Watch LIVE: Jill Biden visits El Paso on 1st day of early voting as poll shows tight presidential race in Texasdfwnewsa | October 13, 2020 | 0 | Texas News
EL PASO, Texas — As the latest poll in Texas shows the presidential race tight, Democratic nominee Joe Biden sent his wife to the Lone Star state to campaign on the first day of early voting.
As the first ballots were being cast on Tuesday, Jill Biden is visiting El Paso along with two other Texas cities.
Jill Biden is making stops in El Paso, Houston and Dallas. Her appearance in El Paso is taking place at UTEP’s Centennial Plaza.
The Texas campaign swing by Biden’s wife comes as a University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll released late last week shows President Donald Trump leading Joe Biden by just five points in the Lone Star state.
The president garners 50% of the state’s likely voters, compared to Biden’s 45%, the poll showed.
Daron Shaw, a professor of government at the University of Texas at Austin and co-director of the poll, said what the poll result “really shows you is just how much of this is about Trump. The race is a marker for attitudes towards Trump. It really is a referendum.”
