Poll: Trump Widens Lead On Biden In Michigan, Georgia

A new CNN/SSRS poll shows President Donald Trump is widening his lead over Joe Biden among likely voters in the key battleground states of Michigan and Georgia. The poll shows Trump with a 10-point advantage in Michigan and a 5-point lead in Georgia. Biden narrowly won both states in the controversial and contested 2020 election.

The new data shows growing voter dissatisfaction with Biden’s performance in the White House. Only 35% of all likely Michigan voters and 39% in Georgia give Biden’s job performance a positive rating. The current administration’s disastrous economic policies and Biden’s rapidly diminishing mental acuity are among the most critical considerations of respondents who are not pleased with how the country is going.

An interesting segment of the poll analyzed the preferences of likely 2024 voters who did not vote in the 2020 presidential election. The survey’s findings show that “Trump received a significant amount of support from voters who said they didn’t cast a ballot in 2020, leading Biden by 26 points among that electorate in Georgia and 40 points in Michigan.” Potential voters who have previously felt alienated by the political process or were apathetic are breaking heavily for Trump.

In comparing other potential GOP candidates with Biden, voters preferred Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and former UN ambassador Nikki Haley over Biden in the battleground states.
Trump also demonstrated broad appeal among younger voters and political independents.

Trump held leads well above the margin of error over Biden in Michigan and Georgia with voters under age 45. The trend of young voters being crucial to the outcomes in closely contested states is certain to continue in 2024.

The new numbers from Michigan and Georgia indicate a shift in voter preferences. President Trump is gaining momentum as Biden’s problems increase daily. Democrats are facing impending disaster with the Biden reelection campaign. As the clock is ticking, many observers speculate that the party may consider a change at the top of the ticket. At the same time, there is still time to hope to find a candidate who can compete with Trump.
