Biden has the support of half of likely voters — those who say they’re certain to vote. When compared to previous Wisconsin polls this year, one of the standout results is how little voters have changed their minds.
“It really is notable just how stable the vote division is between Biden and Trump despite all the things that have happened over the course of the summer,” said Barry Burden, a UW-Madison political science professor and director of the Elections Research Center. “None of those things seemed to have budged the polls more than a couple of percentage points, and Joe Biden has maintained a very consistent, durable lead over Trump, despite all the turmoil in the environment.”
As with other polls, Trump’s overall job performance remains relatively stable, with 30% of Wisconsin respondents strongly approving the presidents overall job handling. Another 46% strongly disapprove.
