BOOM: New poll shows Trump destroying Biden among independents

A new poll out today shows that former President Trump is destroying Joe Biden among independents, with Trump leading by a whopping 12 points.

The overall poll shows Trump leading Biden by 4 points.

Here’s more from Newsmax:

Former President Donald Trump early Thursday touted the results of a new NPR/PBSNewsHour/Marist poll showing him ahead of President Joe Biden by 8 percentage points among independents.

“54 to 42,” Trump said outside the Manhattan courtroom where jurors are to reconvene for deliberations in his business records trial. “That’s among independents. That’s the best we’ve ever done, the poll says, among independents.”

According the poll, Biden and Trump are in a statistical tie – with 50% for Biden and 48% for Trump lying within the margin of error – but Trump pulled out the lead of 54%-42% over Biden among independents.

However, the two were evenly matched, with Biden at 49% and Trump at 47% among voters who said they have an unfavorable opinion of them.

Meanwhile, Trump came out four points ahead of Biden, at 44% to 40% when independent candidates Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West, as well as Green Party candidate Jill Stein were added in.

Head to head matchups aren’t really a good indicator of much because there will be other candidates on the ballot, like RFK Jr. When all candidates are added, the polling looks like this:

Trump 44%
Biden 40%
RFK Jr. 8%
Stein 3%
West 2%

Obviously it’s very early but the trend among polls is clear right now and that has Trump, on average, ahead of the field by at least 2 points.
