The Reuters/Ipsos Poll, rated B-,  taken October 2-3, shows a Biden lead of 51% to 41%. It is showing some reaction to Trump’s illness. Nearly three out of four Americans do not think Trump took Covid-19 precautions seriously enough.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Democrat Joe Biden opened his widest lead in a month in the U.S. presidential race after President Donald Trump tested positive for the coronavirus, and a majority of Americans think Trump could have avoided infection if he had taken the virus more seriously, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Sunday.
