CBS Poll: Biden Leads in Battlegrounds Wisconsin, Pennsylvania

CBS Poll: Biden Leads in Battlegrounds Wisconsin, Pennsylvania

Sunday, 09 August 2020 11:55 AM

Democratic nominee Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, two states won by the Republican in 2016 on the way to the White House, according to a CBS poll.

Biden is up six points in each state, 48% to 42% in Wisconsin and 49% to 43% in Pennsylvania, the poll showed.

By a wide margin, voters surveyed said things in America are going “badly,” and Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic was a major issue. About two thirds of voters reported disliking how Trump “handles himself personally.”

Days before Biden is expected to announce his choice of running mate, a majority of voters suggested the pick was “not at all” or “not very” important to them.

The surveys were conducted Aug. 4-7 for CBS by YouGov and were based on representative samples of 1,009 registered voters in Wisconsin and 1,225 in Pennsylvania. The margins of error were plus or minus 3.7 percentage points in each poll.

The RealClearPolitics average of polls for Wisconsin, including the latest CBS reading, shows Biden up 5.2 points. In Pennsylvania, Biden is up by 5 points, according to the RealClearPolitics average.
