And in a third crucial state, Michigan, a push to begin the counting process several days before the election is dead. Lawmakers there instead chose to give election officials just a 10-hour head-start.

Polster Gallup has found that a majority of 56% of Americans feel that they are better off now under Donald Trump ’s presidency than they were four years ago under Barack Obama and Joe Biden. While the majority is a good sign for Trump , the figure was even higher back in February, before the coronavirus pandemic. Back then, 61% expressed more satisfaction than they had four years previously. Given the current circumstances, it is rather startling to find that more Americans think they are better off now, and betrays how effective Trump ’s presidency has been thus far.

Though such numbers are encouraging for those hoping for Trump 's second term, elections haven't always gone the way one might predict based on how many people said their situation improved. In 2012, 52% of Americans said they were not better off than they had been, making Obama the only recent incumbent to face reelection while most of the country said their personal situation had deteriorated.

According to Gallup's new poll data, nearly half of voters said they agreed with Trump's stances on key policy issues, putting him three points ahead of his Democratic challenger Joe Biden.

But Americans were also more likely to feel that Biden had presidential qualities lacking in Trump. Forty-nine percent said that the former vice president had presidential traits, while only 44 percent said the same of Trump.

Gallup surveyed more than 900 registered voters between September 14 and September 28 for its latest poll. Its margin of error stands at four percentage points.

Although most U.S. voters feel they are better off after four years of a Trump presidency, the Gallup poll's findings are not reflected in the president's head-to-head numbers against Biden.

The FiveThirtyEight national poll tracker has shown the Democratic nominee's average lead over Trump growing since the start of this month—up from eight percentage points to around 9.5 percentage points at the time of writing.

According to the weighted average, a little more than half of Americans (51.9 percent) intend to vote for Biden on November 3, while 42.2 percent say they will backing Trump for a second term in the Oval Office.

One tracking poll published by USC Dornsife found that 53 percent of 5,114 surveyed voters intended to vote for Biden as of Wednesday. By comparison, a little over 42 percent said they would be voting for Trump.

Another survey from YouGov showed Biden nine points ahead of Trump among more than 1,300 likely voters.
