Former Vice President Joe Biden yet again demonstrated his dominance in the polls against President Donald Trump. Biden has a 13-point lead over Trump in Pennsylvania as per the Monmouth University poll released on Wednesday. The poll indirectly reveals Biden's strength in the same state where Trump won four years ago. The survey shows that Biden has 53 percent support among the registered voters in Pennsylvania, while Trump secured only 40 percent of the support. President Donald Trump defeated the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton with a slight margin of less than a percentage point before assuming power.
Miffed with Trump's dismal performance in the poll, Vice President Mike Pence dodged questions regarding the poll results during his call with reporters on Wednesday afternoon. Pence further added - "The only poll that I believe in is the one that will happen on November 3rd," explaining that Trump had a lead in some of the polls before the general election in 2016. The poll results show the hard work done by the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee to win support from the voters of Pennsylvania. He acted upon his local roots as a native of Scranton, Pennsylvania, on his campaign visit to his childhood home last week. As a part of his campaign, Biden spoke in the towns of Pennsylvania like Darby, Dunmore, and Lancaster in June. Ignoring the Monmouth University poll results, President Trump touted his Republican approval ratings, claiming that he has 96 percent of support in his own party.
However, the Monmouth poll had different findings; 93% of the Democrats in Pennsylvania supported Biden, whereas only 84% of Republicans favored Trump. Among independent voters of the state, Biden has a substantial 21-point margin over Trump with 54% to 33% for the President. The director of Monmouth University Polling Institute, Patrick Murray, said - "Despite considering the polling errors from four years, Biden is clearly performing well in swing areas. Biden has his roots in this region, which may be helping him in the polls, but there is surely a drop in the President's support compared to his 2016 campaign." As per the poll, Biden is also a favorite for younger respondents and 65 and older. Biden is cashing on the support, with Trump's continuous attacks on the Black Lives Matter movement. Biden scored 76% of support to that of Trump's 16 percent among Black, Hispanic, Asian, and other racial group voters. The Monmouth University poll was done between July 9 and 13th over a phone call with 401 registered voters of Pennsylvania state. Their error margin is plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.Dr. Dhillon Randeep
