According to a new Rasmussen Reports survey, for the first time President Trump is leading Joe Biden among respondents and Trump’s approval rating has surged to tie his highest percentage this year.
Rasmussen conducts a weekly survey, and this week Trump garnered 47% of respondents’ votes while Biden obtained 46%. Additionally, Trump’s approval rating rose to 52%, as the Washington Examiner reported.
Rasmussen Reports stated, “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 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% 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.”
