Trump narrows gap with Biden, new poll shows – Fox News

WHAT THE LATEST FOX NEWS POLL SHOWS IN THE WHITE HOUSE RACE

The ticket of Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris of California – whom the former vice president and presumptive Democratic nominee named as his running mate last week – tops the ticket of Trump and Vice President Mike Pence 50%-46% among registered voters in a CNN survey conducted August 12-15. The 4-point advantage for the Democratic ticket is right at the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
