Biden is still leading in the polls, and voters say he won his first debate against Trump

Source: CNBC

Democrat Joe Biden came into the first debate ahead of President Donald Trump in the national polls. If voter reactions to the first debate are any indication, Biden is likely to keep a hold on the lead after the face-off, too.

Hereís what some of the national polling trackers said Thursday morning:
* The NBC News national polling average had Biden up 7.9 points over Trump. That figure is based on an unweighted average of the 10 most recent reliable public opinion polls.
* The RealClearPolitics general election polling average showed Biden with a 6.6-point lead over Trump.
FiveThirtyEightís national polling tracker gave Biden a 7.6-point advantage.
* Three polls asking who won Tuesday nightís debate show Biden coming out on top Ė though respondents, along with most commentators and even the moderator himself, gave dismal reviews to the contest itself, which appears to have changed few minds.

A CNBC/Change Research poll conducted Tuesday night and Wednesday found 53% of likely voters nationwide said Biden did a better job in the debate, compared with 29% for Trump. The poll also found 45% of those surveyed saying Trump performed worse than expectations, while 11% said the same for Biden.

2. Economy under Trump never as good as under Obama/Biden- he's lying repeatedly about this

Dems & Biden are giving Trump a free pass on his repeated claims that he had the Greatest Economy ever before the virus-- that's a Lie- his economy was never as good as under Obama/Biden---- Obama/Bidenís Last Three Years Of Job Growth All Beat Trumpís Best Year; and likewise for Reductions in Unemployment- for all races- 7 years of job growth under Obama/Biden after turning around major R recession. The Economy was much better under Obama/Biden. Huge problems under Trump; Contrary to Trumpís repeated LIES, the economy under Trump was never as good as under Obama/Biden
