(WFRV) – With less than a month to the November election, former Vice President Joe Biden holds a five-point lead over President Donald Trump in Wisconsin, according to the latest poll.

In early September, Biden led Trump, 47% to 43%.

The most recent poll also found a third of respondents think Pres. Trump has mild symptoms from COVID-19 while slightly more say they don’t yet know how ill he is.

In light of Pres. Trump’s diagnosis, most respondents said they think in-person campaign rallies should by halted and a majority think debates should continue.

By a 2-to-1 margin, polled Wisconsin voters said Biden did a better job in the first presidential debate.

Over a third of participants say they’ve stopped talking about politics with someones.

Compared to September, more respondents say they are very worried by the risk of getting ill from the coronavirus while support for requiring masks in public places is slightly higher than in August.
