Biden beats Trump in pre-election polls in the US

Washington, May 5.- Former United States Vice President Joseph Biden today maintains an average of six points of national advantage over President Donald Trump, and leads in key territories such as Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Biden is ahead and by a margin higher than Hillary Clinton on the eve of the 2016 elections, the media reported, numbers would lead us to believe that the Vice President during the term of Barack Obama (2009-2017) has more odds of winning.

However, they warn that there are other polls that ask voters "who will win" and not "who will they vote for on November 3", which yield other results.

In that sense, opinion polls reveal that Trump receives a majority of support in the consideration of voters that he will defeat Biden in the elections, an advantage that persists over time.

A large number of interviewees stated that the current president would be re-elected, in a Fox News poll in February, and the same was found by another from Marist College in September 2019.

But in politics there is nothing written. Trump had a surprising victory four years ago, when everything indicated - particularly the polls - that Clinton would be the first woman president of the United States, observers say.

Trump, they recall, lost the popular vote of three million in 2016 and is the only president in history who has spent his first full term without getting 50% approval, even in the states that elected him.

Now the Covid-19 pandemic raises numerous questions about Trump's erratic handling of an unprecedented health crisis that shattered the economy.

The New York Times suggests that the Trump team knows it cannot win a referendum on its leadership, so they will try to disqualify Biden.

That process began with an extensive campaign, led by the President, regularly questioning the mental acuity and physical resistance of the man he calls "sleepyhead," the newspaper concluded. (PL) (Collage: Internet)
