Cheddar Poll: Biden Leads Trump as COVID Edges Economy as Voters' Top Issue
Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump by 10 points in a head-to-head match-up, according to a new Cheddar/SurveyUSA poll. Among likely voters, 53 percent say Biden is their top choice compared to 43 percent for Trump. This mirrors Cheddar's polling from three weeks ago that showed the same support. The former vice president boasts of having a diverse coalition of voters that support him. While Biden is not growing his polling lead, he is growing support among key groups. Women voters are backing Biden by 18 points, nominally more than chose him in previous polling. One area where the president does see a silver lining is among Hispanic voters. While Biden still enjoys a majority of those voters, 53 percent to 40 percent for Trump, the president has made major inroads among this group in the past four years. In 2016, exit polls show he won 29 percent of Hispanic voters compared to 65 percent for Hillary Clinton. This year, Latinos make up the largest group of eligible voters of color, overtaking Black voters for the first time, according to Pew Research Center.
