Courthouse News reports:
With former Vice President Joe Biden poised to be the Democratic presidential nominee after Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race Wednesday, new polling data puts Biden atop the only major rival left in the presidential race – President Donald Trump. A national CNN poll released Thursday night gives Biden a commanding 11-point lead over Trump, with 53% support of registered voters compared to Trump’s 42%.
The coronavirus outbreak has at least partially contributed to Biden’s lead over Trump, with more voters saying they trust the former vice president to guide them through this troubled time. Biden leads Trump in voter trust on a host of critical issues, such as the ability to manage the virus outbreak (52% to 43%), the issue of America’s health care (57% to 39%) and in offering meaningful help to the middle class (57% to 38%).
