Joe Biden Has Led To Donald Trump In All Surveys This National Month

Published

Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden has led his Republican opponent Donald Trump in every national poll that has been released this month, according to data maintained by two polling aggregators.

In polling data maintained by RealClearPolitics, Trump trailed behind Biden in over 30 nationwide general election presidential polls released in October. The data indicates that support for Biden’s campaign this year peaked around October 11, when the former vice president’s national polling average placed him 10.3 percentage points ahead of the Republican. In the days since, Trump has managed to lessen the gap and is now trailing Biden by an average of 7.9 percent nationally.

Polling data maintained by FiveThirtyEight paints a similar picture of the race. Biden led Trump in every single nationwide poll out of the dozens conducted among likely voters, registered voters and American adults this month, according to an aggregation maintained by the website.

Democrats have issued similar remarks in a bid to encourage greater voter turnout. In a recent memo, Biden campaign manager Jennifer O’Malley urged supporters to “campaign like we’re trailing” and remember that “polling can be wrong.”

In his Biden campaign rally debut, former President Barack Obama revealed that he isn’t following polls.

“We cannot leave any doubt in this election,” Obama said at the Pennsylvania event. “We can’t be complacent. I don’t care about the polls. There were a whole bunch of polls last time [that] didn’t work out.”

Biden’s campaign has spent over $582 million on television advertisements since entering the race in April 2019, according to the nonpartisan firm Advertising Analytics. The amount represents the largest sum any presidential candidate has spent on TV and digital advertising in U.S. history. By comparison, Trump’s campaign spent $342 million over the past two years.

Newsweek reached out to Biden and Trump’s campaigns for comment.
