Rasmussen, a highly accurate pollster who accurately predicted the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election has published a report based on a new survey and for the first time shows that Republican President Donald J Trump is leading his challenger, Democrat Joe Biden at the same time Trump has logged 52% approval rating with likely voters.
“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,” Rasmussen reported.
The Washington Examiner reported:
In a polling double tap on the Democratic presidential ticket, President Trump for the first time has edged in front of Joe Biden in his bid for reelection and he’s reached his highest approval rating for the year.
The just issued Rasmussen Reports surveys put Trump’s approval rating at 52%, after a string of 51% marks. He reached 52% two other times this year. And the pollster’s weekly race review released at noon had Trump nudging ahead of Biden, 47%-46%.”
The new national telephone and online survey finds the president with a 47% to 46% lead over Biden among Likely U.S. Voters. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, while four percent (4%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
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.
Rasmussen is so powerful the Democrat-leaning Mainstream media have been trying to discredit his polls since the 2018 mid-terms. Today’s results have caused a serious rift again, leaving Rasmussen defending himself on Twitter while single-handedly delivering accurate polling information to American voters.
He stand by his work:
Rasmussen accurately called Hillary Rodham Clinton’s margin of popular vote win in 2016 and did not oversample Democrats as many other pollsters do. Of its likely voters count, 37 were Democrats, 33% Republican, and 31% independent which is an unfavorable formula for the Democrat media.
Many analysts believe that the campaign will tighten and be won in the final days of November, just like in 2016 when Trump pulled off an Electoral College victory over Clinton, so today’s polls isn’t really a surprise, it is just a shock to the left that someone is brave enough to publish it.
The left is not pleased:
Rasmussen has had to defend himself against CNN, who doesn’t approve of the Rasmussen formula:
And he isn’t backing down, or afraid of the attacks by the left. Keep your eyes on Rasmussen!
