NEW YORK (Reuters) - Democrat Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump by 12 percentage points nationally among likely U.S. voters, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll that also showed the number of persuadable voters had shrunk compared with four years ago.
The Sept. 3-8 poll, released on Wednesday, found 52% of likely voters planned to support Biden, while 40% would back Trump. Three percent said they would vote for another candidate, and just 5% said they remained undecided with less than two months to go until the Nov. 3 presidential election.
The survey showed the number of voters who had not yet backed a major-party candidate to be less than half of what it was in 2016, and that Biden currently had the advantage in securing the national popular vote.
Even if the remaining undecided voters threw their support behind Trump, the poll showed, he would still lose the popular vote to Biden.
Trump can still win re-election, however, without winning the national popular vote. U.S. presidential elections are not decided by the national vote but rather who wins the Electoral College, a contest based on a tally of wins from state-by-state contests.
Four years ago, Democrat Hillary Clinton got almost 3 million more votes than Trump, only to see her Republican rival narrowly win the Electoral

Lets see what the next poll says......  I expect to see a drop of the 40% that say they will vote for Trump.  Especially in the 60 and older category now that they found out that Trump didn't give a rats ass if they got Covid and died or not.  Florida should turn blue, which should all but put Trump in the fossil record.

It will take years to repair the damage.

Next big thing to focus on is ensuring his enablers like Mitch and co are voted out of office.  They failed to protect this country back in December with the impeachment, and now have as much blood on their hands as Trump does.

"The poll numbers just keep getting worse for Trump."

...and better for Americans and the rest of the world.

The Five Thirty Eight polling aggregate still sits at +7.6 this morning. It's been relatively consistent for many weeks now. No matter what national poll numbers you see between now and 11/4 you still need to make your vote count. Trump can still win, just like he did last time and if it's close you can bet it go on and on in the courts.

Just Vote...... and take as many as you can to vote with you.....!

Trump needs to get steamrolled at the ballot box to make clear that America overwhelmingly rejects Trump and Trumpism.

To be honest, I want the republicans to get their party back as there were some things I agreed with them on.

How quickly some people forget. I only hope they keep forgetting until we get results similar to November 2016
