WISCONSIN — A New Marquette poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris are still leading over President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence in Wisconsin.

Back in September, the poll showed Biden leading by six points. Now, however, it has him leading by five. This comes after the two candidates took part in a Presidential Debate.

According to the poll, among Wisconsin likely voters, 46 percent of voters say they will vote for Biden, 41 percent say they will vote for Trump.

The poll, which was conducted Sept. 30-Oct. 4, also found:

  • A third of respondents say they think Trump has mild symptoms from COVID-19, while slightly more say they don’t yet know how ill he is.
  • Most say they think that in-person campaign rallies should be halted, while a majority think the debates should continue.
  • By a 2-to-1 margin, voters say Biden did a better job in the debate.
  • More people than in September say they are very worried about the risk of getting ill from the coronavirus, and support for requiring masks in public places is slightly higher than in August when last asked.
  • Over a third say they’ve stopped talking about politics with someone, and this varies by political party.

Trump has been confident in his re-election, but Biden holds the advantage in many of the key battleground states at this time.
