President Donald Trump has replaced the head of his re-election campaign with his deputy after weeks of bad poll numbers showing him trailing Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, by a widening margin, and continued hammering he has gotten for his handling of the Covid-19 epidemic.

Bill Stepien, the deputy, is the new campaign manager, replacing Brad Parscale, who will stay on as a senior advisor for data and digital operations. Both men are veterans of Trump’s 2016 campaign. And more members of that team have been brought back such as Jason Miller, to head strategy, and other changes are expected.

Trump trails Biden by more than 8 points in the RealClearPolitics average of all polls and by more than 9 points in FiveThirtyEight’s weighted average of polls. In some of the polls released this week, the president is behind the Democrat by double digits — 10 points in CNBC’s, 15 points in Quinnipiac University’s and 11 points in NBC/Wall Street Journal’s.
