Buttigieg, Biden tied with Trump in Arizona: poll

Democratic 2020 White House hopefuls Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg are in a statistical dead heat with President Trump among Arizona voters, according to a new poll.

In a mock-up general election, Biden has 44 percent support compared to Trump’s 46 percent, according to the OH Predictive Insights poll released Monday.

Buttigieg has 43 percent support compared to Trump’s 45 percent. Both of Trump’s narrow 2-point leads against the Democrats are within the 3.9 percentage point margin of error.

The results show a decrease in support for the former vice president, who led Trump 49 percent to 44 percent in the state based on a May poll.

But Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., has increased his support 6 points, up from 37 percent when he was polled against Trump in May to meet Biden at the top of the field when placed against the president.
