Now the presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee has a nine-point lead over Donald Trump, the President of the United States. This lead is up from a five-point edge in January and is outside the margin of sampling error of the poll. The other eleven percent are not committed.
Biden isn’t just ahead of Trump nationally: Fox News polls released today found him leading Trump in Wisconsin, Arizona, and Ohio, a trio of key states that Trump carried in 2016.
