CLEVELAND — Former Vice President Joe Biden announced he will be stopping in Cleveland on Monday to campaign the last day before the election.

His campaign did not say where in Cleveland he will be stopping.

Biden coming to Ohio the day before the election means his campaign considers Ohio to be in play.

According to a Quinnipiac poll, Biden is leading President Donald Trump by five points in Ohio.

Among likely voters in Ohio, 48% support Biden and 43% support Trump. This is a significant shift from the previous polls conducted by Quinnipiac on Oct. 14 and Sept. 24, which both showed Biden ahead by just one point – 48 to 47. While the latest poll shows Biden with a slim lead over the president, it still falls within the margin of error, as did those previous.

Meanwhile, the closest Trump's campaign is getting to the Buckeye State the last day before the election, at least for the time being, is Erie, Pennsylvania.
