POLLS: Biden opens up 8 point lead in Wisconsin, edges Trump in Ohio

A new Wisconsin poll from Marquette has Biden opening up a 8 point lead over Trump in the critical swing state.

New Marquette Law School Poll finds Biden widening his lead over Trump in WI. Results put Biden at 49%, Trump at 41%. In early May, it was Biden 46%, Trump 43%.

Per Fox News, Biden tops the president 49-41 percent among registered voters in Wisconsin, according to a Marquette Law School poll released on Wednesday.

And the former vice president edges Trump 46-45 percent in Ohio in a Quinnipiac University poll also out on Wednesday. Biden’s 1-point advantage is well within the survey’s sampling error.

The release of the two surveys comes four and a half months before the November general election, which is an eternity in campaign politics.

Biden’s 8-point lead in the Marquette poll is up from a 3-point edge in the previous survey, which was conducted last month.

The betting markets of PredictIt also currently strongly favor Biden.
