Joe Biden’s polling lead slips in wake of Post report on Hunter

Joe Biden’s polling edge about President Trump eroded this week amid The Post’s scandalous revelations about his son Hunter’s foreign dealings — but the Democratic candidate even now maintains a substantial guide.

The IBD/TIPP national tracking poll, introduced Saturday, places Biden at 50 % in the head-to-head matchup, with Trump at 43 per cent. The 7-issue advantage is perfectly exterior the survey’s 3 per cent margin of error.

But the poll of 1,009 probably voters noticed Biden’s assistance slip by just over 2 percentage factors since Monday — and uncovered an increase of just beneath 1 p.c for the incumbent.

The IBD/TIPP survey found power for Biden between impartial voters, who break up their support among Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016, but now back again the challenger by a 9-% margin.

The results also hinted at the possibility of a substantial selection of “shy Trump” voters in the citizens: whilst 47 per cent of respondents said they think that their neighbors are Trump voters, only 36 of them say they are surrounded by Biden backers.
