Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is leading President Trump by 10 points nationally, according to a new poll.
More than half of likely voters, 52 percent, said they would cast their ballots for Biden, and 42 percent said they would support Trump, according to a CBS News-YouGov poll released Sunday. The poll found 3 percent said they are “not sure” who they would vote for, and 3 percent said they would vote for someone else.
Much of Biden’s support comes from likely voters who are opposed to Trump. Forty-nine percent of likely Biden supporters said the main reason for their vote in November is “mainly to oppose” Trump, while 32 percent said it is “mainly because” they like the former vice president.
Trump’s support, however, is overwhelmingly driven by voters’ feelings toward the president, with 73 percent of his supporters saying their vote is “mainly because” they like Trump and just 18 percent saying it is “mainly to oppose” Biden.
