Biden leads Trump by single digits in New York: Poll

President Biden is leading former President Trump by single digits in a head-to-head match-up in New York, according to a poll released Thursday.

A Siena College poll of New York registered voters found Biden leading Trump by 8 points, 47 percent to 39 percent.

Six percent said they didn’t know how they would vote or refused to answer, while another 5 percent said they planned to vote for another candidate, and 4 percent said they would not vote.

A similar poll conducted in May showed Biden leading Trump by 9 points, and one in April showing him leading by 10 points.

Biden’s favorability rating fell 3 points in the poll since May, from 45 percent to 42 percent, while his unfavorability rating grew from 50 percent to 53 percent.

Trump also has also seen his favorability rating slide downward in Siena’s polling, from 39 percent in May to 37 percent. His unfavorability rating rose from 56 percent to 59 percent.

“While Biden maintains the support of three-quarters of Democrats, Trump has support from 85 percent of Republicans and leads Biden 45-28 percent with independents,” Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg said in a press release.

“A gender gap has reopened as men support Trump 46-42 percent and women favor Biden 51-33 percent. White voters are evenly divided. And while Biden has a commanding lead with non-white voters, Trump garners support from 29 percent of Black and 26 percent of Latino voters.”

Other recent polling has shown Biden underperforming in the Empire State.

An Emerson College Polling/The Hill/PIX11 survey released last month showed Biden holding a mere 7-point lead over Trump at 48 percent to 41 percent.

The poor showing for Biden is notable given New York has been a reliably blue bastion during presidential cycles, but the polling underscores how the president is even having trouble shoring up his base in Democratic-leaning states.

The Siena College poll was conducted between June 12-17 with 805 New York registered voters surveyed. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.1 percentage points.
