According to a brand new CNN poll, President Donald Trump has gained a lot of ground on former Vice President Joe Biden and has narrowed the polling gap to it’s closest point in over a year.
The poll which was released on Sunday evening, shows Biden barely ahead of President Trump by just four points.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
The poll, released Sunday night, gave former Vice President Joe Biden (50) a four-point lead over President Donald Trump (46) if the election were to be held today. Additionally, Trump has apparently closed the gap in consequential swing states, where he trails Biden by just one point.
After receiving a slight wartime bump in his approvals during the early days of the coronavirus, Trump has seen the overwhelming majority of polls released this summer give Biden sizable leads both nationally and in battleground states. The president and his campaign in turn have claimed the polls showing him trailing Biden are flawed and that their own internal data shows the race significantly closer nationally and in battlegrounds.
“The pollsters got it wrong in 2016 from July through November of 2016. There were 226 national public polls. Clinton led in 213 of the 226,” said Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien. “It wasn’t just the national polls that got it wrong. The state polls got it wrong, too: 120 in state polls in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, the president led in 1 of 120.”
“Our internal polls show strong standing,” he added. “We care about our internal polls because they were right in 2016 and right now.”
The Daily Caller continues:
Trump’s positive momentum could likely be attributed to the four coronavirus aid executive orders he signed after Congress failed to reach an agreement on another stimulus package.
The action taken by the president supplemented states’ expanded unemployment insurance fund, directed the Departments of Housing and Urban Development and Health and Human Services to identify individuals struggling to make rent or mortgage payments due to the pandemic, temporarily waived interest on federally backed student loans, and temporarily deferred the payroll tax.
CNN’s latest data sampled 1,108 people from August 12-15 and has a margin of error of 3.7%.
President Trump has really stepped up his offensive game considering he is starting to campaign. This week, the President will be on the campaign trail and will be visiting Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Arizona while the Democrats hold their DNC convention.
In a clear shot at former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, President Trump will be visiting the former VP’s hometown, Scranton, Pennsylvania on Thursday while Biden will be simultaneously delivering his virtual acceptance speech from his basement.
