WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 5, 2024) – Cygnal, one of the nation’s fastest growing and most accurate private polling firms, released the following shock national poll (conducted July 1-2) of 1,500 likely general election voters.    “Post-debate, we’ve seen the largest single month-over-month movement towards Republicans across-the-board, from R+0 to R+4, in the history of our national polling,” said Pollster and Cygnal President, Brent Buchanan. “President Biden’s image worsened to 62 percent having an unfavorable view of him after 67 percent of respondents said they watched his disastrous debate performance. Trump’s performance earned him 4 points of undecided debate-watchers and another 3 points from those who were Biden supporters heading into the debate. There’s little question this has further eroded the political environment for Democrats.”
