Poll Shows Trump’s Lead over Biden Shrinks, Voters Split on Impact

The recent poll by The New York Times/Siena College shows that former President Donald Trump’s lead against President Joe Biden is narrowing, setting the stage for a very close election. The poll reveals that while Trump’s lead has decreased to 46-45 percent among registered voters, the contrast in how voters view Trump’s presidency versus Biden’s is stark. The poll shows that a plurality of voters regard Biden’s presidency as “mostly bad for America,” while Trump’s ratings have seen improvements, particularly on the economy and maintaining law and order.

Trump’s ratings have also improved in areas such as handling the pandemic, resulting in a significant increase in registered voters who believe he left the country better off. The partisan breakdown of the poll demonstrates that those who voted for Trump in 2020 and Republicans are more likely to view Trump’s presidency as “mostly good,” while Biden voters and Democrats are more likely to view Trump’s presidency as “mostly bad.”

The poll also reveals that a plurality of Independents view Trump’s presidency as “mostly good,” while a majority of those who voted for Biden in 2020 and Democrats view Biden’s presidency as “mostly good.” However, a significant portion of Independents and those who did not vote in 2020 express negative views of Biden’s presidency.

Despite Biden’s slight edge over Trump, the poll shows that nearly equal shares of voters consider both Trump and Biden a risky choice for the country. This demonstrates that Biden’s attempts to paint Trump as a threat to democracy have not fully resonated with voters. The poll was conducted from April 7-11 and included 1,059 registered voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percent.

Overall, the poll indicates that Trump’s standing has improved with voters, particularly in key areas such as the economy and maintaining law and order. This suggests that Trump still has the potential to win over more voters in the upcoming election.
