For a number of months, most major national polls have shown 2020 presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden with a wide margin over Donald Trump, but a new CNN survey shows the President might be closing that divide.
Sunday night, CNN released a poll that showed 50 percent of registered voters indicating they will support Biden in November, with 46 percent saying they will cast their ballot for Trump.

Is President Trump closing the gap?
The 4 point margin is a dramatic decrease from the 14 point gap Biden had in the last CNN poll in June.
According to FiveThirtyEight CNN’s June poll as well as Sunday’s new poll were outliers.
In CNN’s June 8th survey, Biden lead by an average of 7.2 points in the polls. Yet on Sunday evening, even averaging in CNN’s latest poll, FiveThirtyEight showed Biden ahead by 8 points.

That’s a 10 point shift towards Trump In a month
