The latest Quinnipiac University poll shows the presidential race in Ohio is still a statistical dead heat. 

Democratic nominee Joe Biden leads President Trump 48 to 47 percent.  Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler reports. 

Biden is winning in the key demographic of voters over 65, women and wins Black voters overwhelmingly, while Trump has the edge among men and white voters. Among the likely voters surveyed, Trump leads by seven points on the economy, and is up slightly on handling the military. The candidates are tied on who can be trusted to keep families safe. And Biden leads on coronavirus response and by 12 points on handling racial inequality.

Trump ended up winning by 8.
