Joe Biden’s lead in polls shrinks ahead of the party conference
Before the party conference at which Joe Biden is to be elected as a presidential candidate, he is losing approval. Donald Trump goes on an election campaign tour.
Ahead of the party congress at which the US Democrats officially elect Joe Biden as their presidential candidate, his vote has fallen, according to a poll. Sources report that50 percent of the voters surveyed said they wanted to support Biden and Kamala Harris. 46 percent were in favour of Trump and his Vice Mike Pence. For comparison: At the beginning of June, 55 percent of the survey stated that they support Biden. Trump was only 41 percent.
The poll came after Biden announced last Tuesday that he had chosen Senator Kamala Harris as a running mate. The polling institute SSRS polled 1,108 voters between August 12 and 15. In 15 so-called swing states, in which the electoral majorities change, again and again, the survey sees Biden and Trump on par (49 to 48 percent). The website FiveThirtyEight, which evaluates numerous surveys and averages them, currently sees Biden with 51 percent of the votes nationwide, Trump with 43 percent. Because of the complicated electoral system, national polls are of limited value anyway.
In a poll published on Sunday by the broadcaster NBC News and the Wall Street Journal, 58 percent of those polled who want to vote for Biden said they wanted to do so out of disapproval of Trump. November 3rd will be the date of elections.
