Biden Takes Dominant Lead in Poll as Voters Reject Trump on Virus and Race

Joseph R. Biden Jr. has taken a commanding lead over President Trump in the 2020 race, building a wide advantage among women and nonwhite voters and making deep inroads with some traditionally Republican-leaning groups that have shifted away from Mr. Trump following his ineffective response to the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new national poll of registered voters by The New York Times and Siena College.



Mr. Biden is currently ahead of Mr. Trump by 14 percentage points, garnering 50 percent of the vote compared with 36 percent for Mr. Trump. That is among the most dismal showings of Mr. Trumpís presidency, and a sign that he is the clear underdog right now in his fight for a second term.

Mr. Trump has been an unpopular president for virtually his entire time in office. He has made few efforts since his election in 2016 to broaden his support beyond the right-wing base that vaulted him into office with only 46 percent of the popular vote and a modest victory in the Electoral College.

But among a striking cross-section of voters, the distaste for Mr. Trump has deepened as his administration failed to stop a deadly disease that crippled the economy and then as he responded to a wave of racial-justice protests with angry bluster and militaristic threats. The dominant picture that emerges from the poll is of a country ready to reject a president whom a strong majority of voters regard as failing the greatest tests confronting his administration.

1. A result like this in November will be a wipeout for the GOP as well

Dems would certainly have control of the Senate and House. We can only hope they pick up some governorships and state houses as well given that redistricting will occur starting in 2021.

2. Trump is attempting to use race (BLM) like he did in 2016. Only thing is...

America has had 3.5 years to observe that BLM has not been the dangerous blacks taking over white neighborhoods as trump implied. I'm surprised trump isn't still squawking about MS-13.

Another observation is that with so many people out of work or working from home, they have a lot of time to pay attention to what's going on.
