CNN poll: Biden leads Trump in key battleground states


Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s lead over President Donald Trump is holding steady in several key swing states ahead of Tuesday’s election, according to the latest CNN polls released Saturday.

The polling of likely voters in battleground states shows Biden ahead by a wider margin than most public polling in the state of Michigan, with 53 percent of voters supporting Biden to Trump’s 41 percent.

In Wisconsin, the results are in line with recent public polling, with 52 percent support for Biden and 44 percent for Trump.

In Arizona, Biden polled ahead of Trump, 50 to 46 percent, which is in line with recent public polling, but the results are within the 4.1-point margin of sampling error.

Biden narrowly leads Trump in North Carolina, 51 to 45 percent. Recent public polling in North Carolina has shown a tighter race in the state, but an NBC News/Marist poll released Friday showed a 6-point lead for the former vice president.

Trump won all four states in 2016, and the results in each could prove critical to determining a winner in Tuesday’s election. Both Trump and Biden have made stops across the Midwestern states over the past week.

The respective telephone polls were conducted by research firm SSRS from Oct. 23 to Oct. 30, with a sample size of over 1,000 for each.
