New Poll Gives Biden 15-Point Lead Over Trump

Just hours after a CNBC-Change Research poll gave Joe Biden an eight-pound lead over President Donald Trump in Pennsylvania, a new poll widens the margin on a national level.

The Quinnipiac University poll shows the former VP leading Trump with a 15-point margin, his biggest lead since his campaign began. Biden’s 52 percent-to-37 percent lead marks a 3 percent increase from a month ago. Most Biden supporters said they think he’d do a better job dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, according to the university.

“Yes, there’s still 16 weeks until Election Day, but this is a very unpleasant real-time look at what the future could be for President Trump, says Quinnipiac polling analyst Tim Malloy.
