Trump At 48% Approval, Biden Leading Democrats: Poll


President Donald Trump is at 48% approval, and former Vice President Joe Biden is leading among Democratic White House candidates, an NBC Survey Monkey Poll released Friday reveals.

The poll asked respondents questions about Trump’s job, the economy, the environment, health care, and immigration among other top issues in the presidential race.

Sixty-eight percent of respondents found the economy to be in good standing. When it came to political issues, 22% replied that immigration mattered most to them, with 21% trailing closely behind saying health care and the economy were most important.

The 2020 Democratic field also saw some shifts after a Wednesday poll showed California Senator Kamala Harris overtaking Former Vice President Joe Biden for the no.1 spot. The NBC poll shows Biden in the lead with 25%, while Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren are neck-and-neck for the no.2 spot at 16% each.

As the second round of presidential debates comes closer, the poll showed Biden in the lead at 25% of respondents saying they would vote for him if a Democratic primary or caucus was held today; Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren came in at 16%.

Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris came in at 14%, followed by South-Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 8%.

Thirty-two percent somewhat disapproved of how Congress is performing, and 43% strongly disapproved.
