Latest National Poll Should Have Joe Biden Sweating Bullets

Democrats and their allies in the media have been trying to claim for months that Democratic candidate Joe Biden is going to win the election.
The polls have never been friendly to President Donald Trump, but we all remember how he won big in 2016 over Hillary Clinton.
However, one of the only polls to accurately predict Trump could win in 2016 is showing the president will defeat Biden in November.
According to a Rasmussen Reports survey, Trump has taken his first national lead against Biden.
The president leads nationally with 47 percent to Biden’s 46 percent.
“While statistically insignificant, it’s the first time Trump has been ahead,” the pollster said.
Four percent of those polled described themselves as undecided, and 3 percent of respondents said they preferred another candidate.
Rasmussen noted that in last week’s survey, Biden held a 2-point lead nationally among likely voters, but Trump had crossed the 45 percent threshold for the first time.
Per Rasmussen’s White House Watch, which began weekly tracking in July, the president is trending up.
The pollster also found Wednesday that Trump is enjoying a 52 percent approval rating.
This isn't the only great poll for Trump that has been released recently.
A brand new poll reveals that Trump is winning that battle over Democratic candidate Joe Biden in Florida with Latino voters.
This is so significant because Latinos voted overwhelmingly for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election -- and Trump still won the swing state.
According to an NBC News/Marist poll of 766 likely voters conducted between Aug. 31 and Sept. 6, Trump and Biden are tied with 48 percent support in the state, but Trump has 50 percent support among Latinos compared to 46 percent support for Biden.
In 2016, Clinton won 62 percent of the Latino vote in Florida compared to Trump’s 35 percent.
So even if Trump and Biden split the Latino vote evenly, that would be catastrophic for the former vice president.
Latinos are not the only group where Trump is seeing rising support.
A Hill-Harris X poll of registered voters conducted late last month revealed that 24 percent of black respondents approve of Trump’s job performance, which represents a 9 percentage point spike from earlier in the month.
But if Trump and the Republicans continue to do outreach toward Latinos and other minority groups, he may be able to clinch a second term.
Other recent polls from North Carolina, Michigan, and Wisconsin should have Democrats worried.
Several AARP polls also found that in the race for eight hotly contested Senate seats, GOP incumbents are surging ahead of Democrat challengers.
