In an interview with CBS’s Margaret Brennan on “Face The Nation,” Perez responded to recent polls in battleground states that show Biden with various leads: the newest CBS News-YouGov polls show Biden with an edge over President Donald Trump.
Perez emphasized “enthusiasm” as a key indicator during his interview, citing early vote totals in Wisconsin where more than 25% of people have voted, and in Florida where Perez claimed 2.4 million people had voted.
National polls show Biden with double-digit leads in NBC New/WSJ polls, NPR/PBS/Marist polls and Reuters polls.
The average spread among battleground states – which includes Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Arizona – shows Biden with an average lead of +4.3 points.
In Michigan, Biden holds an average +7.2 point lead, and in Wisconsin he holds an average +6.1 point lead.
