Just in from conservative pollster Rasmussen:
Following President Trump’s announcement of a U.S. Supreme Court nominee just weeks before Election Day, Democrat Joe Biden has jumped out to an eight-point lead in Rasmussen Reports’ weekly White House Watch survey.
The latest national telephone and online survey finds Biden leading President Trump 51% to 43% among Likely U.S. Voters. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate. Another three percent (3%) are undecided.
The race had narrowed over the previous three weeks, but Biden has now cleared the 50% mark for the first time. Trump’s latest showing is his lowest since early August. Trump’s daily job approval also has fallen since his nomination Saturday of Amy Coney Barrett.
Biden 51% (+8)
A 7 point shift towards Biden since last week
