The race for the presidency is near even in North Carolina and Democratic nominee Joe Biden holds a lead over President Donald Trump in Wisconsin, according to new CNN polls conducted by SSRS in the battleground states.
Among likely voters in North Carolina, 49% support Biden, 46% Trump. In Wisconsin, likely voters break 52% for Biden to 42% for Trump.
The polls were conducted entirely after the release of excepts from Bob Woodward’s latest book on Trump, as well as the release of tapes Woodward recorded of the President admitting early on in the pandemic that Covid-19 was more deadly than he was letting on publicly.
