According to the results of a public opinion poll published last week by the SSRS service commissioned by CNN, 57% of respondents are ready to vote in the upcoming elections for the Candidate from the Democratic Party of the United States, Joseph Biden. The current head of state, Donald Trump, would give his vote to 41% of respondents. Published on Sunday, the poll results by ABC and The Washington Post show that Biden is ahead of Trump in popularity by 12 percentage points. According to the Axios news portal, the White House’s current head believes that a busy election campaign will help him narrow this gap.
