Many of the polls surveyed respondents after the death of George Floyd, which set off a nationwide protest movement against police brutality and systemic racism.

With the 2020 election now less than five months away, polls show Joe Biden pulling further ahead of President, even as the apparent Democratic nominee's campaign remains hampered by the coronavirus. While Biden has outpaced Trump in most national polls since launching his White House bid in April 2019, the former vice president's lead has widened significantly since last month,RCP's average currently gives Biden a 7.8 percentage point lead over Trump – a significant jump from the 5.3-point edge Biden held in

Hah, Who elects when the election is up for treason. May i be considered in this election. The River Queen New Zealand

Just like Hillary Clinton's was....

Dream on

Hahahahaha ha ... just like Hillary’s .... hahahahaha hahahahaha haha

Fake News

It's like 2016 Hillary leads in the polls lost the election! Go ahead lead the polls. 'I'm Biden and I'm running for Senator' 2020 Trump wins presidential election again!!!!!!

What has this man done to deserve the presidency? Apparently many want to be ruled by the Obama’s again

Putting aside all of Trump’s inexcusable conduct, how could any president get re-elected with the current unemployment numbers?

Sure just like the lead HRC had in 2016. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Remember the 2016 polls Not very accurate were they?

Fake news

Lol Trump2020

Seriously? Why he has market though?

That’s why the Bernie or Busters are now going to introduce defunding police as the political self-destruction topic of this cycle.

If Biden wins, the market won’t like it. Although it’s early, I see that a lot of very young people are willing to vote. However, they don’t do research, they just follow what their friends say. What do their friends say? “Trump sucks”. That’s my worry for Trump.

Suprise, suprise

As they are hiding him. DNC would love to skip the debates and head right into november.

Never by true Christians. Democrats vote for baby killer. Every life is precious, adoption is the answer. Trump2020

Your own Poll says they are basically tied in all the Battleground States. Nationally Biden ahead but National vote doesn’t win it as everyone learned in 2016.

Don't worry, we have five months to go. Voters' memory span is about 2 weeks.

RomainDionLR Clinton aussi était en tête 😂

From CNBC. Don’t believe it.

Should we trust polls? Didn't the polls have Hillary Clinton winning the election?...

Let see in November🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲

Just watch now the batshit crazy hashtags are gonna get worse

Battle of the dinosaurs

fakenews. Just like HRC was leading the entire time.

It’s like a mentally handicapped Biden could actually be elected? Not legally for sure.

Maybe someone should ask Hillary how that worked for her...

Aw Geez. Deja. Wasn’t that the polling claim with Hilary in 2016. you guys have lost your compass. Is JoeBiden even remotely electable?! come on now

Yes, lead poisoning on Biden is much higher than on Trump. Within the brain, lead-induced damage in the prefrontal cerebral cortex, hippocampus, and cerebellum can lead to a variety of neurological disorders, such as brain damage, mental retardation, Alzheimer, Parkinson

Very early. Nothing is guaranteed. Wasn’t Hillary leading against Trump in most of the polls last time...we all know how that ended. cnbc

Depends delivery steady for Biden



Sure, just like Hillary’s lead was 10 points 4 years ago......🤡🤡🤡

Let’s not get excited. Hilary also has big leads in the “polls”. Let’s get out and vote this time

Include republicans in your poll and provide the real results


Well that’s not a surprise he didn’t lead any polls before he was voted into office the fake polls mean nothing

1: Sounds just like the 2016 polls 2: Biden gains in popularity the longer he is locked in his basement. At some point, he will have to come out and be seen and listened to, that's when his electibility problems grow. Should'a been Pete B - he was a winner!

Tell Putin he can't divide and conquer American.

Stop the fake news CNBC

Don’t count chickens FFS!

Polls showed Hillary winning.

You will be surprised again . Joe don’t know where is is half the time. Been in office for 50 years and didn’t fix anything except enriched himself and sold jobs to China. So if you want yiour jobs gone higher taxes and bad health care low growth and food stamps vote for joe!

