For those wondering how this would play out, we're starting to see some numbers and they're not good for Trump.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's lead over President Donald Trump grew slightly in one of the first national polls conducted since the president announced he tested positive for COVID-19.
A Reuters/Ipsos poll released Sunday found Biden ahead of Trump by 10 percentage points (51%-41%) among likely voters, a 1-point jump from a poll Sept. 30. That increase falls within the survey's margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted before Trump became ill found Biden had surged to a 14-point lead among registered voters, a 6-point jump from a NBC/WSJ survey Sept. 20.
