Former Vice President Joe Biden looks in a formidable position as per the latest polls. Biden has bounced back tremendously after lagging behind his long-time friend Bernie Sanders until late February in the Democratic primaries. His rise started from the South Carolina primary, where he won with almost 2.5x support compared to Bernie Sanders. Biden’s graph kept on rising, followed by Super Tuesday and the withdrawal of campaigns by most Democratic leaders. After a series of primary losses, Bernie Sanders also quit his presidential race after a fierce head-on-head battle with Joe Biden. The latter is now the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
As per the new CBS News Background Tracker poll released on Sunday, Biden is still holding his lead against President Donald Trump in crucial battleground states of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The survey finds that Biden is leading Trump by 6 percentage points among likely voters in both states. Biden leads 49 to 43 percent in Pennsylvania and 48 to 42 percent in Wisconsin against President Trump. In 2016, Trump won both the battleground states by less than a percentage point, which helped him win the highest office. With Biden leading the polls consistently, it would be an exciting fight between them in November. On handling the coronavirus pandemic, voters from both states felt that Biden would have done a better job than what President Trump is doing. Biden has an edge of 10 points lead in Pennsylvania, and a 15 point lead in Wisconsin on coronavirus.
Even though Biden announced that he would unveil his vice presidential choice in the coming few days, a majority of voters from both states said that the decision wouldn’t particularly matter to them. Fifty-Six percent of the voters in Wisconsin and 62% in Pennsylvania said Biden’s selection was not very important. Trump is the only Republican to win these states since the 1980s. So, the battle would be great fun to watch out for this time. The CBS News Poll was conducted between August 4 and 7 by YouGov with a sample size of 1225 registered voters in Pennsylvania and 1009 registered voters in Wisconsin. The error margin is plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.Dr. Dhillon Randeep
