Fact check: Viral video of Joe Biden on running for Senate is missing context

  Fact check: Viral video of Joe Biden on running for Senate is missing context A viral Facebook video claiming Joe Biden said he was running for Senate has been altered and leaves out key words. We rate it missing context.A viral 12-second clip on Facebook is now being used to claim that the former vice president got confused about which office he was seeking in the 2020 election.

Former Vice President Joe Biden holds a narrow lead over President Trump in Florida, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll, the latest to show the Democratic presidential nominee with a slight advantage in the nation's largest swing state.

With five days to go until Election Day, Biden has the support of 45 percent of likely voters in the Sunshine State, while Trump notches 42 percent support. Another 11 percent of respondents said they are either undecided or declined to name their preference.

Biden holds an 18-point lead over Trump among independents, who made up about a third of the state's electorate in 2016 when they broke for Trump over then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Biden also leads Trump with Black voters 71 to 9 percent, according to the Quinnipiac poll.

Dancing With the Stars Reveals the Top 10

  Dancing With the Stars Reveals the Top 10 Dancing With the Stars eliminated another dancer and revealed its top 10, but something just feels off this season.As we keep saying each week, the leaderboard is all over the place and it's getting real weird. Last week, Johnny Weir got the top score of the season with two 10s. This week, he had the third lowest score of the night and ended up in the bottom two alongside the second lowest scorer, Vernon Davis, who was sent home. Meanwhile at the head of the pack, there was a four-way tie for first place.

But unlike other battleground states, where Biden has amassed a sizable lead among white college graduates, he carries only a 4-point advantage with those voters in Florida.

Biden's support among Hispanic voters in Florida is also somewhat softer than that of Clinton, who carried those voters 62 to 35 percent four years ago. Biden now leads Trump with Hispanic voters 50 to 34 percent, according to the Quinnipiac poll.

Florida is among the biggest Election Day prizes, with 29 electoral votes up for grabs. It's also a must-win state for Trump, who carried it in 2016 by only 113,000 votes, or about 1 percentage point.

A win for Biden in Florida would deal a devastating blow to the president's chances of winning a second term and could portend deeper losses for Trump in other key battleground states.

In a show of the importance the campaigns have placed on Florida, both Trump and Biden campaigned in the state on Thursday.

The Quinnipiac poll surveyed 1,324 likely voters in Florida from Oct. 23-27. It has a margin of sampling error of +/-2.7 percentage points.

Polling averages show Trump gaining on Biden in most swing states. Will it be enough? .
Trump gained on Biden in polling average in 9 of 12 swing states since Monday, continuing last week's trend. But of those, he is only ahead in Texas.The deadline for early voting ends Friday in several states where the race is tight, including Arizona, Georgia, Nevada and Texas – and on Saturday in the key states of Florida and North Carolina. Though early turnout appears to favor Democrats in many states, Republicans are gaining ground quickly in Florida and other early voting states.
