JOE Biden is maintaining his national poll lead over President Donald Trump with an 8 point lead in a new USA Today poll and Trump still struggling with his national approval rating.
The same USA Today poll that has Biden leading Trump 52-44 has the president’s approval rating at an awful 44 to 53 rating.
In the latest Gallup survey, Trump’s approval is at 46, with 52 per cent disapproval. His approval hasn’t hit 49 per cent in the survey since January.
A new New York Times / Siena survey has Biden edging Trump 48-45 in North Carolina, a state Trump carried in 2016 where Biden has assembled a narrow polling lead in a state considered a tossup.
The Supreme Court ruled that both North Carolina and Pennsylvania can count ballots postmarked by Election Day that come in later. In the case of North Carolina, they can be counted up until November 12. Democrats have been pushing mail-in voting, but the state also has many military members, some of whose mail ballots could go Trump’s way.
With Trump boxed out in many states and Biden having multiple paths to 270 electoral votes, Trump’s campaign still hopes to win Minnesota out of the Democratic column after coming close there in 2016.
