With nearly a week to go until Election Day, this weekend’s Sunday talk shows are expected to focus on the final efforts from the campaigns of President TrumpDonald TrumpBiden prepares to confront Putin Biden aims to bolster troubled Turkey ties in first Erdoğan meeting Senate investigation of insurrection falls short MORE and Democratic nominee Joe BidenJoe BidenBiden prepares to confront Putin Ukrainian president thanks G-7 nations for statement of support Biden aims to bolster troubled Turkey ties in first Erdoğan meeting MORE as they attempt to sway last minute voters in key swing states. 

Recent national polling shows Biden has maintained a comfortable lead over Trump.

A new Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday placed the former vice president 10 points ahead of Trump, and this week’s national polling average from RealClearPolitics has Biden leading Trump by approximately 8 percentage points nationally. 

However, polling indicates that the race is much closer in several battleground states that could decide the election including Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania. 

In the final days of the campaign, Biden is expected to focus on holding Trump accountable for the coronavirus pandemic, while also calling for a unified nation. 

“He’ll pose the question, ‘Do you want another four years of this?’” one ally close to the campaign told The Hill on Saturday. “He’ll continue to draw a contrast of how the presidency should be and what this presidency has been."

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign plans to rally his supporters with a busy schedule in the final week before the election, with events lined up in North Carolina, Wisconsin and Ohio on Saturday alone. 

While Democrats currently hold a lead in the number of mail-in ballots sent in ahead of Election Day, the Trump campaign has indicated that they expect high voter turnout in support of Trump on Nov. 3.
