President Trump has officially passed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the polls in the all important swing states of Florida and Arizona, which is a sign that the race between the two is getting tighter the closer it gets to November.
The poll, conducted by ABC News and The Washington Post, was released on Wednesday. Trump took the lead in Arizona by one point, with 49 percent to Biden’s 48 percent.
Trump has pulled ahead of Biden among voters in Florida by four points, with his support now at 51 percent with the former vice president’s still at 47 percent.

Many election analysts believe that the election result in Florida, and its 29 Electoral College votes, could be the decisive factor that determines whether it is Trump or Biden who wins the presidential election.
The president lagged behind Biden in the results for only registered voters, a less-accurate measure of what the election result would be if it were held today. In Arizona, Trump had 47% to Biden’s 49% among registered voters, and in Florida, he had 47% to 48% for Biden.
The polls were conducted Sept. 15-20, which included two days of polling following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday.
While poll numbers can somewhat give you an idea of where a political race is at with voters, they should be taken with a grain of salt. After all, polls in 2016 made it clear that Hillary Clinton was supposed to defeat Trump soundly and that didn’t happen at all.
A lot of folks, particularly in middle America — the flyover states — don’t participate in these surveys. They save their voices and vote instead. So it’s still anyone’s game at this point.
