Trump Poll Numbers Surging in Battleground States
President Trump was attacked by the media when polls showed him trailing the Democrats in key states. Now polls are showing the president surging in these key states.

According to The Daily Wire:

A new poll shows President Trump is surging in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, slicing into the lead of former Vice President Joe Biden, who is currently leading the Democratic field by a large margin. Additionally, the poll shows the two men in a statistical dead heat in Michigan.

he Firehouse-Optimus poll, conducted from June 11-13, shows Trump with a tremendous surge in Pennsylvania; Biden had an eight-point lead in March that has narrowed to a scant one-point lead. The Trump “base” in Pennsylvania has a huge lead over the Democratic “base.” Trump’s stands at 42%, dwarfing the Democrats', which is at 24%. The poll adds, “This is a recurring trend across states — those who say they will vote for Trump are very consistent across ballot tests, while many Democratic-leaning voters fluctuate between supporting the Democrat, a generic third-party candidate, or not being sure.”

Since March, Biden’s lead over Trump in Wisconsin has shrunk from 12 percentage points to six. The Trump “base” in Wisconsin, according to the poll, rests at 37%; the Democratic “base” stands at 32%. Trump’s approval rating has risen from 41% to 44% since March.

In Michigan, where the Trump “base” is 39% and the Democratic base rests at 32%, Trump and Biden were tied in March; Biden now holds a slim three-point lead, leaving them in a statistical dead heat.

The polls also indicated that a majority in the key states do not want to see Congress launch an impeachment inquiry against the president.
