President Donald Trump’s campaign has now called on CNN to apologize for publishing a poll that showed former Vice President Joe Biden winning the 2020 presidential election by a whopping 14 points.

Trump, Biden battle for Florida on same day as race nears end
President Donald Trump and challenger Joe Biden will rally voters just hours apart in the Florida city of Tampa on Thursday, their campaign paths crossing for the first time as the rivals' fight for the White House enters its frenetic final days.
Florida is a must-win prize, and polls show the candidates in a dead heat in America's third-largest state, which has sided with the winner in every presidential election since 1964, with one exception.
