The Elections Research Center conducted surveys in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin between October 13 through 21, 2020. The survey asked respondents about the most important issue facing the country, opinions about Trump, campaign contact, and the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett.
The survey reveals that Biden has extended his leads over President Trump in the three key battleground states. The difference from our previous poll in September is that a larger share of undecided and potential minor party voters has come to support Biden.
Biden has a massive lead among those who have already voted. Although Trump is favored by those who are yet to vote, the margin is not large enough to compensate for Biden’s advantage in the early vote.
When asked about the most important issue facing the country, likely voters identify the coronavirus as the most important issue facing the country. The nomination of Amy Coney Barrett for an opening on the U.S. Supreme Court has not raised the prominence of the court or abortion much.
