Let us know your thoughts on the primaries in the comments!
Good afternoon. Here are the latest news and updates that our team at Future Majority is tracking.
Biden continues to lead in the Democratic primary nomination, and narrowly beats Trump head-to-head:
A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that former Vice President Joe Biden holds a substantial lead over Senator Bernie Sanders, 55% to 39%.
In the same poll, Biden leads President Trump by 2 points in a head-to-head heat:
- Biden: 49%, Trump: 47%
And in a new Fox News poll, Biden has an ever greater lead over Trump, by a nearly double-digit margin:
- Biden: 49%, Trump: 40%
The poll also asked how voters view the two likely general election contenders on a set of issues. Here’s how those shook out:
- On the economy, Trump leads Biden, 52% to 42%
- On healthcare, Biden leads Trump 51% to 41%
- With respect to handling the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump narrowly leads Biden, 47% to 43%
Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. is back under water:
A new Navigator poll out late last week shows Trump’s handling of the pandemic dropped 3 points from their previous poll taken from March 20-23, when several polls showed a bump in Trump’s approval rating. He is now at:
- Approve: 47%
- Disapprove: 50%
A poll from The Hill/HarrisX also showed a similar drop. Early last week, his handling of the crisis was approved by a majority of registered voters. In a poll out Friday, his approval dropped 6 points:
- Approve: 50%
- Disapprove: 50%
New York became the latest state to delay its primary. Here’s a look at where the rest of the calendar stands:
