Quinnipac University published a new poll today showing Biden with a 15 point lead over Donald Trump. Biden leads 52% to 37%, according to those polled. Biden's share increased by three points and Trump's fell four points since last month's sample, which placed them at 49% to 41%.
It's the first time Biden has exceeded 50% in the Quinnipiac poll, leaving the president with no hypothetical path to victory should Biden's support remain steady.
"This is a very unpleasant real time look at what the future could be for President Trump," said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy. "There is no upside, no silver lining, no encouraging trend hidden somewhere in this survey for the president"

* On handling a crisis, Biden leads 57 - 38 percent;
* On handling health care, Biden leads 58 - 35 percent;
* On the coronavirus response, Biden leads 59 - 35 percent;
* On addressing racial inequality, Biden leads 62 - 30 percent.
