The democratic presidential nominee is displaying his strong support with the help of national polls, even in the last week of the elections. The former vice president is currently leading in North Carolina, as per the latest poll. Biden earned the support of more than half of the likely voters in North Carolina, where President Donald Trump won in 2016 against the then-Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. As per the Marist/NBC News poll released on Friday, Biden has a support of 52 percent likely voters compared to 46 percent support for Trump. With just four days left for Election Day, a 6-point lead against the incumbent president is considered to be a great advantage from now on. According to the RealClearPolitics average of North Carolina surveys, Biden is ahead of Trump by 1.2 percentage points.
North Carolina has a history of toggling their support for the presidential nominees from both the major parties. Former President Barack Obama won North Carolina in 2008, but the tables turned in 2012. Obama lost to his opponent Republican nominee Mitt Romney in 2012. Donald Trump won the state by 3.8 percentage points against Hillary Clinton in 2016. The polls show that Biden is all set to capture North Carolina and defeat Trump in 2020. According to the CNN poll as well, Biden is holding a steady lead in multiple swing states. Biden has a considerable lead in Michigan, with 53 percent likely voters preferring the former vice president than just 41 percent support for President Donald Trump. In the other critical swing state of Wisconsin, Biden holds 52 percent support to Trump’s 44 percent. Biden is leading in Arizona as well, with four percentage points. 50 to 46 for Trump.
Interestingly, Trump won all the four above states, which eventually proved critical for his Electoral College victory. The NBC News/ Marist poll took place between October 25th and 28, with a sample size of 800 likely voters of North Carolina. The error margin is plus or minus 4.7 percentage points. Biden’s lead of 6 points is well above the error margin.
