The poll conducted on September 11-15, published on Wednesday, shows that 50% of the probable voters stated that they will vote with Biden, and 31% with Trump. Another 3% said they would support another candidate, and the rest are undecided.
Most voters are determined with whom they will vote. 9 out of 10 voters for Biden and 8 out of 10 of Trump’s voters said they were “completely sure” of their choice for president. Only 1 in 10 likely Biden voters and less than 2 in 10 in Trump’s case seemed to be thinking.
The poll suggests Biden has an early advantage in securing the popular vote in the Nov. 3 presidential election. However, 9% of likely voters are undecided or have not yet supported a major party candidate. Their decision in the coming weeks could determine who wins.
Winning the popular vote does not necessarily mean winning the election, which is decided by the Electoral College system. Trump won in 2016 even though he lost the popular vote.
According to the survey, only 11% of whites in the suburbs said that the most important factor influencing the vote is the interest in a firm stand against crime and social unrest.
The percentage dropped from 13% in a similar survey conducted between September 9-10 and 15% in a survey from September 3-8.
In contrast, whites in the suburbs, like the rest of the Americans, are most interested in the new coronavirus, which has so far killed 195,000 people in the United States, more than in any other country in the world.
Asked what is the most important factor influencing their vote, 27% of whites in the suburbs said they want a candidate with a solid plan to manage the new coronavirus, and 25% want someone to restore confidence in the US government. Another 19% said they wanted a strong president in terms of the economy and jobs.
Trumo plans to spend $ 10 million on commercials focused on the economy, where it maintains a high level of popularity.
According to the poll, 45% of American adults consider Trump to be a better candidate for rebuilding the economy, compared to 36% in the Biden case.
Overall, the coronavirus is the main cause for concern, and the restoration of confidence in the second government.
The Reuters / Ipsos poll was conducted online in English at the national level. 1,358 American adults were interviewed, including 859 likely voters. The survey has a margin of error of about 4%.
