According to the survey, 49 percent say they would vote for Trump compared to 44 percent who said Biden. Of those who said they would support Trump, 37 percent said they “definitely” would, while 35 percent said the same for Biden. Seven percent, overall, remain undecided, which is larger than Trump’s 5-point lead.
Trump takes an even greater lead when Biden is replaced with Vice President Kamala Harris, leading her 51 percent to 40 percent.
