A poll, by CBS/YouGov, concluded that 50% of likely voters chose Trump and 49% named Biden as their favorite.
The survey was conducted between September 12 and 15 among a representative sample of approximately 4,000 adult residents in the United States of America.
According to CBS, these results may be related to doubts about Joe Biden’s health, in a second term, but also to the idea that voters feel that they are now worse off in financial terms than they were with Trump as president.
Thus, among registered voters, only 34% believe that Biden will finish a second term, with 55% thinking that Trump would achieve it.
However, a majority of voters who responded to the survey (64%) believe that a new confrontation between Trump and Biden means that the American political system is not in good health.
On the other hand, almost half of those surveyed say they are now worse off financially than before the pandemic. These voters tend to support Donald Trump, with 71% of voting intentions, according to the survey.
According to CBS, Biden is currently losing 7% of those who supported him in 2020 while Trump is losing just 3%.
Meanwhile, in an interview with NBC, Donald Trump refused to answer questions about the Capitol riot, saying he would “tell people later at an appropriate time.”
Trump refused to say on “Meet the Press”, on that North American channel, what he did on January 6, 2021, after the start of the insurrection and whether he made phone calls from the time his supporters began to break into the building.
“I’m not going to tell you. I’m going to tell people later, at an appropriate time,” Trump told moderator Kristen Welker, after she asked if the former president spent that afternoon watching the attack on television, in a dining room at the White House.
Trump’s former aides said the former president isolated himself in a room outside the Oval Office to watch and even rewound and reviewed some parts, the Associated Press said.
In the interview, Trump said, in response to pressure from Welker about his public silence during the violence, that he had made “beautiful statements” on the day of the attack.
