Favorite in terms of voting intentions among minorities and women in the u.s., the democratic candidate Joe Biden has taken an advance of 14 points on Donald Trump in a national survey published Wednesday, a few months before the presidential election.
Joe Biden (50%) enjoys a comfortable lead over his republican rival Donald Trump (36%), according to the survey conducted by the New York Times and Siena College.
The former vice-president of Barack Obama leads widely in polls among women, young people 18 to 34 years of age, and minorities, especially black Americans and hispanics.
The survey also notes that Joe Biden has caught up its delay in the face of Donald Trump among male voters, whites, and senior citizens, which had enabled the republican candidate to win the presidential election in 2016.
Donald Trump has lost many supporters in this electorate who reproached him for his management of the pandemic COVID-19, the economic crisis and his response to protests against racism and police violence that has wracked the country since the death of George Floyd.
Donald Trump, however, remains in the lead among white voters without a degree, who will have a strong influence on the outcome of the election, scheduled for November 3.
These results are however to be taken with caution, the New York Times recalling that in 2016, Hillary Clinton went ahead of Donald Trump in the national surveys, which had not prevented it from losing.
The survey was conducted between 17 and 22 June on a sample of 1337 eligible voters on the electoral lists. The margin of error is plus or minus 3 points.
