Days Before The Trump/Biden Election – New Rasmussen Poll Gives President Trump His First Lead In Months

Days Before The Trump/Biden Election – New Rasmussen Poll Gives President Trump His First Lead In Months

Next week, Americans will decide who will sit in the Oval Office come January. For a long time, the polls declared Sleepy Joe Biden was a shoo-in. Even Rasmussen, an outlet trusted by some conservatives, claimed Trump was behind Joe—at one time as far back as 12 points.

But even left-wing polls seem to be turning around. When we look at the country at large, something is definitely happening. And now, Rasmussen has released a new poll that should force Biden out of hiding:

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.

The latest Rasmussen poll has Trump with just a slightest of leads. That’s a 13 point swing since Rasmussen reported a 12-point lead for Biden only a few weeks ago. This is consistent with many other polls, that see Trump leading in swing states by a small margin. National polls are questionable, at best, given this is a state-by-state, electoral election. And we’ve gone over (and over) how polls from the mainstream media can be easily skewed to benefit Democrats.

(And we know that nearly 61% of Americans don’t like to admit their political views.)

With that in mind, this poll should be staggering. The mainstream media continues to refuse that Trump has been a remarkably successful president. They pretend he is a failure, hated by Americans and that Joe Biden is our great white salvation. Meanwhile, they cover up the mountain of scandals, gaffes, and outright odd behavior by Sleepy Joe. So, for any mainstream poll to give Trump any kind of lead suggests he is way ahead of Biden.

We’ve seen for months Joe hide in his basement, refusing to do many events. He peeped out for a little bit at the end of the Summer, but with just days before the election, he’s not campaigning Monday in swing states. I guess he doesn’t want to do damage control over his promise to “transition” from the oil industry. He probably just expects the media to cover for him.

Meanwhile, Trump is traveling across the country to packed out venues and airfields, hosting “peaceful protests” with thousands in attendance. Reminds us a lot of another presidential race, doesn’t it? On top of that, we are seeing rallies and parades for Trump in places that shouldn’t have a single Trump supporter, like Miami and Beverly Hills.

Maybe Joe should, you know, come out of hiding?

Key Takeaways:

  •       Rasmussen reveals Trump is leading Biden in their latest poll.
  •       Biden has been hiding for days since his debate performance.
  •       Trump is hosting rallies across the country.

BREAKING: President Donald Trump TAKES LEAD Over Joe Biden in Rasmussen Daily ‘White House Watch’ — 4 Point Swing in ONE WEEK

Reported By Jim Hoft | Published October 26, 2020 at 9:39am

President Trump took the lead today over Democrat Joe Biden in the Rasmussen daily “White House Watch” poll. Trump was down by three points last week. That’s a four point swing in a week!

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.

President Trump also holds a 52% favorability rating in Monday’s Rasmussen reporting.

Days After The Final Debate, A Flood Of New 2020 Polls Show The Tide May Be Turning For President Trump

Days After The Final Debate, A Flood Of New 2020 Polls Show The Tide May Be Turning For President Trump

The final presidential debate gave Trump the opportunity to highlight his track record in office—compared to Biden’s short list of accomplishments as Vice President. And now, just days before election day, it looks like the polls are starting to move significantly. For months they showed Biden with a significant lead nationally and in key battleground states. But a flood of new polls show something has definitely changed across the board, from swing states to nationwide. From Rasmussen:

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey of Likely Voters in Florida finds Trump beating Biden 49% to 46%.

Factor in those who haven’t made up their minds yet but are leaning toward one candidate or the other, and Trump gains another point, besting Biden 50% to 46%.

Florida is a must-win state for Trump. He won it narrowly in 2016, and polls showed him trailing Biden. But Donald seems to be peaking at just the right time. But to get to 270, Donald also needs to pick up at least one of the big three blue swing states: Pennsylvania, Michigan or Wisconsin. And while he’s running close in all of them, it looks like he could be surging ahead in one of them.

From Zia Poll, via Twitter:


That’s a great poll for Trump. He won Michigan by a much closer margin last time, and other polls are still showing a Biden lead there, so Trump has to focus on picking up these Midwest states. His economic arguments to open up and support the oil and racking industries should help his cause.

But there’s a movement beyond the swing states—it looks like there is a major move nationally that looks quite different from 2016. From Gallup, via Twitter:


A 6-point swing is a big deal for Republicans across the board. This will of course help Trump, but could also help key Senate races and take away at least a chunk of Pelosi’s majority in the House. It could be an indication that America has had enough of the political games Pelosi has been playing during a serious crisis.

And lastly, there’s considerably good news for President Trump. From Rasmussen:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday… shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove.

This is the second day in a row Trump is over 50% approval. He was at 52% yesterday, near a historic high. That bodes well for his electoral chances. It seems to match up with the recent poll showing 56% of Americans are better off since Trump took office.

And it is better than what Obama had at this point in his term. And keep in mind, Mitt Romney was polling strongly against Obama but it became apparent early on election night that his position was not nearly as strong as the polls claimed.

We may be starting to see a repeat of 2012, where the power of the incumbency and general polling being too generous for the challenger made the incumbent look vulnerable. But in the end, like Trafalgar pollster and others are predicting, Trump may be in a much stronger position than many think.

Do you think Trump will beat Biden in 2020?
