Trump Takes First Lead of the Year! President Trump has now edged to a one-point lead over Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the latest Rasmussen Reports’ weekly White House Watch survey. While statistically insignificant, it’s the first time Trump has been ahead.
The new national telephone and online survey find the president with a 47-46 percent lead over Biden among Likely U.S. Voters. Three percent prefer some other candidate, while four percent remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The race has narrowed over the past two weeks. Biden had a two-point lead last week, but that survey also marked the first time Trump had edged above 45 percent over the past two-and-a-half months. Prior to this week, Biden has bested Trump in every weekly survey since White House Watch began at the beginning of July.
The new survey finds Trump with 80% support among Republicans and a nine-point lead among voters not affiliated with either major party. Biden has 80 percent of the Democrat vote.
Trump is showing surprising strength among minority voters, suggesting perhaps that he is attracting Black and Hispanic support in record numbers.
Many of our JFRS radio show analysts, like Alfredo Ortiz of the Job Creators Network and Julio Gonzalez of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly are forecasting a record-breaking Hispanic vote for Trump in 2020, at 41 and 60 percent respectively.
In addition to this surprising revelation, the president’s job approval numbers among young African American voters aged 18-29 is soaring — with 54 percent approved.
In another shocker, one poll has Trump garnering 45 percent of the gay male vote, a significant turnaround from 2016, and a game-changer on election day (or week or month).
Bottom Line: The Democrat plantation coalition is cracking up as we speak.
