Poll: Trump, Biden tied in Georgia

Both candidates are polling at 45 percent according to the New York Times-Siena College survey, no change since the same survey was conducted last month.

Trump’s weakness among white, college-educated voters is a problem in the Peach State. The Times notes he currently has support from 52 percent of this demographic while Biden has 40 percent.


Eighty-one percent of Black Georgia voters said they would go for Biden while only 9 percent said they would go for Trump.

Black voters are expected to account for 29 percent of the electorate this year, more than in the 2016 or 2018 elections, though still less than in the 2008 and 2012 elections.

Some 759 likely Georgia voters were surveyed from Oct. 13 to 19, and the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 points.
