3 Min ReadNEW YORK (Reuters) - Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden has quietly expanded his lead over President Donald Trump among registered voters, even as the rapidly spreading coronavirus has all but sidelined the former vice president’s campaign, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Tuesday.

The poll conducted on Monday and Tuesday of more than 1,100 American adults found that 46% of registered voters said they would support Biden if he were running against Trump in the Nov. 3 election, while 40% said they would vote for Trump.That advantage of 6 percentage points was up from a 1-point lead for Biden recorded in a similar poll that ran from March 6 to 9.
The result suggested that Biden had not been hurt politically from his lack of visibility while the Republican president is at the center of a government response to a pandemic that has infected more than 184,000 people in the United States and killed more than 3,700 people.
Biden, who does not currently hold office, has been struggling to stay in the public eye as the coronavirus forced millions of Americans inside their homes. While Trump has held daily televised briefings about the virus, Biden has had to shut down fundraisers and other campaign events, and election officials in many states have postponed their nominating contests.
Still, the poll found that the number of people who approve of Trump in general, and also those who like the way he has handled the U.S. coronavirus response, had changed very little over the past few weeks. About 44% said they approved of Trump’s overall performance and 48% said they liked the way he had responded to the coronavirus outbreak.
That compared with a 70% approval rating among respondents for their state governors’ handling of the pandemic.Trump initially underplayed the severity of the coronavirus,sparred with governors over their requests for medical supplies and floated the idea of reopening the economy against the advice of public health officials. But he shifted course to back extending the shutdown measures to slow the spread of the virus.
The poll showed that the coronavirus had rattled the entire country, with 89% saying they were “very” or “somewhat” concerned by the respiratory disease.Twenty-six percent of adults in the United States said they had lost their jobs or been furloughed as stores closed and employers were forced to cut back on staffing because of guidance from health officials for people to stay at home. That was up 3 percentage points from a similar poll that ran last week.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online, in English, throughout the United States. It gathered responses from 1,114 adults and had a credibility interval, a measure of precision, of about 3 percentage points.Reporting by Chris Kahn; Editing by Soyoung Kim and Peter CooneyRead more: Reuters Top News »

Nuts. Quietly expired? FakeNews with flavor of wishful thinking. Mr. Reuter would be shocked in his tomb. Is this the same polling group that said HRC was going to win by a landslide in 2016? Biden beats Trump by an average of 6.5 pts. That is waaay too big a gap to fill in politics. TeamJoe RidinwithBiden
Lol, doctor polls much? ☝🏻FAKE NEWS☝🏻 Gaslighting. Joe Biden has dementia. Should he be the nominee, Trump will have a landslide victory. Best thing for Biden is to keep him out of the spotlight, and speaking off script. Sellout Hillary was suppose to win by a landslide that was Never seen before. Poll➡️🤣🤣🤣🤣
These numbers are every bit as reliable as 'official Chinese Wuhan Virus numbers.' FakeNews... What you are also going to see from Reuters, MSNBC, and CNN is the same kind of polling that will bring Biden to 89% of winning 202o just like they did for Hillary... The guys is suffering from dementia he can not go through a single speech without mumbling
Right Hillary also expanded lead and in fact won the election before Nov. 3, 2016 No doubt Chinese virus came from Wuhan Lab. Entire world shut down. We need the truth. Lab created virus. Wow! Talk about fake news this is it! In whose mind? Did u include Bernie? A snail could lead over Trump in this Coronaviris colossal fail
Just fold already. FakeNews Lol if you say so Joe has got to take an undercover approach, working quietly until the pandemic panic subsides, and then becoming gradually more assertive. Trump got a blip of approval, but it seems to be from uneducated non-voters. He's not benefiting from the pandemic. Oh here we go again. 🙄
Joe Biden is hiding because he is a Dementia Patient---People are supporting someone who will be 25th amendment out before he takes office......Deep State Candidate---Manchurian candidate --- Trojan horse candidate Rothschild promoting Biden because he’s for sale to globalists especially Biden pathetic trade deals that ship Americans jobs out
He’s always done better when not speaking. I bet he couldn't finish the alphabet without a prompter. Good luck creepy Joe! JoeBiden rEUTERS OR bABYLON bEE?
