Rasmussen poll: Trump 48%, Biden 45% in Ohio
November 2, 2020
With one day until Election Day, Rasmussen Reports on Monday released its latest presidential election poll for Ohio, finding incumbent President Donald Trump to be at 48% and former Vice President Joe Biden at 45% among likely voters. This is a three-point jump for President Trump in the Buckeye State from a Rasmussen poll two weeks ago.
While many experts say that the victor of this contentious election will most likely be decided in another Rust-Belt swing state, Pennsylvania, Ohio still remains crucial for Trump keeping his seat at the Resolute desk. In 2016, Trump won Ohio by eight points, with just over 51% of the vote.
It is important to note that over 2.9 million mail-in ballots have already been returned to election clerks as of Monday, the U.S. Elections Project has reported. Rasmussen found that 60% of Ohio voters have already voted.
According to the same survey, Rasmussen found that 3% are voting for a non-major-party candidate and that 4% of likely voters are undecided.
The pollster says that there is a 3.5% margin of error with a 95% level of confidence in the survey conducted between October 31 and November 1 among 800 likely voters in Ohio.
