The latest CNN polls and surveys from other major news organizations also show Trump is losing support with Biden gaining momentum after the recent chaotic months shaken by the coronavirus pandemic, an economic downturn, and national protests against racism and police brutality against blacks.

When asked about how Trump handled his job as president, 47% said they strongly disapproved and 26% said they strongly approved. The survey also shows their fight against the coronavirus pandemic, with 58% disapproval and 38% approval. Fifty percent approve of the way it handles the economy, and 45 percent disapprove.

The majority of voters, 61%, also disapprove of how the President has handled race relations and 33% approve. When asked about his handling of the protests over George Floyd’s death, 62% disapprove and 29% approve.

The poll was conducted among 1,337 registered voters June 17-22 and has a margin of error of +/- 3.0 percent.
