PRES (Lean Republican): A new poll from Democrat-leaning Public Policy Polling (PDF) finds President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden tied, 48%-48%, among registered voters. Trump’s job performance rating is 47/48.

Trump leads among men, 49%-47%, while Biden leads by the same split among women. Biden leads among independents, 54%-41%. Trump leads among Anglo voters, 66%-32%. Biden leads among Black voters, 88%-7%, and Hispanic/Latino voters, 63%-32%.

It’s important to note that the sample for this poll is registered voters, not likely voters. This late in a campaign season, polls of likely voters are more instructive.

A new Crosswind poll of likely voters shows Trump leading Biden, 51%-44%. In a finding counter to most other recent polls, Trump leads among Hispanic/Latino voters, 48%-46%, which is a 29-point swing from the Public Policy Polling survey also released today (Thursday).
