Former President Donald Trump maintains a 4-point lead over President Joe Biden and is nearing the 50% threshold at the national level, according to a recent survey.

Trump earned 49% support among registered voters in the latest CNN poll that saw Biden claim 45%. A majority, 51%, said they would not consider voting for Biden while 48% said the same of Trump, suggesting there exists little room for the numbers to shift in the upcoming year.

Trump notably performed well with minority groups that typically break for Democrats, earning 23% support among black voters and 46% among Latinos. He further edged out Biden 48% to 47% with voters under 35.

The Republican also outperformed Biden among men of color, earning 49% support in that bloc to Biden's 46%. Women of color, however, broke 63% for Biden and 31% for Trump.

Biden's approval rating stood at 39% approve to 61% disapprove.

Conducted Oct. 27-Nov. 2, the survey questioned 1,271 registered votes and has a margin of error of +/- 3.3%.

CNN's figures may represent a modest outlier, as Trump leads Biden by 1.4%, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average, which includes the CNN survey.
