Skip to comments.Biden holds 3-point edge over Trump in White House race: poll
Posted on 03/24/2020 10:06:02 AM PDT by sodpoodle
A new national poll points to an extremely close contest between President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden as the race for the White House shifts to a likely general election battle between the two.
According to the poll, the president enjoys a nearly 2-to-1 margin over Biden in the 2,500 solidly red counties that Trump overwhelming won four years ago over 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. In the 360 solidly blue counties where Clinton crushed Trump, Biden is up by a 2-to-1 margin. But in the approximately 300 swing counties where the margins in the 2016 presidential election were 10 points or less, Biden tops Trump 50-41 percent.
The race looks tight right now between Trump and the probable Democratic nominee. But as we learned in 2016, the outcome will be determined by the Electoral College rather than the national popular vote. The poll results suggest Biden may actually be starting out with an advantage in crucial swing areas of the country, Monmouth University Polling Institute Director Patrick Murray said in a statement.
THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN
As expected, theres a wide partisan divide, with Democrats backing Biden 89-6 percent and Republicans behind the president 90-7 percent. Independents are nearly dead even, with 45 percent for Trump and 44 percent for the former vice president.
Biden leads 56-34 percent among voters under age 35, Trump has a 53-40 lead among those 35 to 54 and Biden has a slight 4-point advantage among voters 55 and older.

What a joke!!!!!!!
National polls are POINTLESS. We elect our POTUS with 51 elections, not one.
Hahaha. In their dreams.
Oh they’re starting already?
Biden Will Win With 95% of the Vote!
Monmouth is heavily lean left, means Trump is probably up by +3.
“among registered voters”
Polls in a pandemic? A complete waste of money.
This is funny..
Its the electoral College that matters. If a disproportionate number of Bidens votes are in CA and NY then hes a loser.
Which Washington,D.C. gay bath house did they poll?
3 points is it for a challenger?
That is nothing
Usually the challenger starts off high and then the lead vaporizes as the election gets closer.
This isn’t even a lead, its the margin of error
Its over before it even got started
Sleepy Joe should just go back to the nursing home.
764 illegals more likely
WHO the HELL are they POLLING???? Most Americans are not as smart anymore!
Fox has lost all credibility. Yeah I know, long ago, but they keep proving the point...
The November election will be seen as a national IQ test. If, God forbid, the country is so beyond stupid to elect Biden over Trump, its not worth the trouble anyway.
Exactly how does sampling work for all those counties when you didn't sample all those counties. And we know how good polls are with registered voters. Nice try.
“I hold a three point, or is it five point lead over my opponent Senator Bush. That’s, uh, Bush, is it? Oh, Trump, Richard Trump! He is not worthy of the honor of being in the Senate! Vote for me for good things and bending the curve downwards!”
Even Joe knows this is BS.
Biden will be like Hillary. His poll numbers go up when you do not see him
