Poll Finds Voters in Two Crucial States Repelled by Trumpís Debate Behavior

Biden is ahead by seven points in Pennsylvania and five points in Florida, according to the Times/Siena survey.

By overwhelming margins, voters in Pennsylvania and Florida were repelled by President Trumpís conduct in the first general election debate, according to New York Times/Siena College surveys, as Joseph R. Biden Jr. maintained a lead in the two largest battleground states.

Over all, Mr. Biden led by seven percentage points, 49 percent to 42 percent, among likely voters in Pennsylvania. He led by a similar margin, 47-42, among likely voters in Florida.

The surveys began Wednesday, before the early Friday announcement that President Trump had contracted the coronavirus. There was modest evidence of a shift in favor of Mr. Biden in interviews on Friday, including in Arizona where a Times/Siena survey is in progress, after controlling for the demographic and political characteristics of the respondents.

One day of interviews is not enough to evaluate the consequences of a major political development, and it may be several days or longer before even the initial effects of Mr. Trumpís diagnosis can be ascertained by pollsters.

1. It is highly unlikely he will behave that way again. If they have another debate I doubt he will

have the energy for that repeat performance

2. I think We've Seen The One and Only Debate Between Biden and Trump

He should still be under his 14 day quarantine for the next scheduled debate.

3. If there is another debate, trump must test negative twice, 48 hours apart, otherwise it has to be

remote or no deal, and the results of the test must be made public
