The New York Times - Stocks fall after Trump says he is pulling the plug on stimulus talks.
President Trump on Tuesday abruptly ended talks with Democrats on an economic stimulus bill, sending the stock market plunging and dealing a final blow to an intensive set of on-again-off-again negotiations to deliver additional pandemic aid to struggling Americans before the November elections.
Mr. Trump announced that he was pulling the plug on the effort in a series of afternoon tweets in which he accused Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California of “not negotiating in good faith" and urged Senate Republicans to focus solely on confirming his nominee to the Supreme Court in the coming weeks. ...
... and Trump is tanking in the polls - Biden now has a 16% lead in one poll.
"Among likely voters, 57% say they back Biden and 41% Trump in the poll that was conducted entirely after the first debate and mostly after the President's coronavirus infection was made public."
"It is important to note that these increases in support for Biden have not come alongside substantial decreases in backing for Trump. The President's core supporters remain as supportive of him as they have been, if not more."
