Several other national polls have Trump trailing Biden, who has led most polls of the crowded Democratic primary field ahead of the first debates this Wednesday and Thursday. Other polling has also indicated Biden leads Trump in several key states, including internal polling by a firm Trump’s reelection campaign severed ties with after it was leaked to the media earlier this month.
