A potential presidential candidate, former US vice president Joe Biden, is ahead of incumbent head of state Donald Trump in popularity by eight percentage points. But in a month, the gap between politicians has narrowed, according to the results of a public opinion poll, commissioned by Fox News.
According to the study, 49% of respondents are ready to vote for Biden in the upcoming presidential elections in November, and 41% are for Trump. The remaining survey participants have not yet decided.
Moreover, according to a similar study conducted in June, the gap was 12 percentage points in favor of Biden (50% and 38%, respectively).
On the eve of the results of another public opinion poll, it was commissioned by ABC and The Washington Post. According to the results of this study, Biden is ahead of Trump by 10 percentage points (54% and 44%).
Joe Biden has secured enough support to be a candidate for the upcoming Democratic convention on November 3. The congress is expected to be held August 17-20 in Milwaukee (Wisconsin), writes TASS.
Meanwhile, Trump said he was not ready to knowingly accept any outcome of the election. He once again expressed confidence that Biden, after becoming president, “will destroy the country.” “I would say that he is not competent to be president,” Trump said. He previously accused Biden of plagiarism.
