Joe Biden’s lead among women over President Donald Trump is now even larger than Hillary Clinton’s in 2016, according to a new poll.

Biden leads Trump by 21 percentage points in a NBC/Wall Street Journal poll published Sunday. Biden has 56% support among female voters compared with Trump’s 35%. NBC exit polls from 2016 had Clinton with a 13 percentage point lead over Trump among women.

The poll also found Biden with double digit leads among African American voters, 82% to 9%, Latinos, 57% to 33%, voters 18 to 34, 54% to 35%, whites with college degrees and independents, 45% to 35%. Biden had an 8 percentage point lead over Trump among voters 65 and older, 51% to 43%.

Trump led Biden among men, 50% to 42% and all white voters, 49% to 43%. His biggest margin over Biden was among whites without college degrees, where Trump led 55% to 37%.

Biden’s national lead of 7 percentage points among all registered voters over Trump remained unchanged from the NBC/WSJ poll in April.

Meanwhile, results are awaited from Saturday’s primary in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Primaries are coming up Tuesday in West Virginia and Georgia.
