If we’ve learned anything from 2016, it’s to not place too much credit on the predictive accuracy of political polls. However, this one is still surprising.
President Donald Trump is 13 points behind contender Joe Biden in the June 10-16 Reuters/Ipsos poll.
The poll still shows Trump with a commanding lead over Biden when it comes who is more trusted to lead the American economy.
“Biden’s double-digit advantage is the biggest recorded by the Reuters/Ipsos poll since Democrats began their state contests to nominate their party’s challenger to Trump come November,” according to Breitbart News.
Fifty-five percent of respondents said they disapprove of Trump’s handling of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, which has claimed over 115,000 Americans, with 40 approving of his response to the crisis. According to the new set of numbers, Trump’s support among Republicans has drifted 13 percent since March.
