Recently, a poll out of Ohio stunned Americans. It revealed that Donald Trump–who is facing numerous indictments and legal battles–was beating Joe Biden by a staggering twelve points. Biden is fighting to win over as many swing states as possible.
But the Democrat has to convince struggling Americans that his socialist agenda is actually working. Trump’s lead in Ohio is well outside the margin of error, making it unlikely that Biden can turn it around in only a year.
Beyond Ohio, there are still numerous states that Trump needs to secure, if he wishes to kick Biden out of the White House. Some of these states have flipped back and forth in recent years. But a new poll is coming out of a state both candidates need. And nobody saw this coming.
Former President Donald Trump holds a nearly double-digit lead over President Joe Biden in a hypothetical head-to-head presidential race in Pennsylvania, according to an Emerson College poll.
The poll, published on Wednesday, shows that 45 percent of registered voters in the Quaker State back Trump, placing him 9 points ahead of Biden at 36 percent.
Despite Pennsylvania’s increasingly leftist trend, a new poll reveals Trump is leading Biden by nine points. Trump has 45 percent of the vote, compared to Biden’s 36 percent. This is nearly a doubt-digit lead that will certainly be cause for concern among the Biden camp.
Pennsylvania is considered a deeply blue-collar state, with strong ties to unions. It often swings in Democrats’ favor because of this. In the last election, voters elected John Fetterman–a radical leftist who suffered a debilitating stroke–because he came off as a “regular guy” compared to his rival.
It is possible that Pennsylvania voters, who elected Biden in 2020, are revolting against the White House’s policies. Biden is regularly blamed for the struggling economy, especially inflation which is driving up consumer prices. Because of these factors, perhaps, Biden’s approval in the state is only 31 percent.
Despite seemingly positive jobs numbers, most Americans say they are worried about their finances and the future of the country. These factors might be influencing more and more Pennsylvania voters to turn back to Trump.
Time will tell if these numbers hold strong until November 2024. Trump is facing incredible headwinds against his election, in the form of criminal trials and other lawsuits. He will have to juggle these conflicts, while still making a case to Pennsylvania voters.
