Trump is beating Biden 47% to 40% among registered voters, with 13% remaining undecided, according to a Messenger/HarrisX poll. The former president’s margin of victory grew from his 2-point lead reflected in a previous Messenger/HarrisX survey released on Nov. 1, when 12% of registered voters were not sure of their choice.
Independents favored Trump over Biden at 45% to 32%, with 23% remaining undecided, and the former president also led among the crucial voting bloc in a four-way race with third-party candidates Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West on the ballot, according to the survey.
Biden also trailed Trump by seven points in a four-way matchup, with independents Kennedy and West receiving 14% and 2% support, respectively, and 11% were unsure of their choice.
The survey follows a series of other national and crucial battleground state polls that reflect Trump leading Biden by several points. A New York Times/Siena College poll released on Nov. 5 found the former president winning in Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania anywhere from three to 10 points.
