Trump Crushes Biden in Another Swing State Poll, Immigration Takes Center Stage

We all know that Democratic President and octogenarian Joe Biden is continually losing popularity. But it’s becoming more and more clear that this lack of popularity just might cost him the 2024 election.

According to a recent poll taken in seven critical swing states, both the ongoing immigration crisis and the failing economy are major issues voters are concerned about – and both can be blamed on Biden.

This has given former President Donald Trump a major lead in nearly every state across the board.

Per the survey, registered voters in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin all said they prefer Trump to Biden, 44 percent to 35 percent, respectively. What’s even more noteworthy is that this is the case when a third-party contender is included in the running, someone like Robert F. Kennedy Jr, for example.

But when third-party candidates are excluded, Trump wins with 48 percent of the vote and Biden gets 42 percent of it.

Looking a little closer, thanks to the Bloomberg/Morning Consult poll, we can see that immigration by far ranks as the top voting issue. Overall, 96 percent say this will influence how And also why voters are choosing Trump over Biden.

According to the poll, 52 percent to 30 percent trust Trump over Biden to handle what’s going on at our borders due to Biden’s complete lack of attention spent on the issues at hand.

As Axios reported, that’s a five-point increase compared to the margin of percentage points in December.

Of course, and as I mentioned above, the economy is also a major voting issue. In fact, the poll notes that 84 percent of voters say this issue will help them decide on who to vote for.

On this, the margin is pretty similar. Fifty-one percent trust Trump to handle the economy to, Biden’s 33 percent. However, there does seem to be a bit of a disconnect somewhere because 71 percent of voters asked said they believe the economy is headed in the wrong direction.

It seems that quite a few people haven’t been forced to recognize that Biden is the reason the economy is failing.

Similarly, about two thirds of all voters asked said they think Biden is to blame for the immigration issues at hand. According to Axios, this has gone up in six of the seven swing states polled.

Clearly, this is pretty good news for Trump and the GOP.

However, the poll also asked about a possible Trump conviction, seeing as how he’s facing legal action on a number of fronts. Should a conviction be levied on the former president, it seems that the lead he’s been given, according to the poll, could easily be wiped away, with some 53 percent of voters saying they would be less likely or very unlikely to vote for him.

It was also noted that he is still viewed quite unfavorably by a lot of voters, about 52 percent in fact. It just seems he is the lesser of two evils when it comes to four more years of Biden, whom 58 percent dislike.

Now, as you know, polls, especially this far out, don’t necessarily mean a whole lot. For starters, a lot can happen between now and the general election, such as a Trump conviction or a Biden bow out for the DNC nomination.

Plus, as we learned in 2020, it pretty much all comes down to who is harvesting and counting the votes. As social media influencer Mike Cernovich stated on his X account, they alone “decide the winner.”

However, it’s also clear that these swing state voters will end up deciding the election, too. And currently, it all looks to be in Trump’s favor.
