• Biden hold 13-point lead over Trump in Florida

Joe Biden is leading Donald Trump in Florida by 13 percentage points, the presumptive Democratic nominee’s largest margin over the president in a top battleground state four months out from the 2020 presidential election, a new poll finds.

Citizens in Florida prefers Biden to Trump

The new poll released by Quinnipiac University on Thursday found Biden capturing a majority of registered voters and easily leading Trump, 51-38%.  Joe Biden got a major bump in support since the last Quinnipiac Florida survey conducted in April when he only led by a 4-point margin.

Biden holds an even stronger lead among independent voters, 48-32%, that has also grown since the April poll. The former vice president also narrowly leads among voters who are age 65 and older, a pivotal group in Florida that typically leans more in favor of Republicans. Most recent public polling in Florida has shown Biden with a single-digit margin, but this poll comes at a time when the state is grappling with a surge in coronavirus cases and deaths.

“The president doesn’t escape the shifting moods and concerns of voters in Florida. His sagging numbers are a gut punch from one of the key states he keenly hopes to win,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.

Joe Biden outperforms Trump on most issues with the exception of the economy. Registered voters believe the former vice president can better handle a crisis, health care, the response to the pandemic and addressing racial inequality. But voters narrowly believe Trump can navigate the economy better than a Biden White House, 50-47%.
