Former Vice President Joe Biden has a 10-point lead over President Donald Trump, according to a new poll.

Forty-three percent of registered voters said they would support Biden for president if the election were held today.

6% of likely voters say they are undecided on who they will vote for. Voters not affiliated with either major party also support Biden more than Trump with 48% favoring the former vice president and 36% supporting Trump.

"We know the enthusiasm gaps between Biden and Trump, with Trump's supporters being very enthusiastic and insistent on voting for him, margins that close are problematic", Woodbury added.

Whenever President Donald Trump has been down in the polls, he has regularly touted numbers published by Rasmussen Reports, which has usually given the president significantly better approval numbers than other pollsters.

The Hill-HarrisX poll was conducted online among 933 registered voters between July 3 and 4.

Rasmussen's new numbers are right in line with other pollsters, as the current polling average at website FiveThirtyEight gives Biden a lead of 9.7 percentage points.
