Among likely voters, 47 percent view Biden favorably and 46 percent view him unfavorably. 42 percent of likely voters view Trump favorably and 51 percent view him unfavorably.

"In a state that's picked the winner of every presidential race since 1964, Ohio is a close race on the eve of Election Day 2020. Donald Trump easily won the state in 2016, but is losing some ground in the final stretch to Joe Biden," said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Mary Snow.

Biden was also leading in the most recent Quinnipiac poll taken late last week. Those numbers showed the former vice president with a 48%-43% edge, with likely voters in Ohio split on Biden and giving Trump a negative favorability rating. For Biden, 47 percent had a favorable opinion of him and 46 percent had an unfavorable opinion. For Trump, 43 percent had a favorable opinion of him and 50 percent had an unfavorable opinion.

With the state off Ohio in play, Biden made a campaign swing through Cleveland on Monday with a stop at Burke Lakefront Airport. “Ohio, one more day!" Biden said. "One more day! Tomorrow we have an opportunity to put an end to a presidency that has divided this nation. Tomorrow we can put an end to a president that has failed to protect this nation. Tomorrow we can that has fanned the flame of hate all across this country.”

The final NBC News / Wall Street Journal poll, which was released Sunday, shows Biden leading President Trump by 10 points nationally.
