Biden widens lead over Trump 24 hours to election



Biden leads Trump in critical states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan

Democrat Joe Biden’s lead over U.S. President Donald Trump has widened a little in the final days of the 2020 campaign in three critical Rust Belt states, according to Reuters/Ipsos opinion polls released Sunday.

Trump won those three states narrowly four years ago.

According to the new poll, Biden leads Trump by 10 percentage points in Wisconsin and Michigan, and he is ahead by seven points in Pennsylvania.

Biden has led Trump in all three states in every Reuters/Ipsos weekly poll that began in mid-September.

His leads have ticked higher in the each state over the past two weeks.

Reuters/Ipsos has been polling likely voters in six states – Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, North Carolina, Florida and Arizona – that will play critical roles in deciding whether Trump wins a second term in office or if Biden ousts him.

Below is a state-by-state look at Reuters/Ipsos findings, based on the online responses of likely voters:
