A new poll has delivered great news to President Donald Trump.
Trump leads Joe Biden in every U.S. region but one among 2020 election voters, according to a new I&I/TIPP poll.
The poll asked, “If the presidential election were held today, and the following were the candidates, for whom would you vote?”
In September, Biden held a four-point lead over Trump (46 percent to 42.1 percent).
However, that has changed, according to the poll.
Biden has lost 1.2 percentage points while Trump gained 1.8 points, the poll found.
The poll reveals that Trump leads Biden in the south, 45.8 percent to 44.6 percent.
Trump also leads in the midwest, 45.9 percent to 44.9 percent, as well as the west, 42.4 percent to 39.7 percent.
Only in the liberal northeast, Biden has a lead over Trump, 53.6 percent to 39.1 percent.
More on the poll’s findings:
Trump now leads Biden among those aged 45-64 (45.8% support Trump vs. 41.8% Biden), those 65 and older (50.7% vs. 39.3%), women (44.9% vs. 41.9%), Whites (50.2% vs. 38.4%), independent voters (46.2% vs. 36.9%), suburban voters (47% vs. 39.4%) and rural voters (54.8% vs. 37.2%), and married women (52.2% vs 40.0%).
Moreover, even among those who still favored Biden in October, Trump realized some significant gains. Among Black voters, for instance, Trump moved from 18.1% support in September to 20.3% in October.

Among Hispanic voters, the fastest-growing voting bloc in the U.S., Trump gained a hefty 14.6 percentage points, from 24.2% to 38.8%. That’s more than the 33% of the Hispanic vote that Trump garnered in the 2020 election.
Trump has also flipped the tables on Biden among married women, who favored Biden 42.4 to 42.1 percent in September. In October, those numbers separated. The poll revealed Trump is now leading among married women 53.2 percent to Biden’s 40 percent.
The positive polling for Trump comes as Biden’s approval rating on Monday sank to a new low, according to FiveThirtyEight. Only 43.4 percent approve of Biden’s performance while 50.7 percent disapprove. The gap is the largest it has been all year.
