Biden has a 2 percentage-point edge over Trump among registered voters in Florida, with 50% support for the Democratic nominee compared with 48% for the president, the Oct. 20-23 CBS News poll found.
The poll also found voters in each party have very different views about the risks associated with the coronavirus, with Biden supporters far more likely to say they could contract it. In Florida, 56% of Biden supporters said they are very concerned they will catch it, compared with just 13% of Trump supporters.
When asked which candidate can better handle the virus outbreak, Biden led Trump 49%.
The Florida poll had a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points.
