AARP swing-state polling shows Biden up, with some tight races

If all these states were to go to the current leader in these polls, Joe  Biden would win by a landslide in the Electoral College, although the size of the lead in many states was within the margin of error.

The AARP sponsored polls of the presidential race in a huge number of potential swing states, with results out today.

AARP was focused on the senior vote, which it reported separately. But the general results, for likely voters of all ages, with a very large sample of 1,600 voters in most states and 1,200 in some, was passed along by FiveThirtyEight.com, and I’ll pass those numbers along to you with no comment other than: If all these states were to go to the current leader as shown in in these polls, the Biden/Harris ticket would win by a landslide in the Electoral College, although the size of the lead in many states was within the error margin.
