Republicans have apparently turned on President Donald Trump and the GOP-held Senate's attempt to move forward on a swift successor to late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrat Joe Biden gained eight points before Tuesday night's debate and amid the impending Supreme Court battle, getting over 50% support from likely voters in the latest Rasmussen Reports poll released Wednesday.
Biden's 51% is 8 points in front of Trump's 43%, "his lowest since early August," according to Rasmussen.
"The race had narrowed over the previous three weeks, but Biden has now cleared the 50% mark for the first time," according to Rasmussen, a poll that has tended to be more favorable to Republicans and Trump.
Most notably, Republican support was cratering for Trump amid the effort to confirm a Supreme Court Justice nominee. The poll "finds Trump with 79% support among Republicans," according to Rasmussen, a number far lower than the previous support Trump had enjoyed in the 90s.
Also, now "Biden has 84% of the Democrat vote and has reclaimed the lead among voters not affiliated with either major party," per Rasmussen.
The survey of 3,000 likely voters was conducted Sept. 16-17 and 20-22 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
