WASHINGTON – Just weeks before Election Day, former Vice President Joe Biden is leading President Donald Trump by seven points in the battleground state of Minnesota, according to a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University poll.
The poll released Friday shows 47% of likely voters support Biden, while 40% support Trump in a state that has been reliably held by Democrats since 1972 but where the president is hoping to compete. Another 6% of respondents were undecided.
Minnesotans chose Hillary Clinton for president in 2016 by a 1.5% margin over Trump, who has campaigned several times this cycle in the Gopher State. Both Trump and Biden have taken their campaigns there to battle for working-class voters as early voting began earlier this month.
Likely voters have a more favorable view of Biden, according to the poll. Forty-seven percent said they view Biden favorably, while 42% view him unfavorably. That's compared to Trump, who is underwater and viewed favorably by 41% and unfavorably by 53% of respondents.
The USA TODAY/Suffolk poll surveyed a total of 500 likely voters via cell phone and landlines between Sept. 20 and Sept. 24. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.
