2020 election countdown: How are people voting?
The latest results from Heart+Mind Strategies’ coronavirus poll shed light on the public's opinion about who will win the presidential election.

When it comes to Americans voting decisions, three issues are weighing heavily on their minds—and on their ballots.

The latest results from Heart+Mind Strategies’ coronavirus poll indicate how these issues are factoring into Americans’ votes. With the general election less than 20 days from the survey date of October 14-15, results showed 38% (-4) think Donald Trump will win and 44% (+2) think Joe Biden will win.
