Donald Trump in ‘near draw’ with Joe Biden, new poll finds | United States news

Donald Trump has gained ground on his likely challenger in the November presidential election and is in “near tie” with Joe Biden, according to a new poll released Sunday.

The Washington Post-ABC News poll raised the former vice president from 49% to 47% among registered voters. In February, the same poll left the President of the United States seven points behind.

In the midst of the coronavirus crisis, respondents favored Trump over the economy and Biden over health care.

Referring to the poll, the Post said it “only tests national sentiment, which would translate into popular vote, not state-by-state competition for a majority of the constituency.”

In 2016, Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the constituency despite losing the popular vote with nearly 3 million votes.

In key college swing states, the 2020 race is tight. For example, according to the average of the realclearpolitics.com survey, Wisconsin is in balance and Trump is ahead of 1.3% in Florida, while Biden leads by about four points in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

The general election average for the same site takes Biden almost six points ahead.

Critics of the former vice president have attacked his response to the coronavirus outbreak.

“I’m busy,” Biden told reporters in a recent video call from his home in Delaware. “I wish I was still in the Senate, you know, being able to influence some things. But they are where they are. “

And Trump is the man in the White House. Friday, the survey guru Nate Silver he said on Twitter: “Almost nothing of what Joe Biden is doing in the coming weeks will matter very much for November. And almost everything Donald Trump is doing will matter. “

On Saturday, Trump visited Norfolk, Virginia, for the departure of a hospital ship bound for New York harbor. It also sparked an extraordinary confrontation with the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, suggesting a sort of forced quarantine for New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

An incredulous Cuomo said that such a quarantine order would amount to a “federal declaration of war”. Trump backed away.

Biden has not yet achieved the democratic nomination for 2020, but is far ahead of the Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in counting delegates. Amid widespread public blockades as the coronavirus spreads, many primaries have been delayed, leaving the race in limbo.

The post-ABC poll pushed Biden up 55% -39% compared to Sanders among Democrats and democratically independent people. The latest survey of this type brought Sanders to a great position.
