Everyone has wondered what Trump’s COVID condition would do to the 2020 race.
Already, there are signs the president is recovering. But pundits have spent the last 3 years spewing their opinions on what this all “means.”
Would Americans rally around the president after this trying time? Or will the blame him for his affliction and pile on?
Well, a new poll has come out since his diagnosis—and it has revealed a startling shift:
On Saturday, the day after it was revealed that President Trump had contracted the coronavirus, a new poll from John Zogby Strategies was taken, and it showed something startling: former Vice President Joe Biden was leading President Trump by only two points, 49%-47%. Zogby’s July 8 poll found Biden leading Trump by seven points, 49% to 42%, while their August 29th poll found Biden leading by six points (48% to 42%).
The new Zogby poll, when taken with his recent polls, reveals that Biden is rapidly losing ground.
The July poll had Biden leading by 7, August had him at six. Now, after Trump announced he was positive for COVID—Biden only has a lead by 2 points.
We all know the inherent problems with polling (especially polls concerning Trump). But while one poll might not tell you much—watching how poll results move from month to month is actually very revealing.
Even if these polls oversampled Democrats (or ignored first-time voters, etc.), the fact that Biden is losing his lead is big.
With a possible bias factored in, pollsters are seeing movement for Trump in a big way.
This is even more telling, when you see how Trump jumped in the latest poll. He is only 2 points off from Biden—that is a razor-thin margin.
Far too close to call by anyone.
And that’s after the first debate and COVID news.
Since Trump announced he tested positive for COVID—people from all walks of life expressed sympathy and support.
His video updates have been viewed by tens of millions of Americans.
A large crowd of supporters showed up outside the hospital, praying for his recovery and showing him love.
The president himself, on the mend, even drove by to greet them.
If this poll trend continues, we might see the unthinkable: a mainstream media poll with Trump in the lead!
- A new Zogby poll reveals Trump is only off by 2 points.
- Their polls have shown Biden losing ground rapidly over the last few months.
- The latest poll came out after Trump revealed he tested positive for COVID.
