WASHINGTON – Former Vice President Joe Biden would defeat President Donald Trump by more than double digits in the key swing state of Michigan, a poll released Friday predicted.
The EPIC-MRA poll found that 52% of the respondents said they support Biden and 41% said they support Trump. Meanwhile, 7% said they are not sure which candidate they would support.
Moreover, the poll found that 64% of the respondents said they either want to replace Trump or would consider voting for someone else.
The poll found that 32% percent said they would vote to re-elect Trump and 4% said they are not sure which candidate they would support.
The survey included 600 active and likely voters, and was carried out Saturday through Wenesday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
In 2016, Trump became the first Republican to win Michigan since George H.W. Bush. Trump’s victory there, and in two other rust-belt states (Wisconsin and Pennsylvania), gave him a decisive victory in the Electoral College.
Pundits say Trump must carry all three states to win re-election.
The ever-growing Democratic presidential field now includes 23 candidates.
Polls show Biden with an overwhelming lead, which means he is the candidate most likely to face Trump in 2020.
