Support for the presumptive Democratic nominee for the 2020 Presidential election Joe Biden has dropped in a new CNN poll and although the former Vice President still holds a lead over President Donald Trump, he’s nearing the 3.7 percentage point margin of error.

The Democratic National Convention is this week and that’s where Biden will accept his nomination for the 2020 ticket.

According to the poll, 50 percent of registered voters support a Biden-Harris ticket, while 46 percent say they support a Trump-Pence ticket. It’s a difference of 4 percentage points.

Among the 72 percent of voters who reported feeling “either extremely or very enthusiastic” about voting in the November election, support for Biden fell from 53 percent to 46 percent, the poll reveals.

“It is narrower, however, among those voters who live in the states that will have the most impact on the electoral college this fall,” CNN notes.

The CNN poll, conducted by SSRS, questioned 1,108 registered voters between August 12th and the 15th.

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
