According to new polling released on Monday, former President Trump is ahead of President Biden in the battleground states of Georgia and Michigan.
According to CNN polls, Trump leads Biden by ten points among Michigan voters, even though the incumbent president won the state in 2020.
In Michigan, half of the electorate declared they would vote for Trump, 40% for Biden, and 10% for neither candidate.
A CNN survey also gave Trump the advantage in Georgia, a state that Biden barely won in 2020.
If Georgia voters were pitted against each other in a hypothetical general election, 49% said they would support Trump and 44% said they would choose Biden.
A percentage of 7% expressed that they would not cast their vote for any of the candidates.
There will be a 2020 rematch in 2024 as Trump and Biden are the overwhelming favorites to win the Republican and Democratic presidential nominations, respectively.
Pollsters found that a sizable portion of voters in both battleground states—64 percent in Michigan and 61 percent in Georgia—disapprove of the way Biden is leading the nation.
The polls also revealed possible weak points for each contender; for example, 69% of Georgia voters and 69% of Michigan voters, respectively, felt that Joe Biden lacked the wit and endurance they desired in a president.
Voters in Georgia and Michigan agreed that Trump’s temperament is not what they want in a president, with 57% and 58% of the respective groups saying as much.
