Biden Trails Trump in Critical Swing States

WASHINGTON, DC ( - Democratic President Joe Biden trails Republican front runner Donald Trump in five of the six most important battleground states exactly a year before the U.S. election as Americans express doubts about Biden's age and dissatisfaction toward his handling of the economy, polls released on Sunday showed, as reported by Reuters.

The New York Times and Siena College conducted the recent poll.

The poll shows that Trump is ahead in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania, with Biden ahead in Wisconsin.

Trump now leads by an average of 48% to 44% in the six states, the polls showed.

"Predictions more than a year out tend to look a little different a year later. Don't take our word for it: Gallup predicted an 8 point loss for President Obama only for him to win handedly a year later," Biden campaign spokesperson Kevin Munoz said in a statement, referring to Democrat Barack Obama's 2012 victory over Republican Mitt Romney.

Munoz added that Biden's campaign "is hard at work reaching and mobilizing our diverse, winning coalition of voters one year out on the choice between our winning, popular agenda and MAGA (Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan) Republicans' unpopular extremism. We'll win in 2024 by putting our heads down and doing the work, not by fretting about a poll."

A YouGov poll conducted October 30 through November 3 showed Trump up 3 points on Biden. 

BetOnline currently had the Democrats as a -110 to take the White House and Republicans at EVEN odds.
