President Trump has opened up a massive lead on Democrat nominee Joe Biden, according to a new poll conducted by Arizent, the publisher of Accounting Today.
According to the survey, accountants favor Trump by a wide margin, with 55 percent of respondents preferring the incumbent to Biden’s shocking 38 percent.
Biden takes a hit
Pollsters found that the majority of accountants believe that a Biden presidency would be a disaster, with one respondent claiming “I believe a Biden-Harris win would destroy the country.”
Another respondent issued an even more urgent warning, saying that they would “close my business and retire if Harris/Biden is elected.”
Respondents were highly polarized, however, with those on Biden’s side claiming similar opinions. One Biden supporter said that they believe that “if Trump is re-elected, it will be a disaster for the country, the environment, and the health and well-being of the nation.”
The poll surveyed the opinions of over 400 accountants from across the country between Sept. 17 and Sept. 22.
Election heats up
With just 35 days to go until election day, many national polls still place Joe Biden in the lead. However, polls of specific industries and swing states paint a different picture.
A new Trafalgar Group survey released Monday found that Biden’s lead in Wisconsin is collapsing as President Trump gains ground.
According to the survey, 44.9 percent of the 1,189 respondents said they would pull the handle for Trump, while 47.7 percent indicated support for Biden.
Another poll released last week found that Virginia is now a battleground state as Biden’s lead over Trump has dropped five points.
According to a poll released Thursday by the Judy Ford Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University, 48 percent of likely Virginia voters support Biden, while 43 percent support Trump.
Even more shocking for the Biden campaign is the fact that Biden held a nearly 14-point lead over Trump just a month ago. It’s not a good trend for the Biden campaign with just weeks to go until election day.
