(TargetLiberty.org) – Former President Donald Trump is slowly getting more support in New York, which has traditionally been a blue state. According to a new poll by the Siena Research Institute, the margin between President Joe Biden and the former president has been significantly reduced since the 2020 presidential election.
The poll showed that while Biden was still ahead in the race in New York, he was only leading by 9 percentage points. This is a significantly smaller margin than the one reported last month when Trump had been lagging behind by 21 percentage points. While these numbers still show Biden as the favorite in the state, it appears that Trump has been gaining a lot more support while Biden’s popularity has been dropping.
In 2020 Biden had completely crushed Trump in the state as he had won with 61 to 28 percent. However, his popularity does not appear to be as high.
The survey was conducted between October 15 and 19 and it included the responses of 1,225 registered New York voters. It specifically found that while Biden received 46 percent of support Trump received 37 percent. Biden also had his worst favorability in the state with 45 to 52 percent and his approval rating was only at 46 to 51 percent.
The poll also found that 52 percent of Democrats wanted to see a different presidential nominee and not Trump.
When the race included Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornell West on the ballot, the margin between Biden and Trump dropped even more to only 7 percent with Biden leading 38 to 31 percent.
