Monmouth poll: 5 points lead over Trump in Florida


Trump gained a substantial edge over Biden among white voters at 56–39 percent. However Trump won the same group by more than 30 points in 2016, and Biden’s support in Central Florida and areas outside Democrats’ traditional strongholds in the southern part of the state are stronger than Clinton’s in 2016.

Momentum’s voting director Patrick Murray said in a release, “In the current picture, Biden maintains a distinct democratic advantage in southern Florida, while there is notable encroachment in other parts of the state.”

A major warning sign for the president is the level of support among military voters, where Trump has a 4-point lead among veterans and those in military homes. However, among all survey respondents, a large percentage – 70 percent – said that Biden respects the military and veterans, compared to only 56 percent for Trump.

The poll was held shortly after an explosive report at The Atlantic, parts of which were later backed by other outlets, including Trump’s top military officials making serious allegations and dismissing the soldiers’ sacrifices – The White House allegations were strongly denied – as well as other comments recorded by veteran journalist Bob Woodward that were made public.

“Are the alleged negative statements about the military responsible? We cannot ask for anything because we do not have a prior tendency on this question, ”Murray said. “But it sure can’t help.”

With 53 percent of voters also denied jobs, Trump has handled the Kovid-19 epidemic, with only 44 percent saying they did a good job.

A Florida Atlantic University poll released on Tuesday also found that Biden leads 3 percent, 49 percent to 46 percent, by 5 percentage points among potential voters. The results were an error of 3.8 percentage points in the survey margin.

However, there were some promising signs for Trump. FAU poll respondents found that 72 percent of Trump voters were “extremely excited” to cast a ballot for the president, while 60 percent said they would vote for Biden. With the release of the poll, in a statement, Pollster stated that “unspecified Trump is breaking for 4: 1.”
