Trump Sneaks Ahead Of Biden In Rasmussen Poll For First Time Since September

President Donald Trump is narrowly leading Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in Monday’s Rasmussen Reports’ daily White House Watch poll.

Trump, with 48%, snuck past Biden, who garnered 47%, in the latest poll among likely U.S. voters. Monday’s poll marks a difference from just last week, where Wednesday saw Biden ahead 49% to 46%, Rasmussen reported.

Monday marks the first time Trump has notched a lead since mid-September, according to the report. The president has 84% support with Republicans and Biden has 77% of support from Democrats. The president is also ahead by seven points with voters who don’t identify as Republican or Democrat, according to the survey.

Many other polls are seeing Biden maintain a substantial lead, although some have indicated that Trump is narrowing the playing field. (RELATED: National Polls Show That Biden Has Expanded His Lead Since The Debate)

Monday’s poll also noted an increase in black voters for Trump compared to the 2016 election, the Washington Examiner reported. Twenty-seven percent said they’d vote for Trump if the presidential election were today. The president only garnered 8% of the black vote in 2016.

The poll surveyed 1,500 likely U.S. voters and was conducted on Oct. 21-22 and 25. There is a margin of sampling error of +/- 2.5% points and Rasmussen cited a 95% level of confidence.
