Trump Continues To Lead Biden In Swing State Polling


A new survey from Morning Consult has found that President Biden continues to poll unfavourably against former President Donald Trump in key swing states.

  • Morning Consult: “Among swing-state voters, President Joe Biden’s standing against former President Donald Trump is worst in North Carolina, the more conservative-leaning state of the bunch. But Biden also continues to face notable deficits relative to Trump in Georgia, a state that was key to his 2020 victory, and in Nevada, which Republicans have been trying to flip for several cycles.”
  • Notably, “Swing-state voters are more likely to blame Biden than other domestic political figures and their parties for the increase in migrant crossings. Across the seven states, 41% of voters blame the incumbent president and 35% blame Democrats on Capitol Hill, compared with 14% each who blame congressional Republicans or the Trump administration.”
