Here’s the latest news out of Ohio:
Republican President Donald Trump leads Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden for the 2020 election in Ohio, according to a new poll released Monday.
Trump topped Biden by 3 percentage points in the survey from Emerson College, consistent with other Ohio polling, that shows a potentially close race developing in a state once thought firmly in Trump’s corner. The president also posted a slightly positive approval rating.
Emerson College conducted the poll Friday through Sunday via online and robocalling of 725 registered voters from the voter file. The margin of error is plus-or-minus 3.5 percentage points. Results were weighted for gender, age, ethnicity, party, education, region and religion based on the 2016 and 2018 turnout.
In the race for the White House, Trump led Biden 46% to 43%, with 11.4% of voters undecided. Including those leaning toward one candidate, Trump led Biden 51% to 49%.
Now Emerson isn’t the highest ranked poll by FiveThirtyEight’s standards and yes, there is an “enthusiasm gap” between Biden and Trump’s supporters even with all that in mind, it still shows that Ohio is in play and we need to be ready to win it.
