The usual caveats about national polls apply, but still:
Joe Biden has opened up a 10-point lead over President Trump in the latest Quinnipiac University poll released on Wednesday. The poll, conducted in the days after the Republican National Convention, shows Biden garnering 52 percent of the vote to Trump’s 42 percent.
Another 2 percent said they plan to vote for someone else in the presidential election, while 3 percent are undecided or declined to say who they will vote for.
The poll, Quinnipiac’s first of the 2020 presidential race surveying likely voters, suggests that Biden is heading into the critical fall campaign season with a sizable advantage over the president, who in recent weeks has honed in on a law-and-order argument for his reelection amid ongoing protests and civil unrest over racial injustice and police brutality.
