A new poll shows that Democratic candidate Joe Biden has a national lead of 14 points over President Trump after the first presidential debate last week.
The poll, conducted by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal, was conducted between September 30th and October 1st and included 800 registered voters. The error rate was around 3.5 percent.
The results showed that 53 percent of those polled said they would vote for the former Vice President, compared with 39 percent for Trump.
However, the president has claimed that polls and expert analysis of his chances in the White House contain obvious prejudice and were part of the reason he defeated Hillary Clinton, despite what most experts had predicted otherwise.

The poll was also conducted ahead of the announcement that Trump tested positive for COVID-19.
A senior administration official told Fox News, “Early signs suggest an extremely good forecast – but the next 48 hours will be critical.”
Trump has so far received two doses of remdesivir, an antiviral drug that has been approved by the FDA to treat the coronavirus.
“If you look at the therapeutics I’m taking right now, some of them and others coming out soon are honestly miracles,” Trump said in a video he posted on Twitter Saturday night.

“I don’t know the next few days, I think – that’s the real test, so we’ll see what happened in the next few days,” he added.
