As the election season enters its last week, President Trump is on the move, ahead of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in Monday’s debut of the daily Rasmussen Reports head-to-head poll.

In its now daily White House Watch, Rasmussen has Trump at 48% and Biden at 47%, the latest sign that the election has tightened in the 11th hour.

What’s more, the pollster Trump prefers to follow and tout has his approval rating at 52%, a key factor to winning reelection. Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama were both at 50% when they edged out reelection victories.

The poll data showed Trump building an unusual coalition. For example, 27% of black people said they would choose the president if the election were held today. In 2016, he won 8% of the black vote.

Also, Trump is doing better with Republicans than Biden is with Democrats. Rasmussen said that 84% of Republicans would choose Trump, while 77% of Democrats would vote for Biden.

The polls in the closing days of the race have been scattershot, though several have tracked Trump’s rise, such as Rasmussen, Trafalgar, and John Zogby Strategies.

Mass media polls, meanwhile, have shown Biden with a healthy lead, similar to how they did in 2016 when then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but lost in enough key battleground states to lose the Electoral College vote, a trend some pollsters see repeating.
