Joe Biden Suffers Polling Disaster Against Donald Trump: '5 Alarm Fire'
Category: News & PoliticsVia: s • 4 weeks ago • 50 comments
A Bloomberg/Morning Consult survey found that Biden is between three and 10 points behind the Republican front-runner in November's race in Arizona (47-43 percent), Georgia (49-41), Michigan (47-42), Nevada (48-40), North Carolina (49-39), Pennsylvania (48-45) and Wisconsin (49-44).
In total, Trump leads Biden across all states on average by 48-42 in the poll, which suggests Biden's hopes of winning the next election are looking precarious.
Alyssa Farah Griffin, the former Trump White House communications director and a CNN commentator, said the results show "eye-popping numbers" for Trump in battleground states.
"This should be a 5 alarm fire for the Biden campaign," Griffin posted on X, formerly Twitter .
When the results are broken down further, nearly two-thirds (61 percent) of swing-state voters said Biden is at least somewhat responsible for the increase in migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, more than the 38 percent who said Republicans in Congress are responsible, or the 30 percent who said so about the Trump administration.
More voters in the swing states also said they Trust Trump to better handle illegal immigration than Biden, (52 to 30 percent), an increase from 5-point difference since the December poll.
The poll also shows that in every swing state except Michigan, a majority of voters said they've seen more immigrants over the last few years of the Biden administration.
However, the poll also suggests that Trump's multiple legal issues continue to loom over his latest White House bid.
According to the survey, more than half (53 percent) of voters in the seven key states said they would not vote for Trump if he is a convicted criminal by November's election, with 55 percent saying they would not if he is sentenced to prison.
Trump has pleaded not guilty to a total of 97 felonies across four federal and state investigations, with a jury potentially deciding his fate in four trials before November's election.
Trump has long denied all wrongdoing, and accuses each of the investigations into him as being politically motivated "witch hunts" which aim to stop him winning the next election.
The Bloomberg News/Morning Consult poll surveyed 4,956 registered voters in seven swing states. The surveys were conducted online from January 16 to 22.
