Former Vice President Joe Biden has an 8-point advantage over President Donald Trump in the state of Wisconsin, according to a new poll.
A Rasmussen Reports poll indicates likely voters in the swing state are backing Biden over Trump.
Poll results show:
- 51% of Wisconsin likely voters say they back Biden for president.
- 43% of Wisconsin likely voters say they will reelect Trump.
- 93% of Wisconsin Democrats say they will vote for Biden.
- 90% of Wisconsin Republicans say they will support Trump.
Of the 84% of Wisconsin voters who reported that they are certain who they will vote for, 54% support Biden and 46% support Trump.
Biden also leads Trump when it comes to women, voters under 40 and senior citizens, according to the poll results. Biden has the support of 69% of Black voters in the state.
Biden’s lead comes after ongoing protests and unrest have taken over the city of Kenosha following the police-involved shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man. The poll was conducted as Trump visited the state amid the protests.
The poll surveyed 1,000 likely voters in Wisconsin between Sept. 1-2. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
