First Read: “The bad news for Trump is that he still has a 50 percent problem in the poll — where half (if not more) of the national electorate is firmly against him. And that’s a tough place for any incumbent to be.”
Consider these numbers:
- 50% of registered voters support Joe Biden on the ballot (versus 41 percent for Trump);
- 52% have a negative view of the president, including 44 percent of all voters who have a “very negative” view;
- 53% disapprove of Trump’s overall job, including 47 percent who do so strongly;
- and 58% disapprove of his handling of the coronavirus.