Murtaugh nailed it. 'Key States'. Trump lost the popular vote last time - it's all about battleground states. imho, very few are going to change their vote - it's about 'get out the vote & where....

what a fucked up choice.

Heard the same shit during the last election. Oh man, look how that one turned out - Hillary certainly had a HUGE lead, based on 'polling', of course. lel.

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣you polled rioters!!! Sleepy cripy JoeBiden is a disaster!! CNBC fake news

It means unrest, organised by Trump supporters (maybe by Putin), will continue to rise.

Fake polls!

If you believe this poll, bid big money on Joe Biden. Will you?

Wasn't it the same script we heard for months before Nov 2016? The only difference is Joe in place of Hillary.

Biden tried to hijack George Floyd’s protest to advance his political career to make up for his racist comments! Does he have no shame? Maybe he can donate the campaign contributions he got from it to George Floyd’s Family!

Meeting people everyday that hate the Dnc.

Not buying it.

Personally think it is sad these are our nations best options.

So did the 'bitch of Benghazi'!

Fake news

Lies trumps gonna win guys

Help Joe get the message out. DONATE! Make it monthly thru Nov if you can. And don't forget the DCCC and DSCC. We have a chance to win the Senate and keep the house, to cleanse our government.

Who are these people taking the polls? Just reading these comments I can see it wont be some sort of landslide by Biden. Every media tweet making the same claims has the same pro Trump comments. Average Joe's vote counts just as much as LeBrons. Just saying...


Very early. Take nothing for granted. Prepare to VOTE, despite the obstacles, yes, obstacles.


The only poll that matters is the one 5 months from now. Things change all the time. Hope Biden can maintain the lead.


Haha, that's probably because they are out polling all the protestors.

Let’s kick out this assholl from the WhiteHouse!!!!!!!

November is months away. The Biden campaign needs to be ready for a great deal of dirty politics from the other side. Most of America stands for decency and common sense which is why trump should loose. The only thing trump can do now is cheat manipulate the headlines or both.

So CNBC wants readers to believe that voters will choose a political hack in a state of dementia for president. Voters are smarter than that..

I heard Hillary won the last election.

No shit

Hillary allegedly had an 18 point lead in the poll of polls in August of 2016, even before the vagina comments. So, polls are 💩

medit8now We should settle for no less than double digits for Biden and SINGLE for T rump.. We can't afford to take any chances..

Dont worry trump will come with even greater majority this time😂😂

CNBC you blow because you are biased in your reporting!!

Lets try it here. If elections were tomorrow, who would you vote for?

Fake money. Fake prices. Fake polls. Fake democracy.

Haha enjoy your last months in white house 😂😂 POTUS realDonaldTrump

4 more years

I doubt it will stay that way if these polls are even accurate. Biden is a weak opponent and Trump's clan seems very strong. I've seen this happen before so I ain't about to consider anything until the fat lady sings.

Fake news. More media lies

Good. Looking forward to that translating to removing as much of the GOP from office as possible. I don't care about partisan trash talk, I just want national governance that's functional so we can actually accomplish something.

Remember, Hillary blew a 28-3 lead. Biden will probably do that too.

A Monmouth University poll of 742 registered voters!


Does it look like this?

Were those the same polls that had Hillary Clinton a sure bet to be President?

LOL! If You are a democrat and cant see where your party is right now you need to open your eyes!!

Yeah i bet it is jusr like when Hillary had 99% chance to win

Guess his new campaign messaging is working.

Fakenews. Fool me once....

Biden winning less than 50 States would be upsetting.

Interesting times we live in

Plans being discussed for Joe Biden to attend George Floyd's funeralPlans are being discussed for former Vice President Joe Biden to attend the funeral services for George Floyd next Tuesday in Houston, but the arrangements have not been finalized, according to a source I would ask the family not to politicise the funeral by having Biden attend. The indignation of how he died is the only thing we're all unified about right now. Don't throw that away... Nothing like politicizing a tragedy. Total BS, he didn't know George Floyd. Can't the poor family heal? They think this will help? I would say keep all politicians away. Time to pander, sleepy Joe
