“The poll shows Biden ahead of Trump by 11 points among registered voters, 51 percent to 40 percent, which is well outside the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points,” the poll found.
Last month, the same poll showed Biden with a 7-point lead, although other national polls in mainstream media have consistently shown Biden with a double-digit lead in recent weeks.
The poll also revealed a huge shift in overall anxiety among the US electorate, with 72 percent saying the country is headed on the wrong track, a 16 percent surge since March, the month when the coronavirus pandemic began hitting the nation with full force.
However, the poll also showed Biden’s overall popularity slipping, with 46 percent giving a negative assessment of the former vice president, an eight-point jump from 38 percent last month. Biden’s positivity rating dropped from 37 percent to 34 percent.
Trump’s scored ratings of 39 percent positive, 54 percent negative, according to the poll.
