Biden leads Trump by 11 points nationally: poll

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden holds an 11-point lead over President Trump nationally, according to a new poll.

The poll from the Democracy Fund + UCLA Nationscape Project is the latest to show Biden pushing to a double-digit lead over the president, including a Fox News poll that was released Thursday.

In the Democracy Fund + UCLA Nationscape survey, 50 percent of respondents said that they would vote for Biden, while 39 percent said that they would vote for Trump.

Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, led Trump in most demographics, including an overwhelming 24-point lead with female voters.

Male voters polled slightly in Trump’s favor, 46 percent to 44 percent. The various male age demographics were split between the pair, with men ages 18-29 and 45-64 favoring Biden, while men ages 30-44 and 65+ favored the president.

“Since the start of the race. Biden has lost some ground with those [younger] voters, while simultaneously holding steady and maybe even gaining some ground with older voters,” Robert Griffin, research director for the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group, told USA Today. The news outlet was also a researcher in the project.

Biden, however, led every age demographic among female voters.

Trump has seen his poll numbers fall steadily since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, with the president also receiving large backlash over his handling of the nationwide protests that have taken place in recent weeks following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25.

The poll — conducted May 28-June 10 — surveyed 10,601 registered voters and had a margin of error of 1.5 percentage points.
