A new poll is showing that Democrats will face a difficult battle in the key battleground state of Wisconsin, when their eventual nominee faces President Trump in the key battle ground state.
As The Hill reports:
A Quinnipiac University Poll survey released on Thursday shows Trump trouncing six Democratic presidential contenders in head-to-head match-ups in Wisconsin, one of the so-called blue wall states carried by the real estate mogul in the 2016 election.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Vice President Joe Biden, the two candidates in closest competition with the president, are running 7 points behind him in the state, while Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) appear to have the toughest odds, trailing Trump in hypothetical match-ups by 10 points and 11 points, respectively.
But it wasn’t all good news for the President, as the poll also showed him slightly behind in two other key 2020 battlegrounds: Pennsylvania and Michigan.
But in Pennsylvania, another state that flipped for Trump after former President Obama won it in 2008 and 2012, the Democratic candidates’ prospects look brighter. Biden leads the president in the Keystone State, 50 percent to 42 percent. Meanwhile, Klobuchar and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg lead Trump by 7 points and 6 points, respectively…
In Michigan, another longtime blue state carried by Trump in 2016, the Democratic candidates appear to have an advantage, though the race against Trump is tighter. Sanders and Bloomberg carry the largest leads in that state, with the former topping Trump 48 percent to 43 percent and the latter leading 47 percent to 42 percent.
Still with the margin of error in the poll being 3.4 percent, it would be foolish to discount Trump’s chances in Michigan and Pennsylvania, two states he carried handily in the 2016 election.
