A new CNN poll has Donald Trump leading President Joe Biden by a whopping six-points going head-to-head.

That's the biggest lead Trump has ever had over Biden in a CNN poll. It is also the largest gap for Trump for any major poll taken in April.

The poll showed Trump holding 49 percent of the vote and Biden at 43 percent.

Eight percent chose unsure/other.

And in the coming rematch, opinions about the first term of each man vying for a second four years in the White House now appear to work in Trump’s favor, with most Americans saying that, looking back, Trump’s term as president was a success, while a broad majority says Biden’s has so far been a failure. … Republicans now are more unified around the idea that Trump’s presidency was a success than Democrats are that Biden’s has been one. Overall, 92% of Republicans call Trump’s time in office a success, while just 73% of Democrats say Biden’s has been a success so far. Among independents, 51% say Trump’s presidency was successful, while only 37% see Biden’s as a success.

The lead for Trump goes up when other candidates are included.

CNN noted that when the polling allowed independent candidates Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, “Trump holds 42% to Biden’s 33%, with Kennedy at 16%, West at 4% and Stein at 3%. Kennedy draws 13% each from supporters of Biden and Trump in the initial two-way matchup.”

Voters also said that the economy was their top issue and more so in this White House race “than they were in each of the past two presidential contests.”

70 percent of all Americans said this.

November is still far away, but with about a half year away, things are currently looking good for Team Trump.
