A Fox News Poll taken March 20-24 shows a steady national presidential race with Joe Biden leading Donald Trump by 49% to 40%, about the same as the 8 point lead he had in the February poll and the 9 point lead Biden had in January. In fact, in the 12 surveys taken by the Fox News Poll over the last year, Biden has led Trump in each of them by 7 to 14 points.
Trump’s approval has improved slightly to 48% in the poll as oppose to 51% who disapprove. It is common for a president to gain approval at the start of any crisis, though usually it is much greater than this. In December and January Trump’s approval was 45% and it was 47% in the February poll. Congressional approval is up 5% since January.
The poll also measured a Biden/Harris ticket, a Biden/Klobuchar ticket, and a Biden/Warren ticket, all against Trump/Pence. Biden won 50% to 42% with either Kamala Harris or Amy Klobuchar as his Vice Presidental candidate and won 52% to 42% with Elizabeth Warren. Americans approved of Biden’s decision to pick a female running mate by 63% to 20%.
