The Bob Woodward book virus revelations combined with the negative military comments by Donald Trump coming off his convention has keep Trump in hole behind Joe Biden….
And Trump IS running out of time with his poll numbers still stuck where they have been for months….
The reports are that there a few undecideds out there and the early voting ballot requests are at record levels…
NOT a good look for Donald who tends dig himself deeper in trouble when he does things….
A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll finds Joe Biden leading Donald Trump nationally by ten points, 49% to 39%.
The previous poll had Biden ahead by just 6 points.
“The results suggest that a week of unrelenting and unflattering revelations about Trump — from the Atlantic report on his alleged contempt for Americans wounded or killed in war (which appeared on Sept. 3) to Bob Woodward’s recordings of Trump admitting he downplayed the deadliness of COVID-19 — has damaged the president’s standing with voters.”
From new New York Times/Siena polls:
- Minnesota: Biden 50%, Trump 41%
- Nevada: Biden 46%, Trump 42%
- New Hampshire: Biden 45%, Trump 42%
- Wisconsin: Biden 48%, Trump 43%
“Overtaking Mr. Biden in some of those four states could be a significant boost to Mr. Trump’s re-election chances. He narrowly won Wisconsin in 2016 and barely lost the other three to Hillary Clinton.”
“While Mr. Trump has steadied his candidacy since his political nadir early in the summer, the Times poll suggests that, less than two months before Election Day, he has yet to achieve the kind of major political breakthrough he needs.”
“The 2020 presidential election features a pared-back pool of undecided voters after four years of a highly controversial and media-saturated presidency.,” Axiosreports.
“Entrenched views mean there’s less reason for campaigns to try to change voters’ minds than to convince those already with them to vote — and help educate them about mail-in and early-vote procedures to make sure their votes count.”
