A CNN Poll of Polls published on Monday revealed that Presidential Candidate Joe Biden remains ahead of President Donald Trump by nine points nationwide.

According to a report, the poll which aimed to predict the results of the upcoming general election saw that 51% of registered voters in the U.S. continues to support Biden while only 42% backs Trump.

The former vice-president was originally set to accept the Demoratic nomination earlier this month but due to the situation in Wisconsin, he will instead accept his home state via a virtual national address in Delaware.

Similarly, another poll released by the SSRS on Sunday showed that Biden also leads with 50% support while Trump only falls second at 46%. And, if averaged with other polls conducted by other institutions, the Poll of Polls still yields a higher difference in votes.

Out of the six national telephone polls made to registered voters recently, only a third were done after Biden picked California Senator Kamala Harris as his VP. The said polls also reflected the reactions of the citizens as it showed that there is a significant approval for Biden's selection of Harris amounting to 52% of registered American voters - a majority of the said approvals being made by Democrats.

A similar poll conducted by the Washington Post/ABC News poll found a 54% approval for Biden's pick with 86% of approvals coming from Democrats.

However, with the surge of approvals being directed to the Biden-Harris duo, recent polls largely find that Trump's approval rating has sharply plummeted on the eve of conventions. Polls from the CNN, Washington Post/ABC News, NBC News/Wall Street Journal and Fox News all show a similar trend as lesser percentages of registered voters approve and more disapprove of the President.

Compared to previous years, this year's polls have piqued the interest of many and has encouraged more voters to become more involved in the upcoming presidential elections.
