The lead Donald Trump holds over Joe Biden in terms of who would handle the economy better is the biggest of any candidate in the history of NBC polling.
The network, which began asking voters which candidate for the presidency would handle the economy better in 1992, found that 55 percent of voters believed that Trump would do the better job, compared to just 33 percent who put their faith in Biden.
Forty-eight percent also rated Trump as more likely to be competent and effective, against just 37 percent for Biden. In 2020, Biden led Trump on this measure by nine points, but his advantage has evaporated now voters have seen him in action in the White House.
The 81-year-old Democrat’s approval rating currently sits at 37 percent, lower than at any point in either his presidency or his predecessor’s.
