According to the Fox News survey, Biden has 48% of the support among voters and Trump has 40%, while 11% remain undecided.

In voters aged 65 and older Biden leads by 17 points and manages a 13 point lead among independents.

The poll, which recently surveyed more than 1,200 randomly selected registered voters, comes as Democratic and Republican leaders and the Trump administration have sparred over the next potential stimulus package amid the pandemic.

On both Biden's and Trump's sides, these independent groups have raised tens of millions of dollars on their own.

Some Democrats have anxious about polling that shows Biden facing an enthusiasm gap, but the Fox news survey found that Biden leads 53 percent to 41 among voters who say they're extremely motivated to vote in November.

Also, 69% of Biden supporters call themselves extremely motivated versus 61% of Trump voters.

Of those polled, 61 percent of voters described China as "unfriendly" or an "enemy" to the US, an increase of 9 points since January.

The poll suggests Trump is trusted more on the economy and has a slim 3-point margin.

Fox News released the results of its new poll as US relations with China continued to be a focal point of the 2020 presidential election campaign.

The Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday has Biden leading Trump 50 - 39% in a head-to-head matchup in the November election for president.

Out in the country, Biden hold a 30 point lead among rural white voters while Biden has a 64 point lead among black voters.
