PAF in Newsweek: Joe Biden Beats Donald Trump in Three Polls in One Week

A new poll has suggested President Joe Biden will beat Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election, the third poll to make the prediction in the last week.

A Biden and Trump rematch was confirmed last week after the two politicians both passed the nomination threshold, having won multiple presidential primaries.

Since then, interest has turned to which candidate will win the general election, with pollsters making various predictions regarding the outcome of November’s ballot.

According to a national survey by the Democratic super PAC Progress Action fund, conducted by Public Policy Polling and reported by The Hill, Biden is leading Trump by 46 to 45 percent. The margin of error is +/- 3.5 percentage points, meaning the two politicians are statistically tied.

Meanwhile, in two other polls released in the last week, it appears Biden might marginally beat his rival. One Reuters/Ipsos poll of 3,356 registered voters found Biden would get 39 percent of the vote while Trump would get 38 percent. It was conducted between March 7 and 13 and the margin of error is +/- 1.8 percentage points.
