Trump supporters are largely suspicious of polls and they have every reason to feel that way. The polls in 2016 were way off and many people thin k they’re off this year.
But here’s the thing. The polls always seem to be off in only one direction. They always seem to favor the Democrat.
So when a poll comes out that favors Trump, it’s more newsworthy.
This is from Rasmussen Reports:
White House Watch
Trump 48%, Biden 47%
Monday, October 26, 2020
It’s neck-and-neck, with President Trump just barely ahead in Rasmussen Reports’ first daily White House Watch survey.
The latest national telephone and online survey finds Trump edging Democrat Joe Biden 48% to 47% among Likely U.S. Voters. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, while two percent (2%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Last Wednesday, Biden held a 49% to 46% lead, but the race has been tightening since early in the month. This is the first time Trump has been ahead since mid-September.
Rasmussen Reports has been releasing White House Watch weekly on Wednesdays since the beginning of July. But starting today, White House Watch will be posted daily at 9:30 am Eastern.
Trump earns 84% support among Republicans. Biden has 77% of the Democrat vote and leads by seven among voters not affiliated with either major party.
Here’s more good news. Another poll shows Trump now leading in Pennsylvania.
From American Greatness:
Trump Takes The Lead In Pennsylvania; +3 Per New Poll
A poll conducted by InsiderAdvantage for the Center for American Greatness of 400 likely voters in Pennsylvania shows Donald Trump now leading in the state. The poll was conducted the evening of October 25 by both IVR and live cell phone interviews. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent and is weighted for age, race, gender, and political affiliation. The results:
Donald Trump: 48.4%
Joe Biden: 45.5 %
Jo Jorgensen: 3 %
Undecided: 3 %
Everything seems to be coming together for Trump at just the right time.
