"Biden remains ahead in our poll and is capturing the segment of undecided voters who are more likely to vote, giving him a five-point lead in the horserace," Dritan Nesho, lead pollster at HarrisX, told Hill.TV.

"Biden's strength is coming from suburban voters, in particular women and retirees, who have moved away from Trump and do not support him to the same extent as they did in 2016," Nesho added.

The Hill-HarrisX poll was conducted online among 2,824 registered voters and among 2,359 likely voters. It has a margin of error of 1.85 percentage points and 2 percentage points.
