Donald Trump Leads Joe Biden By Two Points Across Six Battleground States
The new poll also found that a majority of likely voters in the swing states disapproved of the president's performance in the White House.

UP NEXT President Donald Trump is leading Joe Biden by two points in six battlegrounds states, a new poll has found.

The latest survey by Change Research and CNBC revealed that 47 percent of likely voters in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin would back the commander-in-chief if an election were held the same day.

By comparison, 45 percent told pollsters they would opt for former Vice President Biden. A further 4 percent said they would back a third-party candidate while 3 percent were unsure who they would back in November.

When the hypothetical ballot was whittled down to a simple head-to-head between Trump and Biden, the president had a three-point lead among battleground state voters.

President Trump's lead over the presumptive Democratic nominee in key swing states came in spite of disapproval over his handling of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Forty-eight percent of those polled said they either "strongly" or "somewhat" approved of the commander-in-chief's handling of the COVID-19 outbreak, compared to 52 percent who disapproved.

But his approval rating on the issue was still better than that of Congress, with seven-in-ten of the swing state voters telling pollsters they disapproved of Congress' reaction to the pandemic.

Asked who they believed President Trump favored most with his economic responses to the pandemic, half of voters told pollsters that the policies favored the wealthy and big corporations.

A little more than one-in-five (21 percent) said Trump's bailouts favored the middle class and small businesses, while roughly a quarter (24 percent) said they favored both groups equally.

Giving an overall rating of the U.S. economy, 24 percent said it was in either an "excellent" or "good" state. The remaining 76 percent rated it as "not so good" or "poor."

A similar number (71 percent) told pollsters they thought the economy was either "probably" or "definitely" in the midst of a recession.

Asked what they thought of President Trump's general performance in the White House, 49 percent said they approved of the job he was doing while 51 percent disapproved.

Change Research pollsters surveyed 3,544 likely voters across the six battleground states between May 1 and May 3. The poll's margin of error is 1.6 percentage points.

At the 2016 presidential election, President Trump won Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin within a percentage point of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

His victories in the other three states polled by Change Research were slightly wider. Trump beat Clinton by 1.2, 3.5 and 3.6 points in Florida, Arizona and North Carolina respectively.

Enjoy those polls.  Meantime, Lincoln Project will spend the spring and summer defining Trump's abject failures for all the world to see.  And women will put that final nail in his political coffin in the end.  Go check out those polls.

Yes, yes, yes, Hillary is a shoo-in, Trump has NO path to 270, and all is right in the Democratic Party, right?

LOL!

Are you speaking about the EIGHT INDIVIDUALS that make up "The Lincoln Project" and have a web site which is really nothing but a DONATION PLEADING PAGE?  That "Lincoln Project"?

If they weren't so pathetic, they would be laughable.  What's really laughable, are the lemmings placing their hope in that bunch of self serving losers.

Hey, XD - check this out (Wiki, but verified by NYT and WaPo) ...

The Lincoln Project   is an American   political action committee   formed in late 2019 by several prominent   Republicans . The goal of the committee is to prevent the reelection of   Donald Trump   in the   2020 presidential election . [1]   In April 2020, the committee announced their   endorsement of Joe Biden , a   Democrat , shortly after   Bernie Sanders announced the suspension of his campaign . [2]

The committee was announced on December 17, 2019, in a   New York Times   op-ed   by   George Conway ,   Steve Schmidt ,   John Weaver , and   Rick Wilson . [3]

Conway is an attorney and the husband of   Kellyanne Conway , an advisor to Trump; Schmidt and Weaver are political strategists, and Wilson is a media consultant. [4]   All four, although conservative Republicans, are outspoken critics of Trump. [5]   Jennifer Rubin , in a   Washington Post   op-ed, described the four founders as "Some of the most prominent   NeverTrump   Republicans." [6]

Women are not as stupid as you seem to think. Biden has no credibility at all at anything.

By election day the economy will be recovering and the pandemic situation will be improving.

The Democrat politicians who have put 33,000,000 people out of work will be voted out.

It's 179 days until Election Day, and Biden doesn't even have a campaign message yet.

Biden will lose the election by far more electoral votes than Hillary did.

...and anyone who even remotely believes that mail-in voting can be done fairly is either really stupid or obtuse to the notion that a signed blank ballot can be strong-armed or bought for a loosey.

Republicans are mostly old, and they often rely on voting by mail.  The gop loved it until democrats joined them.  Makes one wonder what kind of fraud they were perpetrating since they are always projecting their misdeeds on to others.

https://www.npr.org/2020/04/11/831978099/even-as-trump-denounces-vote-by-mail-gop-in-florida-and-elsewhere-relies-on-it

For many years, it was Republicans who pushed voting by mail, said Daniel Smith, a political science professor at the University of Florida, who has studied how mail-in voting has been used in the state.

"Their electorate happens to be older on average than Democrats, happens to be more affluent," Smith said of Republicans. "It happens to have a more permanent residency in terms of less transient, less mobile population, which makes the delivery and return of absentee ballots easier."
