Former vice president Joe Biden is slowly and gradually strengthening his lead in the nationwide polls against President Donald Trump. In the latest polls by Fox News released on Thursday, Biden is leading in the battleground states of Ohio, Nevada, and Pennsylvania. All the three states combinedly have 44 electoral votes. Biden holds an 11-point lead against President Trump in Nevada, among likely voters. More than half, Fifty-two percent of the voters wish to have the Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as their next President, compared to just 41 percent of them supporting Trump. In 2016, Trump narrowly lost the state of Nevada to the then-Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Trump would definitely want to close the narrow margin and win the Nevada state this time.
Biden has fifty percent or more support in all the three states, which is a significant plus point for his campaign. Coming to Ohio, 50 percent of the voters supported Biden, and only 45 percent went for Trump. In the other critical state of Pennsylvania, 51 percent of the respondents voted for Joe Biden compared to 44 percent support for Trump. In comparison, President Trump has won both Ohio and Pennsylvania in 2016, which proved to be critical for his electoral win against Hillary Clinton. He would want to repeat the same this time against Joe Biden, but the polls reveal a different story altogether. A poll on the next Supreme Court justice nomination showed that most voters in Nevada and Pennsylvania have higher confidence in Biden to choose the next Supreme Court Justice than Trump, who announced that he would be selecting his nominee this Saturday.
Miffed with the low polling numbers, Trump recently attacked Fox News polls for showing Biden’s lead in key swing states. He called the pollsters from Fox News as “incompetent” in his interview with Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade. He further added, “they don’t like me. I can tell you that the worst poll is usually Fox.” The polls took place between September 20th to 23rd, with a sample size of 800 random likely voters in each of the three states separately. The error margin of the poll is plus or minus three percentage points in each state.
