conducted Aug. 28-Sept. 1, that show Trump polling 49 percent on the economy and Biden 48 percent. It is a significant narrowing from CNN’s Aug. 12-15 poll that found Trump leading Biden on the economy, 53 percent to 45 percent.
Other nationwide polls show a similar closing of the gap on this key issue. A CBS-YouGov poll from Sept. 2-4 shows Trump at 45 percent on the economy and Biden at 44 percent. And a Quinnipiac poll conducted Aug. 28-31 showed the two candidates neck-and-neck on the economy, with both at 48 percent.
Few polls ask consistently about who voters think can best steer the economy, making it difficult to assess how durable Biden’s apparent gains on the issue are. Some swing state polls still show voters giving Trump a clear edge on money matters. An NBC News/Marist poll in Pennsylvania conducted Aug. 31-Sept. 7 still found Trump leading on the economy, 51 percent to Biden’s 41 percent. It was a similar story in Florida, with Trump leading 53 percent to Biden’s 40 percent on the economy.
