The survey, which was conducted by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal, was taken between Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 and covered 800 registered voters. It had a margin of error of around 3.5 percent.
The results showed 53 percent of respondents said they’d vote for the former vice president, compared to 39 percent for Trump.
The president has maintained, however, that polling and pundit analysis of his White House chances contain overt bias and was part of the reason why he defeated Hillary Clinton, despite most experts’ predictions to the contrary.
The poll was also taken before the announcement about Trump testing positive for COVID-19.
