Biden’s lead in New York drops to single digits as Trump vows to win state

President Biden’s lead over former President Trump in New York state has narrowed to single digits, according to a Wednesday poll from Siena College.

Biden leads Trump with 47% of the vote. The former president received 38% of the vote. Last month, Biden led Trump 47% to 37%, but that gap has narrowed slightly.

But New York voters remain deeply polarized between the candidates, with 32% of voters saying a Biden victory would cause “irreparable damage to the United States,” while 41% said the same about a Trump victory.

The poll also found that just 18% of voters, including 16% to 19% of Democrats, Republicans, and independents, said they were confident the United States would survive and prosper regardless of the outcome.

The poll came as Trump has spent about a month in trial in Manhattan, giving statements to the press almost daily outside the courtroom. Trump has vowed to win not only his own case, but also the Empire State.
