Election at Hand, Biden Leads Trump in Four Key States, Poll Shows

Source: NY Times



Joseph R. Biden Jr. holds a clear advantage over President Trump across four of the most important presidential swing states, a new poll shows, bolstered by the support of voters who did not participate in the 2016 election and who now appear to be turning out in large numbers to cast their ballots, mainly for the Democrat.

Mr. Biden, the former vice president, is ahead of Mr. Trump in the Northern battlegrounds of Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, as well as in the Sun Belt states of Florida and Arizona, according to a poll of likely voters conducted by The New York Times and Siena College. His strength is most pronounced in Wisconsin, where he has an outright majority of the vote and leads Mr. Trump by 11 points, 52 percent to 41 percent.

Mr. Bidenís performance across the electoral map appears to put him in a stronger position heading into Election Day than any presidential candidate since at least 2008, when in the midst of a global economic crisis Barack Obama captured the White House with 365 Electoral College votes and Mr. Biden at his side.

Mr. Trumpís apparent weakness in many of the countryís largest electoral prizes leaves him with a narrow path to the 270 Electoral College votes required to claim victory, short of a major upset or a systemic error in opinion polling surpassing even the missteps preceding the 2016 election. Should Mr. Bidenís lead hold in three of the four states tested in the survey, it would almost certainly be enough to win, and if he were to carry Florida, he would most likely need to flip just one more large state that Mr. Trump won in 2016 to clinch the presidency.

4. Don't believe this as.........

polls do not take in voter suppression. Here in Georgia I have seen in the last 10 years the effect. Stacy Abrams was "tied". Michelle Nunn was too. Jason Carter was too.

Thousands of Blacks went to vote and their polling place was moved. Their polling place broke down. Their polling place had six hour waits when I had a ten minute wait.

John Lewis is still a hero. Michelle Obama said bring a chair and a lunch. I expect voting will go on to midnight again in Georgia.

Remember Lewis when you do your part and what he went through for us all.
