Whenever President Donald Trump has been down in the polls, he has regularly touted numbers published by Rasmussen Reports, which has usually given the president significantly better approval numbers than other pollsters.
However, the president can no longer count on Rasmussen to be his safe space, as its latest numbers show Trump losing to former Vice President Joe Biden by ten percentage points.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds Biden earning 50% support among Likely U.S. Voters to Trump’s 40%. Six percent (6%) remain undecided,” Rasmussen Reports writes. “The new survey finds Trump with 74% of the Republican vote. Biden has the support of 79% of Democrats. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, it’s Biden 48%, Trump 36%.”
Rasmussen’s new numbers are right in line with other pollsters, as the current polling average at website FiveThirtyEight gives Biden a lead of 9.7 percentage points.
Biden’s lead over Trump has grown significantly over the last month as the novel coronavirus has swept across the country and led to record numbers of daily cases.
‘He blew it!’ Keith Olbermann erupts over Trump’s ‘stupid and dull’ debate performance — ‘the oxygen of his rise to power was gone’
On his new political show on YouTube, commentator Keith Olbermann ripped into President Donald Trump for his performance during the final presidential debate. Olbermann said that Trump "ran out of bullsh*t" as he tried to attack his rival Joe Biden.
"I don't mean to say that he was honest," he clarified. "It seems he was lying and manipulating reality at an even higher rate than usual. But with a few momentary exceptions, the salesmanship, the oxygen of his rise to power, was gone."
Olbermann said Trump needed "a debate knockout." Instead, the incumbent president just appeared "stupid and dull."
Trump argues Biden is the candidate of ‘needless death’ — on the ‘worst day of the pandemic’

Jared and Ivanka threaten to sue the Lincoln Project for ‘enormous’ damages over Times Square billboards on COVID: report
Attorneys representing Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are threatening to sue the Lincoln Project over two Times Square billboards criticizing the administration's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Lincoln Project posted a copy of a letter sent by attorney Marc Kasowitz.
"I am writing concerning the false, malicious and defamatory ads that the Lincoln Project is displaying on billboards in Times Square," Kasowitz wrote.
"Those ads show Ms. Trump smiling and gesturing toward a death count of Americans and New Yorkers, and attribute to Mr. Kushner the statement that "[New Yorkers] are going to suffer and that's their problem" (alteration in original), with body bags underneath," the letter read.
