Donald Trump and Joe Biden might just be going down to the wire in their race to claim the White House.
According to a new poll released on Saturday, and with just two days of campaigning left before Tuesday’s vote, Biden’s once comfortable lead is significantly reducing.
They definite battleground states as the six states decided by less than two points in 2016.
What this new development simply implies is that Donald Trump can be hopeful because he could yet again win through the electoral college, even if he loses the popular vote.
Joe Biden currently has 49.5 per cent support nationwide in the poll of likely voters, compared to 44.7 per cent for Trump — a not so wide 4.8 per cent lead.
This means Trump gained almost a full percentage point on Biden from the poll’s Friday measurement, which found the Democrat with a 5.6 per cent lead.
Joe Biden, 77, has had a constant lead over Donald Trump, 74 – but it has been a rollercoaster.
On October 20 Donald Trump was only two points behind, but Joe Biden has since made up lost territory.
The results of Saturday’s survey also show that his lead could be deceptive.
And among black and Hispanic voters, Trump has made substantial gains over his 2016 support.
The poll found Trump with 48 per cent of the Latino vote, neck-and-neck with Biden’s 50 per cent — and with 13 per cent of the African-American vote, a substantial improvement over the 8 per cent who voted for him in 2016.
You would recall that the IBD/TIPP poll, one of the most accurate of the 2016 presidential election, also had Hillary Clinton with a 1-per cent lead over Trump on the final weekend before Election Day.
