Fifty-eight percent of registered U.S. voters who support presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the November election say their vote is more in opposition to President Trump than in favor of Biden, according to a joint poll by the Wall Street Journal and NBC News.

Those who said their vote was in favor of Biden rather than against Trump clocked in at 36%.

In contrast, roughly three-quarters (74%) of Trump's supporters said their vote is more in support of the president rather than against Biden (20%). These results seem to lend credence to the Trump campaign's insistence that the president's supporters are far more enthusiastic than Biden's.

Additionally, 39% of the 900 respondents said they had positive reviews of Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, while 35% said they viewed her negatively. Harris' net approval is 4 points higher than that of Vice President Mike Pence.
