Poll: Trump Trails Biden by 6 Points Nationally
TEHRAN (FNA)- President Donald Trump trails Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden by 6 percentage points in a new Hill-HarrisX national poll less than 50 days away from Election Day.

Forty-five percent of registered voters in the September 10-14 survey said they would choose Biden if the election were held today, a 2 percentage point decrease from the previous poll conducted earlier this month, The Hill reported.

By contrast, 39 percent of voters said they'd cast their ballots for Trump, no change from the last survey.

Four percent of voters said they'd prefer someone else as their presidential candidate, a 1 percentage point dip, while another 4 percent said they do not plan to vote.

Eight percent of voters said they were still unsure, a 1 percentage point tick up.

The survey found Biden's lead among senior voters, ages 65 and older, fell 9 percentage points, from a 10 point lead in the September 5-8 poll to a 1 point lead in this most recent study.
