Trump leads Kamala by wider margin than he’s leading Biden: Emerson poll

Trump is leading Biden nationally, 46 to 43 percent. When Trump goes head-to-head with Harris, however, the lead widens with Trump at 49 to Harris' 43 percent

In a poll where Donald Trump faces Vice President Kamala Harris as his opponent for the presidential election, he beats the VP more than in a poll where he is matched up against Joe Biden. The new poll may bring a hypothetical match-up between Trump and Harris under scrutiny, as Biden has been pressured to drop out of the race by many Democrats.

According to the new poll from Emerson College, Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden nationally, 46 to 43 percent. When Trump is placed head-to-head with Harris, however, the lead widens with Trump at 49 to Harris' 43 percent. Spencer Kimball, the executive director of Emerson College Polling, said of the poll, “Since before the first presidential debate, former President Trump’s support remains at 46%, while President Biden’s support has decreased two percentage points."

“Notable shifts away from Biden occurred among independent voters, who break for Trump 42% to 38%; last month they broke for Biden 43% to 41%." With third party candidates added to the mix, Trump maintains his lead ahead of Biden, coming in at 44 percent compared to Biden's 40 percent. Robert F. Kenndy Jr. has six percent support in the poll and Jill Stein as well as Cornell West have one percent of support each.

The poll results come amid Biden facing increased pressure from those in the Democrat Party for him to drop out of the race since his disasterous debate performance against Donald Trump 2 weeks prior. Democrat lawmakers, donors, as well as left-wing pundits in the media have called for Biden to bow out. However, he has vowed that he will be staying in the race against Trump.

The poll from Emerson was from July 7-8 with a sample of 1,370 voters. It has a margin of error at +/- 2.6 and was weighted by gender, race, party affiliation, and other factors.
