Trump leads Biden in two key battleground states, polls reveals

 December 12, 2023

Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden in polls in both Georgia and Michigan.

The CNN polls showed Trump growing in his advantage over the president in two states that he lost in 2020.

The Michigan surge

"The CNN polls found Trump has a 10-point lead over Biden among Michigan voters, despite the sitting president carrying the state in 2020," the Hill reported.

"Fifty percent of Michigan voters said they would support Trump, 40 percent chose Biden and 10 percent said they wouldn’t choose either candidate," it added.

Georgia too

"Surveys conducted by SSRS for CNN found Michigan registered voters break for Trump by double digits (50% to 40%) over Biden, while Georgia registered voters back the former president over his successor by five percentage points (49% to 44%)," the New York Post reported.

"The 2024 matchup polls also found that Trump, 77, is winning support from voters who didn’t participate in the 2020 election by a 26-point margin in Georgia and a 40-point margin in Michigan," it continued.

Biden's overall advantage

"In the seven states where the election was closest in 2020 -- Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina and Michigan -- Biden had a 4-point lead among Americans who said they were sure to vote," Reuters reported, showing the close battle in key states.

"Overall, the poll showed deep apathy among many voters at a potential Biden-Trump rematch. About six in 10 respondents said they were not satisfied with America's two-party system and want a third choice," it noted

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is running as an Independent, leading a campaign that could cost votes for both Trump and Biden.

Other third-party candidates may also make a difference in close matchups, with more potentially to come, including speculation of a third-party run by West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, who recently announced plans not to run for reelection in the Senate.

The 2024 battle will be a heated one, with the potential rematch sure to cause controversy as a handful of states likely decide who wins the electoral vote next year.
