CNN poll: Biden lead over Trump rises to 14 points

A new national poll shows that President Trump‘s approval rating is dropping and that he trails Democratic challenger Joe Biden by double digits if November’s presidential election were held today.

According to a CNN survey which was released on Monday, President Trump’s approval rating stands at 38 percent, a dive of 7 percentage points from CNN’s previous poll, which was conducted in early May. And disapproval rate of Trump  jumped from 51 percent month ago to 57 percent now.

And the poll shows the former vice president and democratic presidential nominee topping the GOP incumbent in the White House by 14 points — 55 to 41 percent. That’s nearly triple the 5-point margin – 51-46 percent – Biden led by a month ago in CNN polling.

President Trump doesn’t like the survey and once again crticized CNN by adding “CNN Polls are as Fake as their Reporting.”

The CNN poll was conducted Tuesday through Friday – which means it questioned voters nearly entirely before Friday’s stunning unemployment report, which indicated 2.5 million jobs were created last month and that the nation’s jobless level had dropped. The numbers were boosted by states reopening their economies after being mostly shut in late March and April in order to limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Forty-two percent of people questioned in the poll say that race relations are extremely important to their vote in November, slightly higher than the 40 percent who said the economy, 39 percent who said health care, and 31 percent who said the coronavirus outbreak.

By a more than two-to-one margin – 63-31 percent – voters say they think Biden would better handle race relations than the president.

The CNN poll was conducted by SSRS June 2-5, with 1,259 people nationwide questioned by live telephone operators. The survey’s overall sampling error is plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
