In the latest monthly Democracy Institute (DI)/Sunday Express Poll, President Trump has 48 percent of the popular support over Joe Biden's 45 percent. In the key swing states, the gap is even bigger, with 49 percent for Trump to 42 percent for Biden giving the President a seven-point lead.


DI showed Trump ahead last month and even further ahead now. It carried out its poll by contacting a weighted sample of 1,500 people and playing them a series of recorded questions. They answered via their telephone keypads. DI has accurately predicted both the 2016 US Presidential Elections and the 2016 United Kingdom European Union Membership Referendum.


However, the DI Poll should be taken with a pinch of salt as other polls conducted by Reuters and the Pew Research Centre consistently show that Joe Biden is leading over Donald Trump by at least 5 percentage points.
