As Trump rants and rails in the White House, threatening to replace the Supreme Court and wage war against Seattle, his chances for reelection in November appear to be fading rapidly. The president is likely to order an investigation into the pollsters as he claims to have done against CNN after their poll showed numbers similar to those released this week, with 14 points separating the two presidential candidates.
Fox News poll:
Biden's lead comes from the backing of black voters (+79 points over Trump), those under age 30 (+37), suburban areas (+22), women (+19), and voters ages 65+ (+10).

A new Fox News poll released on Wednesday not only shows Trump losing to Biden by 12 points, the demographic makeup of voters shows Trump underwater with several important voting groups, including black Americans and suburban women. Most sharply, voters were critical of Trump’s handling of race relations at a time when protests rage across the country over the disproportionate killing of black Americans by police.
‘Some 61 percent of respondents disapproved of Trump’s handling of race relations, compared to only 32 percent approving. Last month, those figures were at 56 percent and 37 percent respectively.’

Trump’s popularity has sunk to a low comparable only to his numbers during the impeachment hearings, making a Wednesday Reuters poll that shows Trump down by 13 points under Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
A Reuters/Ipsos poll showed Trump’s approval ratings sinking fast.
‘The Reuters/Ipsos poll also showed that 57% of U.S. adults disapproved of Trump’s performance in office, while just 38% approved, marking Trump’s lowest approval rating since November, when Congress was conducting its impeachment inquiry into the Republican president.’
New Quinnipiac poll:
Biden leads Trump nationally by 49-41
On handling crisis, it's 54-43
On coronavirus, it's 54-41
On race relations, it's 58-36 (!)
Trump's lead on econ is only +5https://t.co/4dEQ4Zuoar
Maybe Biden's bet on reality of majority opinion is the right one. https://t.co/NsGE240Thk

A Quinnipiac University poll released on Thursday showed a similar result with a slightly lower margin of separation. With eight points separating Trump and Biden, the numbers for younger voters was surprisingly more divided.
‘The poll, conducted by Quinnipiac University, surveyed 1,332 registered voters from June 11 to 15. Among respondents between the ages of 18 and 34, 58 percent said they would vote for Biden if the presidential election were held today, while 31 percent favored Trump.’
BREAKING: In the latest Ipsos Poll, Joe Biden now leads President Trump 48% – 35% (+13), while Trump's approval rating is just 38%. Hillary Clinton NEVER came close to this in 2015.
Just wait until Mary Trump and John Bolton's books are released! #GOPCowards
