USA Today reports:
Could the debates do for President Donald Trump what the conventions didn’t? A USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll indicates many voters think that’s possible. A greater share – 47% – predicted Trump will win the debates than the 41% who said Democratic candidate Joe Biden will.
Independents picked Trump over Biden as the likely winner of the debates by 10 percentage points: 47%-37%. While 79% of Democrats predicted their presidential nominee will come out on top in the debates, 87% of Republicans said Trump will.
