Democratic candidate has 53% of voting intentions for November, while presidential support for re-election has dropped to 39%
The Democratic Party candidate extended his advantage over President Donald Trump eight to 14 percentage points in a vote-intent poll carried out after the first debate with a view to the November 3 elections in the United States.
According to the poll commissioned by NBC News in conjunction with the Wall Street Journal and released on Sunday, Biden rose 51% to 53% compared to the previous edition of the survey. Trump, in turn, fell 43% to 39%.
This is the biggest advantage in favor of the Democratic candidacy since the first edition of the NBC / WSJ poll, in July last year.
The poll involved only registered voters to vote in November and was conducted on September 30 and October 1 - that is, after last Tuesday's debate, but before the revelation that Trump was infected with the new coronavirus.
The margin of error is 3.46% more or less.
