Poll: Lead among women fuels Biden’s 12-point edge

According to the poll, Trump leads by 26 points among white voters without four-year college degrees, but Biden holds a 31-point lead with white college graduates.

The poll was conducted after the president disclosed his Covid-19 diagnosis. On questions dealing with the pandemic, 65 percent said Trump did not take appropriate precautions to reduce the chances of catching the coronavirus, and 6 in 10 say they do not trust the administration to provide complete and accurate information about his health. A total of 55 percent said they trusted Biden more than Trump when it came to handling the pandemic.

The Washington Post-ABC News poll was conducted by telephone Oct. 6-9 among a national sample of 1,014 adults, including 879 registered voters and 725 likely voters. Results among adults and registered voters have a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points; the error margin is 4 points among likely voters.

Also Sunday, the latest CBS News Battleground Tracker polls showed Biden leading Trump in Michigan and Nevada by identical 6-point margins, 52-46. A third poll showed the two candidates tied in Iowa at 49 percent. Trump won Michigan and Iowa in 2016.
