Since the Emerson College July national poll, President Donald Trump has tightened the presidential race to a two-point margin, and is now trailing former Vice President Joe Biden 49% to 47%.
Spencer Kimball, Director of Emerson College Polling explains "the Republican convention gave Trump his most positive week of news coverage which likely attributes to his bounce in this month's poll and increasing job approval."
For the first time since he's taken office, Trump's job approval rating is approaching a majority, at 49% approval and 47% disapproval. This is a jump of four points since July, where Trump had 45% approval and 51% disapproval.Polling firm Rasmussen claims that "national poll suppression" is taking place in order to hide President Trump gaining on Joe Biden.
