Election polls are showing a close race between the two candidates with the election less than seven months away.

The potential rematch has been viewed as a tight race, according to a new national poll of registered voters.

Why It's Important: Trump dominated the head-to-head poll against Biden in January and February. Biden has narrowed the gap in March and April, leading in some cases.

The new poll shows a high number of voters are still undecided about the election or are considering voting for someone other than the two leading candidates.

Biden has been steadily gaining on Trump when it comes to support from independent voters. The two candidates are now tied in support among these voters. Trump led by two points in the previous poll and by five points in late March.

Trump ranked ahead of Biden for net favorability in the latest poll, but both candidates continue to be perceived as more unfavorable than favorable by voters.

In the latest month, more voters reported hearing something negative about Trump than positive, compared to what they reportedly heard about Biden. The negative buzz could get worse for Trump in the next poll as his hush money trial is underway.
