Biden Has More Support From Women Than Clinton

Americans troubled more by police actions in George Floyd killing than violence at some protests, poll finds

Virus, racial unrest force Pres. Trump campaign to recalibrate

Biden leads with 55%, his highest mark in any CNN tracking poll yet, while Trump trails with 41%, his lowest mark in the network's polling.

More than 60% of voters say Biden would do a better job handling race relations, compared to just 31% who chose Trump.

This is the worst presidential approval rating since January of 2018 and very similar with approval ratings for Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush at this point in their reelection years.

The slide comes as Trump's former Cabinet officials, retired generals, religious leaders and even members of his own party publicly criticized his photo-op stunt that resulted in peaceful protesters being tear-gassed near St. John's Church after his threat to deploy the military to police protests. In these matters, Biden leads by a margin of two to one.

The president, who rarely misses an opportunity to blast a poll that he doesn't like, took to Twitter soon after the survey's release to charge that "CNN Polls are as Fake as their Reporting".

Trump recorded a surprise victory last week when job numbers for May showed a drop rather than a sharp rise as many had predicted.

Economy adding 2.5 million jobs in May
But the European Central Bank also warned it expects the region's economy to shrink 8.7% this year due to the pandemic. The yield on the 10-year Treasury surged 10.24% to 0.904% while yield on the 30-year Treasury jumped 3.33% to 1.678%.

The newest poll, published Monday, interviewed 1,259 American adults and was conducted from June 2 to June 5.

Most surprisingly, the survey indicated that 46 percent of voters believed that the current state of the economy was "poor" and 59 percent of voters were more concerned with police actions after the death of Floyd for "protests that have turned violent". The 46-year old black man died after a white Minneapolis police officer put his knee on the handcuffed Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes.

Trump has been slammed for his response to the riots, unrest and clashes - as the president has focused more on mitigating the violence and stopping protests than addressing race relations or police brutality.

The poll also found that only 38 per cent of respondents approved the way Trump handled the presidency, while a majority of these participants, 57 per cent, disapproved.

In 2016, Mrs Clinton's disapproval ratings were almost as high as Mr Trump's, and voters who disliked both candidates largely broke for the latter. The president had a 5-point advantage over Biden on handling the economy. NBC exit polls from 2016 had Clinton with a 13 percentage point lead over Trump among women.

Trump aides have warned the president that the renewed national conversation about racial injustice and the president's big "law and order" push have animated parts of the Democratic base - Black and younger voters - whose lagging enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton in 2016 cleared the way for Trump's narrow victory.
