Joe Biden’s lead over Donald Trump has shrunk from 10 points two weeks ago to 5 points today, according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll.
Yet most voters oppose the GOP’s pre-election push to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Biden supporters seem more energized than Trump supporters by the issue.
The survey, which was conducted from Sept. 21 to Sept. 23, found that after leading Trump 49 percent to 39 percent among registered voters earlier this month, Biden now leads 45 percent to 40 percent. The shift was within the poll’s margin of error (4.1 percent), yet there are signs Biden has lost some support among white voters and voters over 65 even as Trump has failed to grow his base much beyond the 40 percent mark. National polling averages show Biden ahead by about 7 percentage points.
At the same time, the battle to replace Ginsburg threatens to scramble the presidential contest — and here, a majority of voters agree with Biden that after voters “pick the [next] president,” the next “president should pick the justice for the Senate to consider.”
According to the poll, a full 53 percent of registered voters say that whoever wins the 2020 election should nominate the next Supreme Court justice; just 40 percent say the current president should pick Ginsburg’s successor. Voters also say by the same 13-point margin that the Senate elected in November (51 percent) should vote to confirm the next justice — not the current Senate (38 percent).
