New York Times/Siena College poll of Nebraska's 2nd Congressional DistrictAn advantage in a small bu

Source: New York Times

In a close race, the presidential election could be decided by an unlikely spot: Nebraskaís Second Congressional District, including Omaha and most of its suburbs.

If the race is decided there, Joe Biden appears to have the advantage, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll. He leads President Trump by seven points, 48 percent to 41 percent, among likely voters in the first nonpartisan survey of the district so far this year, according to FiveThirtyEight.

The district is traditionally Republican, but Mr. Trump carried it by only two percentage points in 2016. It was even closer than familiar battleground states like Arizona or North Carolina.

The districtís demographics have made it an even more plausible pickup opportunity for Mr. Biden. Itís relatively white, metropolitan and well educated, and national polls routinely show Mr. Biden running ahead of Hillary Clintonís 2016 performance among all three groups.

Obama won the district in 2008.

1. Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District: "If the race is decided there,

Joe Biden appears to have the advantage"

Not likely to be decided there since that is a total of ONE electoral vote.

Nice to see, but...
