|In the homestretch of the presidential election, the Biden campaign has ruled the paid media landscape, according to The New York Times.|
On television and radio, the Biden campaign spent $62 million over the last week, while the Trump campaign only spent about $15.5 million, according to Advertising Analytics, an ad tracking firm. The advantage holds on Facebook, where the Biden campaign has spent $9.9 million over the past week, and the Trump campaign has spent $4.7 million over the same period there.
|As voters streamed to early voting sites this week and absentee ballots flooded in, expectations that the election would see historically high turnout were affirmed. In Texas, a closely watched battleground, more than 9 million ballots had already been cast as of Friday — more than the total number of votes cast there in the 2016 election.|
Surveys released this week continued to show a steady lead for Mr. Biden nationwide, and a powerful advantage in most major battleground states. A New York Times/Siena College survey of North Carolina gave Mr. Biden a three-percentage-point edge there, while a separate Times/Siena poll of Michigan put Mr. Biden’s lead at eight points.
