The poll covered a wide range of topics beyond just the two men running for office (the survey was conducted before Biden had announced Kamala Harris as his running mate). For example, in addition to asking about which candidate they support and whether they view each man favorably or unfavorably, the poll also delved into topics such as the coronavirus pandemic and vaccinations.
On the main topic, that of whom the poll respondents intend to vote for, 53 percent of likely voters said that they intend to vote for Biden, while 42 percent support Trump. That’s an 11-point difference; by comparison, Biden’s lead over Trump was eight points in June.
Broken down by different demographic groups, Biden also has strong advantages with Black voters, young voters, whites with a college degree and suburban voters.
