WASHINGTON, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leads U.S. President Donald Trump by ten percentage points nationally, according to a new poll released on Sunday.

Biden's support stands at 52 percent to Trump's 42 percent among national registered voters, the NBC News and Wall Street Journal poll showed as Election day is just two days away.
