President Donald Trump’s support was rated at 52 percent on Monday, Nov. 2, and he is in a near tie with Democratic rival Joe Biden on the eve of the election, according to Rasmussen Reports, one of the most accurate pollsters on Election Day in 2016.
President Trump is seeing good job performance, with his daily approval ratings ranging between 51% and 52%, 10 days before the Nov. 3 election, matching the highest levels recorded this year, Rasmussen indicates in its Trump Approval Index History.
Data from the pollster shows that President Trump’s job performance reached this year’s high of 53% on Sept. 18 after he had been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize following his administration-brokered peace deal in the Middle East. The rating fell to as low as 42 percent several times in May and June as the United States was struggling to combat the CCP Virus (coronavirus) pandemic.
Rasmussen claims that it is now the only nationally recognized public opinion firm that tracks President Trump’s job approval ratings on a daily basis.
The polling agency also reveals in another survey on Nov. 2 that President Trump is running neck-and-neck with the Democratic presidential candidate.
The daily White House Watch survey, conducted between Oct. 28 and Nov. 1, shows that 47% of respondents said that they will vote for Trump, 48% said they prefer Biden, while 3% like some other candidates and 2% are still undecided.
Such a narrow lead will not ensure a victory for Biden. On eve of the 2016 election, then-Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton held a 45 percent to 43 percent lead over Trump in the White House Watch but still lost the presidency in the Electoral College.
Earlier this month, the longtime televangelist Pat Robertson prophesied that President Trump will win the 2020 election, explaining that is what God told him.
“That doesn’t mean you sit home and don’t vote. That means you get out and do everything you can to work, but he’s going to win. That’s, I think, a given,” Robertson added.
