November’s presidential election is still a few months away, but polls are already starting to give a glimpse into which candidate might do well in certain states.
A brand new Emerson College poll found that President Donald Trump is leading presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in both Texas and Ohio — two critical states that both candidates will be targeting heavily.
Emerson College/Nexstar Media surveyed voters in Ohio, Texas, and California regarding November’s election.
The poll found Trump leading in both Texas and Ohio. Biden, of course, is leading in the far-left state of California.
In Ohio, the poll showed Trump leading Biden 46 percent to 43 percent. It also found that 62 percent — a vast majority — of Ohio voters believe the president will be reelected.
Trump’s lead in Texas is even bigger, with the president leading Biden 47 percent to 41 percent.
In Texas, 61 percent said they believe Trump will win a second term in office.
Unsurprisingly, Biden has a whopping 30 percent lead of Trump in California.
However, the poll found that only 54 percent of California voters think Biden will be able to defeat Trump, a sign that even Democrats are not enthusiastic about Joe’s chances of defeating the president.
Spencer Kimball, Director of Emerson College Polling said the coronavirus has not had any effect on the numbers, which is a good sign for Trump as his administration continues to fight against the virus that originated in China and has taken a toll on America’s economy.
