According to a poll by The Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas at Tyler, former Vice President Biden would win the elections in that state today with 46% of the votes, for Trump’s 41%
Miami.- Weighed down by the bad image of his management in the coronavirus crisis, the president Donald Trump could lose the biggest conservative stronghold, Texaswhere, according to poll published this Sunday, the virtual Democratic candidate for the White House, Joe Biden, leads him by five points.
According to a survey by The Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas at Tyler’s former vice president Joe Biden He would win the elections in that state today with 46% of the votes, for Trump’s 41%.
With just over 100 days to go until the November 3 elections, the key would be 9% of voters who are still undecided in the state.
In this round of interviews Biden improves with respect to the poll that both entities carried out last April and that showed a tie to 43% of voting intention between the two great candidates.
On this occasion, the interviews were conducted between June 29 and July 7 and the margin of error is plus or minus 2.24 percentage points, so Biden has a slight margin of reassurance.
In recent weeks, after the economy reopened, the number of coronavirus infections has skyrocketed in Texas and the positives exceeded 250,000 this Saturday and the deaths already exceed 3,100.
The voters of Texas They seem to blame Trump for handling the crisis over the pandemic more than Governor Greg Abbot, also a Republican, and that complicates his options in this vital state.
If 48% of Texans approve of how Abbot manages the situation caused by COVID-19, and 40% disapprove, those figures go to 38% in favor and 52% against, respectively, as soon as they Ask for the president, the poll says.
Something better stopped Trump comes out in another poll made in Texas and published this Sunday by the CBS network, which gives the Republican a point of advantage over Biden, although in a poll with a quarter fewer interviewees than that of The Dallas Morning News.
Against this background, the weighted average of the latest surveys carried out by the specialized portal 270ToWin gives Biden a minimal advantage of 0.6 percentage points.
Although Texas the poll CBS is relatively positive for Trump, the president is tied with Biden in Arizona, another state that is traditionally Republican and where since 1948 only one Democrat, Bill Clinton, has won in 1996.
And in Florida, the third state that delivers the most delegates (29), which are the ones that finally elect the president in the electoral college, Biden leads Trump by 6 points (48% vs. 42%) according to the CBS poll.
Of win Texas, where a Democrat has not won since former President Jimmy Carter succeeded in 1976, Biden would greatly complicate the path to Trump’s reelection without the 38 delegates delivered by the so-called Lone Star State, the second most contributing after California.
But if Florida also loses, Trump should win the ten states that, according to polls, are in dispute and also achieve some notable surprise if he wants to repeat in office.
