Even Trump-friendly polls are showing him with a huge deficit

Rasmussen Reports has been a Trump-friendly firm since he first arrived as a candidate. It was one of the few pollsters that predicted he would win the Presidency and their numbers are often touted by the President himself.
Today though, they published a poll with Trump losing 52%-40% to Biden with just 4% undecided.
“President Trump’s debate performance followed by his coronavirus diagnosis appear to be digging an even deeper hole for him this week,” Rasmussen¬†said.
RealClearPolitics has Biden up 9.7 points.

Rasmussen daily Trump approval rating is also at its lowest since June at -15. It had perked up to +4 on Sept 18 but that was the day Ruth Bader Ginsberg died and it’s been downhill steadily since.
Other state polls today:
  • Texas – even
  • Iowa – Biden +1
  • Nevada – Biden +6
  • Ohio – Biden +1
  • Pennsylvania – Biden +13
  • Iowa – Biden +5
  • Florida – Biden +11
Likely a big reason that US equities stormed back today were bets on a blue wave followed by a huge stimulus package.
In the 2016 election, Clinton never hit 50% and there were far more undecideds. It’s going to be very tough for Trump to turn this around.
