A new poll brings good news for Trump and his supporters.
The poll finds that even though Biden leads by a few points nationally, Trump leads Biden in fifteen battleground states.
Some of them are states that Trump didn’t win in 2016.
The Hill reports:
Poll finds Trump ahead of Biden in 15 battleground states
A poll conducted by SSRS of 15 battleground states found former Vice President Joe Biden trailing President Trump.
The same poll, conducted for CNN, found Biden ahead of Trump nationally, but losing in the 15 states that might decide the vote in the Electoral College.
The poll did not include different surveys of each of the 15 states, but surveyed 583 people across 15 states that were decided by 8 points or fewer in 2016. The margin for the battleground states alone was 5.3 points.
The 15 states are Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
Trump lead Biden in the poll across those states 52 percent to 45 percent.
John Nolte of Breitbart adds this:
The best news for Trump in this poll almost certainly comes from how voters feel about economic stewardship. Now that these lockdowns have flattened the economy, voters are going to want to see things resurrected, and when it comes to the economy, by a wide margin of 54 to 42 percent, voters choose Trump.
This is bad news for Democrats and the media.
Biden is losing to Trump by 7% in the key battleground states.
LOSING by 7%!
Before debates. Before attack ads paint Joe as a pedofile with dementia, who wrote or championed most of the worst legislation ever written, and supported every trade deal that decimated the rust belt. https://t.co/b8aL9XLrJG

Trump supporters can’t take anything for granted, but this is encouraging news for them.
