Trump loses ground for Biden amid chaotic week

As protesters gather daily near the White House and the coronovirus epidemic continues, the American public is angry at President Donald Trump. A new CNN poll by SSRS found that Trump's approval rating fell 7 points in the past month as the president fell behind alleged Democratic nominee Joe Biden, now backed by his highest CNN poll.

The survey also found that a growing majority of Americans feel that racism is a major problem in the country today and that the criminal justice system in the United States is against blacks. More than 10 of 8 also say that peaceful protests across the country are justified after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers. Americans now regard race relations as an economy and health care as important as campaign issues, according to the survey.

Overall, 38% of the way Trump has handled the presidency was approved at the time, while 57% disapproved. This is their worst approval rating since January 2019 and roughly Jimmy Carter and George H.W. W. Is equal to the approval rating of. At this point Bush in his reunion years. Both lost the presidency after one term.

In the White House race among registered voters, Trump is 14 points behind Biden, who on Saturday officially gained enough delegates to win the Democratic nomination in CNN's representative estimate. 41% who say they have the lowest endorsement on CNN's followers as of April 2019 on this question, and Biden's 55% support is their highest rating.

The result comes in the middle of a week in which Trump's reaction to protests outside the White House led to some Republicans being condemned and rebuked by former Secretary of Defense James Mattis, who was under the presidency.

The poll found that the public has widely disapproved of Trump's handling of race relations (63% disapproval), and 65% say the president's response to recent protests has been more damaging than supportive.

A large number of Americans say that peaceful protests around the country after the police violence against African-Americans are justified (84% say so), and a quarter (27%) of violent protests in response to African Americans Police are warned to harm or kill. Both figures are higher when similar protests escalated in the fall of 2016. Then, 67% justified peaceful protests, while 14% felt violent protests.

There is not much racial or partisan difference in whether peaceful protest is justified, but the gap is much larger than violent protest. Among Democrats, 42% consider violent protest to be justified in response to police violence against African Americans, while only 9% of Republicans agree. Among blacks, 39% say violent protest is justified, compared to 23% among whites.

Two-thirds of Americans today consider racism a major problem in America, compared to 49% who said it in a 2015 CNN / Kaiser Family Foundation poll. The increase in this participation is more pronounced among blacks (88% call it a major problem compared to 66% in 2015), but there is a large increase among Latino (64% to 79%) and whites (43% Up to 60%) too.

It also stated that the US criminal justice system favors whites over blacks: 67% feel this way, up from 52% in the fall of 2016.

Nearly a quarter of Americans (25%), including most blacks (54%), say they have fear for life at some point because of their race or ethnicity. Among black men, 62% say they have feared for their lives due to race at some point, and 63% of black Americans of any gender under 45 say.

His presidential vote, with 42% of calling race ties extremely important for this decline, is now on par with major campaign issues with the economy and healthcare. The issue has special significance for Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents, with 60% of Republicans and only 18% of Republicans considering it an extremely important issue. Most black voters also consider it extremely important, 61%, which is more than 34%, who said the same thing in June 2015.

Voters give Trump a nearly two-in-one advantage over managing race relations: 63% say they think Biden would do a better job on the issue, with only 31% choosing Trump. Among black voters, Biden is preferred: 91% say he would do a better job on the issue and only 4% believe Trump will. Biden outperformed Trump by managing coronoviruses (55% to 41%) and leading the nation in times of crisis (55% to 41%). Trump overtook Biden as the most reliable in handling the economy: 51% trusting the president, 46% Biden.

Trump's support outside his own party is rare. Among independents, 52% say they supported Biden for the presidency, compared to 41% for Trump, only 37% say they approved his handling of the presidency, and 68% His response to the protests seems to have been damaging.

And any goodwill earned by the president among Democrats seems to have vanished. Only 1% of Democrats say they would elect Trump if elections were held today, and now only 2% of Democrats say Trump handles the presidency, the worst measure of his presidency and the way it matches Is the opposite party of all times. Roosevelt lower than CNN or Gallup poll: A CNN / ORC poll in October 2008 had Republican George W. Bush's Democratic approval rating of 2%.

Behind Trump, however, remain enthusiastic about the vote (73% say they are extremely or very enthusiastic about the vote) and say their vote is a show of support for the president (70% say ) His support of Trump is more votes for Trump than for Biden).

Biden voters have renewed their enthusiasm since the last CNN election on that issue in April. While only 50% were extremely or very excited, 69% now say the same thing. Overall, 53% of Democrats now call themselves "extreme" excited about the vote, erasing a gap with Republicans that increased to 13 points in March.

However, the people behind Biden are largely opposed to Trump (60%) supporting Biden (37%). However, that result is not uniform. Black supporters of Biden are more likely than their white sponsors to indicate that their vote is a sign of support (Biden is 52% among black voters vs. 33% among whites), and older voters behind them are also more likely to say They are for Biden (51% of Biden voters 65 and older) compared to the President (947%). Among Biden supporters under age 50, nearly two-thirds say their support is to express their opposition to Trump.

CNN polling was conducted by SSRS from June 2–5 among a random national sample of 1,259 adults, including 1,125 registered voters by a live interviewer, accessed by landline or cell phone. The survey also included an inspection of black respondents for a total membership of 362 non-Hispanic black adults. This subset was weighted for its fair share of the general adult population of the United States. Results of the entire sample have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points. This is 3.6 points among the registered voters.
