The week in polls: Trump erases Biden's bounce in Florida, Biden gains in Georgia

  The week in polls: Trump erases Biden's bounce in Florida, Biden gains in Georgia In the Senate, a poll found Doug Jones may not be doomed after all. And another found Lindsey Graham's race may not be as tight as believed.They have found Biden still holding a commanding lead nationally (though down slightly from last week) and leading in 10 of 12 swing states. But Trump regained a slight polling average lead in Ohio and ate a big chunk out of Biden's leads in Pennsylvania and Minnesota. Trump also erased Biden's gains in Florida from last week, which some Democrats had hoped signaled their nominee was pulling away in the crucial Sunshine State.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has maintained his single-digit advantage over President Donald Trump in Nevada, according to a new survey of the Western swing state.

A New York Times/Siena College poll released Tuesday — a week from Election Day — reports that 49 percent of Nevada likely voters prefer Biden, while 43 percent favor Trump.

Biden’s lead is unchanged from the previous version of the Times/Siena Nevada poll published earlier this month, which also showed him ahead of Trump by 6 percentage points, 48-42 percent.

Another Times/Siena Nevada poll published last month showed Biden leading Trump by 4 percentage points, 46-42 percent. The RealClearPolitics average of recent Nevada surveys, conducted from Sept. 20-Oct. 11, has Biden with an edge of 5.2 percentage points over Trump.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton won Nevada’s six electoral votes by 2.4 percentage points in 2016.

Trump is now working to flip Nevada as Biden gains ground in Midwestern swing states and some Southern battlegrounds that the Republican captured four years ago. Nevada has toggled between supporting presidential nominees of both major parties in past election cycles — backing Republican George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, and Democrat Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012.

The latest Times/Siena poll was conducted Oct. 23-26, surveying 809 Nevada likely voters with a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.

The final week in polls: Trump eats into Biden's leads in Arizona, North Carolina, Nevada and Pennsylvania .
The final polls show the race between Trump and Biden has tightened since mid-October, both nationally and in the critical battleground states.Biden's lead in USA TODAY's average of averages, which is based on data from RealClearPolitics and FiveThirtyEight, reached double-digits on Oct. 12, but has since fallen back to a 7.5-percentage point lead. That leaves him back roughly in the same position USA TODAY found him in its first poll roundup on Sept. 28, when his polling average lead over Trump was 7.2 points.
