Trump cuts Biden's lead nationally - poll

United States President Donald Trump has reduced the presidential race lead that Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden had enjoyed over the summer, according to a poll published by Monmouth University on Monday.

The former vice president would be the preferred candidate of 50% of the registered voters participating in the survey, while Trump would garner support from 44% of them. "Half the national electorate has been dead set against reelecting the president all along. But that does not mean they have completely gotten behind the challenger, particularly in the most competitive areas of the country," Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute, commented.

The institute's August poll had shown that Biden held a 10 percentage point lead over the incumbent head of state.
