“Recently, in the past few weeks with the mishandling of COVID-19, with what seem to be missteps on where the country wants to be on protests and on issues of race, we have seen significant widening in this race,” Terrance Woodbury, Democratic pollster and founding partner at Hit Strategies, told Hill.TV.

The poll found 12 percent of black voters said they would support Trump if the election were held today compared to 74 percent who said they would vote for Biden.

However, Woodbury pointed to recent Trump approval numbers, where 24 percent of black voters said they approve of the job Trump is doing in the White House, as a warning sign to Biden’s chances in November.

“I’ll tell you right now, if he can get half of those 24 percent of people to vote for him, then he is reelected,” he added.

The Hill-HarrisX poll was conducted online among 2,827 registered voters between June 1-4. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 1.87 percentage points.
