The Sunday Express has partnered with the Washington based Democracy Institute to produce a monthly snapshot of popular support in the presidential race against the Democrats’ Joe Biden.
The latest survey published last week put President Trump three points ahead overall on 48 points to 45, but seven points ahead in key swing states on 49 to 42.
The poll was Tweeted out by Mr Trump with the comment: "Moving along nicely. MAGA [make America great again]."
While the majority of polls have instead given Mr Biden a comfortable lead, sources from the Republican campaign team have reached out to the Sunday Express and Democracy Institute to say their results in private polling are similar.
