Biden leading ​Trump in latest US national polls

The latest polling average puts Biden ahead of Trump nationally. If the election was held today, the latest polls would suggest this outcome in the electoral college.

Iran Press/America: With weeks to go before the US presidential election, former vice-president Joe Biden, the Democratic party’s nominee, is currently polling ahead of incumbent Republican President Donald Trump in key battleground states, though he has seen his lead narrow in some states since the summer, Financial Times latest national polls show. 

While the national poll tracker is a poor indicator of how the crucial swing states will sway the election, a strong polling lead across the country can point to how the race will develop.

National polls show Biden at a significant advantage. White seniors, in particular, a group that helped propel Trump to victory in 2016, have shown signs of disapproval towards the president's handling of the pandemic.

Biden holds a substantial lead among Latino voters, a growing demographic in swing states like Arizona and Florida, but some polls suggest he is less popular with Latino voters than either Barack Obama in 2012 or Hillary Clinton in 2016.

On Tuesday, 3 November 2020, Americans will vote for their next president, with a choice between ​Donald Trump, the Republican incumbent, or his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden.

Joe Biden and Donald Trump each need 270 electoral votes to win the presidency. Most states are leaning or solidly in favor of one candidate, but the race is too close to call in some states.
