Harvard-Harris Poll: Donald Trump Gains 5 Points on Joe Biden in Past Month:
President Donald Trump has gained five points against Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in the national popular vote in less than a month, and the two are now separated by just two points, according to a Harvard CAPS-Harris poll released on Tuesday.
The polling news comes hours before Trump and Biden are set to square off in the first presidential debate in Cleveland on Tuesday night and just five weeks before election day, November 3.
Forty-seven percent of likely voters back Biden, while 45 percent support Trump, giving Biden just a two point advantage over Trump. Unlike most other major polls, the Harvard CAPS-Harris poll does not release the margin of error associated with its poll results.
The poll of 1,314 registered voters was conducted online between September 22 and September 24.
“The poll shows the race closing to 2 points with likely voters and 4 points with leaners as the president showed improvement in the economy that dipped below double-digit unemployment and hit the theme of curbing unrest on which he gained,” Mark Penn, director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris poll told the Hill.
Tuesday’s poll provided good news for the president, as Biden’s seven-point lead from earlier in the month dropped by a full five points, to just two points. --->READ MORE HERE

President Trump Leads Joe Biden by 5 Points in Iowa:
President Trump leads Democrat candidate Joe Biden by five points in Iowa in a head-to-head matchup, 50 percent to 45 percent, according to a poll released on Thursday by Data for Progress.
When minor party candidates on the ballot are included, the president’s lead is three points, 47 percent to 44 percent, with Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen and Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins each receiving one percent of the vote.
The poll also shows that Democrat challenger Theresa Greenfield has a one point lead over incumbent Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), 46 percent to 45 percent, which is within the poll’s margin of error.
The Data for Progress poll of 743 likely voters was conducted between September 23 and September 28, and has a 3.6 percent margin of error.
The poll does not provide a breakdown of respondents by party affiliation, but states, “The sample was weighted to be representative of likely voters by age, gender, education, race, and voting history.” --->READ MORE HERE
