A new poll has some very good news for Trump and Republicans.
It seems Trump is doing really well in the rust belt. If he wins these states again, he is almost guaranteed to win reelection.
Poll: Donald Trump Beating 2020 Democrats in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin
President Donald Trump is now leading Democrat presidential candidates in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, as Congressional Democrats continue struggling to impeach the president.
A Firehouse/Optimus poll conducted in December shows Trump ahead of his Democrat opponents, even former Vice President Joe Biden who remains one of the stronger candidates opposing the president.
Biden is five points below Trump in Michigan and Pennsylvania and nine points below Trump in Wisconsin.
Prior polls from Firehouse Strategies showed Biden competing evenly with Trump in states like Michigan or beating him in the states of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
In Wisconsin, Biden went from a 12-point lead of President Trump in March to nine points below the president in December.
Trump has similar or stronger leads over Democrat candidates Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Newcomer candidate former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg also loses big against President Trump, the poll shows.
Much of this has to do with impeachment.
Poll: Impeachment is helping Trump in 3 key battleground states
Quarterly polling by the Republican firm Firehouse Strategies, with Optimus, had President Trump struggling in the mega-battlegrounds of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — but in the newest edition, he beats every Democrat.
The big picture: Trump won by an average of six percentage points in hypothetical match-ups against all current Democratic candidates, including Joe Biden, who was performing well in head-to-head contests against Trump in polling conducted earlier in the year.
– The poll found that a majority of likely 2020 voters surveyed do not support impeaching and removing Trump from office.
Democrats may end up helping Trump win a second term.
