According to recent polling, there is promising news for former President Donald Trump and his supporters. The data reveals that Trump is currently leading Joe Biden in the crucial swing states of Pennsylvania and Michigan. This news carries significant weight when considering that Trump had emerged victorious in both of these states during the 2016 election.
In Pennsylvania, an Emerson College poll conducted earlier this month shows Trump with a nine-point lead over Biden. The numbers indicate that 45 percent of respondents in the state support Trump, while only 36 percent favor Biden. Additionally, 11 percent of those polled expressed their intention to vote for someone else, and 8 percent remained undecided.
Meanwhile, a poll commissioned by a local consulting firm in Michigan this month exhibits a seven-point advantage for Trump over Biden. Out of those surveyed, 42 percent expressed their support for Trump, compared to 35 percent for Biden. Moreover, 20 percent of respondents in Michigan stated that they would vote for another candidate, and 3 percent declined to select a candidate.
This recent development has caught the attention of John Nolte from Breitbart News. He emphasizes that, according to the RealClearPolitics (RCP) poll of Pennsylvania polls, Trump currently maintains a lead of 1.8 points over Biden. Notably, throughout the 2020 election, Trump had never secured a lead over Biden in the RCP poll of Pennsylvania polls. Furthermore, in Michigan, Trump is currently leading Biden in the RCP poll of polls by 0.2 points, primarily attributed to a single poll that shows Trump with a seven-point advantage. During the highly contested 2020 election in Michigan, Trump had never surpassed Biden in the RCP poll of polls.
Although the election is still far off, these poll results indicate a positive direction for Trump and his supporters. It is important to remember that polling can be subject to skepticism, but when considering Trump’s previous success in these states, it adds further significance to the current findings.
