Biden holds 6-point lead over Trump in Wisconsin: poll

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is leading President Trump in the critical swing state of Wisconsin less than 50 days away from Election Day, according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll released Wednesday. 

Fifty-two percent of likely Wisconsin voters said they supported Biden, while 46 percent said they supported Trump. Among the wider pool of registered voters in the state, Biden leads Trump 50 percent to 46 percent. 

Wisconsin is one of a number of must-win states for Trump, who flipped the state in the 2016 presidential election. Trump narrowly won the state with roughly 47 percent of the vote, while then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton garnered 46 percent of the vote. 

The RealClearPolitics polling average shows Biden leading in Wisconsin by 6.7 points. 

Other recent polls have shown Biden head in the Badger State. A CNN survey released Tuesday showed the former vice president leading with 52 percent of likely Wisconsin voters, while Trump trailed with 42 percent support. 

The survey comes as Trump faces backlash across the U.S. for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. The U.S. is one of the worst impacted countries, with over 6.6 million known positive cases and more than 195,000 deaths. 

Forty-nine percent of voters in the state said they trusted Biden to handle the pandemic, while 42 percent said they trusted Trump, according to the Washington Post/ABC News poll. 

The survey was conducted Sept. 8-13 among 702 Wisconsin registered voters, including 605 likely voters in the state. The poll’s margin of error is 4.5 points.
