Still, the polls suggest a much tighter race in two states that Trump carried four years ago by sizable margins.
Winning Texas may be more of a stretch for Biden. Most recent polls show him trailing Trump there, and voters in the state haven't gone for a Democrat in a presidential election since 1976.
Ohio, however, has a history of swinging in presidential years. Former President Obama won the state in both 2008 and 2012 before it flipped to Trump in 2016.
Mary Snow, a polling analyst at Quinnipiac University, said that who wins the state could very well come down to a small number of voters who say they could still change their mind before Election Day.
Anthony Scaramucci says first presidential debate was an 'embarrassment' to the U.S.
"I don't think anybody won," said Scaramucci, a hedge fund investor who briefly served as Trump's White House communications chief. © Provided by CNBC Anthony Scaramucci, founder and managing partner of Skybridge Capital, served briefly as White House communications director in 2017.

"With six weeks to go until Election Day and most minds made up, Ohio could hinge on a sliver of likely voters who signal they may have a change of heart and the four percent who say they are unsure right now who they'll back," Snow said. "At this point, it's a toss-up."
In Texas's contested Senate race, Sen. John Cornyn (R) holds a solid lead over Democratic challenger M.J. Hegar, garnering 50 percent support to her 42 percent.
Both candidates have net positive favorability ratings among Texas voters. Thirty-nine percent of respondents reported a positive opinion of Cornyn, compared to 30 percent who said they view him unfavorably. Hegar was also more popular than not among voters who had heard of her, notching a 29 percent favorable to 19 percent unfavorable.
Still, many voters said they did not know enough about the candidates to form an opinion. Thirty-percent of respondents said they had not heard enough about Cornyn, while 50 percent said they did not know enough about Hegar.
The Quinnipiac University polls surveyed 1,085 likely voters in Ohio and 1,078 likely voters in Texas from Sept. 17 to 21. The margin of sampling error for both states is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
