Exclusive poll: Biden and Trump tie at 37% as RFK Jr. costs Trump a narrow lead

It’s a tie: One year before the presidential election, Joe Biden and Donald Trump each command 37% of the vote in a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll − with independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. costing Trump what would have been a narrow lead.Kennedy, scion of the nation’s most revered Democratic family, won 13% of the vote in a hypothetical match-up, drawing voters who by 2-1 said they would otherwise support the probable Republican nominee.Progressive activist Cornel West, also planning an independent campaign, is at 4%. His supporters would break to Biden if he weren’t on the ballot.The survey’s findings underscore the complicated arithmetic and the unsettled politics of the likely rematch of the 2020 nominees, especially with the addition of at least one significant independent candidacy and possibly more.
