Biden's Lead Grows in Virginia, According to Christopher Newport Poll

Latest university poll offered surprising data, as some older voters step away from Trump.

NEWPORT NEWS-Joe Bidenís lead keeps growing in Virginia. Thursdayís poll from Christopher Newport University put the Democratic nominee ahead of President Trump 48% to 43% among likely voters. When the discussion shifts to enthusiastic voters, Bidenís lead stretches farther, 51% to 43%.

ďLittle chance Trump wins Virginia in 2020, as voters seem locked in,Ē Quentin Kidd said in a statement. Kidd, who serves as academic director for the Wason Center for Public Policy at CNU, pointed out Hillary Clinton won Virginia by 5 points in 2016. Bidenís campaign appears to be following similar trends in the commonwealth.

The numbers show Bidenís campaign gaining ground across the board. Among women he holds a 27% advantage, beating Trump 61% to 34%. The point that surprised university pollsters was the fact Biden and Trump are at a draw when it comes to voters 45 and older. In the poll analysis, Wason Center officials pointed out that group has been Trumpís base in the past. Now, they donít seem as interested. When it comes to the younger demographic, Biden wins there too. He currently holds a 56% to 38% lead over Trump and 66% to 30% when talking with college-educated voters. The Black community also show strong support for Biden in this poll. Black voters chose Biden by a 75% to 14% margin over Trump.
