Joe Biden begins first general election TV ad blitz

He only held a one percentage point lead over Trump in the last swing-state poll released two weeks ago.

Immigrants who are part of the eight-year-old Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program will retain their protection from deportation and their authorisation to work in the United States - safe nearly certainly at least through the November election, immigration experts said.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll also showed that 57pc of USA adults disapproved of Mr Trump's performance in office, while just 38pc approved, marking Mr Trump's lowest approval rating since November, when Congress was conducting its impeachment inquiry into the Republican president.

Both those lines of attack have lost potency in recent days after Trump, 74, was seen having trouble walking down a ramp at a West Point graduation and his former national security advisor said the president had asked China's leader to help him win reelection. The campaign said it would provide masks and hand sanitizer to attendees.

"Trump needs to expand beyond traditional Republican groups and cut Biden's support among independents", says Shaw.

The numbers tell a different story.

The protests over police brutality against black Americans have proven to be a particularly searing moment for the nation, as well as President Trump's presidency.

The AP-NORC poll of 1,310 adults was conducted June 11-15 using a sample drawn from NORC's probability-based AmeriSpeak Panel, which is created to be representative of the US population.

A fresh reminder of Trump's disconnect came on Monday, when his handpicked choice for the Supreme Court, Justice Neil Gorsuch, penned a landmark decision that granted protection against workplace discrimination to gay and transgender workers. "His presidency has never been in tune with majority opinion in this country", Geer said.

Trump is still leading among evangelicals and is still leading for rural voters. Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake noted that the final 2016 Fox poll showed Hillary Clinton leading 48-44 before she won the popular vote 48-46.

Trump's long-standing pledge to crack down on immigration has been pushed off center stage, however, as the coronavirus and the economy became chief concerns. "And if we don't win those lawsuits, I think - I think it puts the election at risk", Trump said.

In the first ad, Mr Biden says that as president he won't "traffic in fear and division" as video shows Mr Trump's comments on the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.

President Trump's overall approval rating during this moment of tremendous upheaval sits at 39 percent.

The poll also found that more Americans saw Biden as respectful in the face of the "Black Lives Matter" protests and riots, and the coronavirus pandemic.

The poll results also confirm voters increasingly prefer Biden and the Democrats to Trump and the Republicans when it comes to handling key issues.

These unnamed advisers "say his repeated acts of political self-sabotage.have significantly damaged his re-election prospects, and yet he appears mostly unable, or unwilling, to curtail them".
