Polls Indicate Trump Running Behind Biden In Eleven Key States

Published

on

A report from NBC News indicates that the Trump 2020 re-election campaign is cutting ties with its internal polling team after numbers leaked showing President Donald Trump trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in 11 key states and running nearly 10 points behind Biden in at least one national poll.

The numbers, which show Trump struggling to find footing against Biden in states he easily won over his 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton, are from March — before Joe Biden officially entered the race, and before he became a top target of his opponents for the 2020 Democratic nomination — but the numbers are concerning enough for the Trump 2020 campaign to take action.

Specifically, the polls show Trump “underperforming in reliably red states that haven’t been competitive for decades in presidential elections” — something the President’s re-election campaign does need to worry about.

In battleground states, Trump and Biden are in hot competition, likely because the President’s message of economic populism is largely the same message as Joe Biden’s. States like Wisconsin, Florida, and Michigan, where Trump pulled out narrow wins, are watching the President closely.

“In Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida and Michigan — three states where Trump edged Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by narrow margins that proved decisive in his victory — Trump trails Biden by double-digits. In three of those states — Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida — Biden’s leads sit outside the poll’s margin of error,” NBC News reports.

Trump is also down by one point in Ohio, and, shockingly, only up by two points in Texas.

The Trump campaign acknowledged the leaked numbers but also pointed out that they’re from March, which is “ancient” by campaign standards, and that the numbers represent an “incomplete” assessment of polling data. The polls were also taken at a volatile time for the Trump presidency, before Trump was exonerated of collusion with Russian officials by the Mueller report.

“These leaked numbers are ancient, in campaign terms, from months-old polling that began in March before two major events had occurred: the release of the summary of the Mueller report exonerating the President, and the beginning of the Democrat candidates defining themselves with their far-left policy message,” Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, told NBC News.

The numbers also pre-date any serious campaigning from the other side of the aisle. March was well before Biden entered the race, and at the time, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was leading the field of candidates who were actually in contention. Since then, Sanders has tanked by 20 points, and Democratic candidates have taken to attacking each other and not the President.

A Fox News poll, taken last week, though, shows that Trump may have a rockier road to re-election than anticipated, though, even if the leaked numbers are no longer accurate. Most Democrats in that poll best Trump in a head-to-head matchup, with Biden leading the current President by ten points.

“Trump trails the Democrat in each of the possible 2020 head-to-head matchups tested and never gets above 41 percent support. At the same time, none of the challengers hits 50 percent,” Fox News reports. “Biden tops Trump by 10 points (49-39 percent) and Sanders is up by nine (49-40) — both of these leads are outside the poll’s margin of error. [Sen. Elizabeth] Warren (D-MA) has a two-point edge over Trump (43-41).”

    • Jeanie Woodward says:

      I agree NBC is a LIBERALS love . All BS .

    • JUDITH LIAN says:

      I do not believe this poll for one minute. The majority of America is not that stupid! I still think much of Hillary’s votes last time were from illegals so that would make up the so called popular vote she had. I still find it hard to believe that people would consider themselves a Democrat when you take a good look at what their party is all about. No, this is a fake poll

    • Bull crap!!! LMAO!!!

  • Bonnie says:

    Look at the fact that President Trump isn’t campaigning yet. Please don’t forget what happened in 2016 the polls were predicting that Hillary would win by a landslide, yet that wasn’t what happened.

  • HokieBird, u got that right.

  • Bernie says:

    BS seems to be the mode of influence in this coming election and with no data being provided to justify these old polls I believe the comment should be ” don’t believe everything you read!”

  • Bob says:

    The polls are designed to give the secular progressive liberals some hope, like they did in 2016.

    You have to be a special kind of stupid to vote for any of the Democratic candidates.

  • Dolores Herrmann says:

    Hey, youngsters, we’ve had enough dunce presidents. We don’t need anymore.

  • Diana says:

    Sorry don’t believe any polls look at 2016 Trump was always behind, so don’t believe the polls, I will say the true American People have to get out and vote for Trump not set at home like they did the last election that allowed the vile socialist communist, muslums, atheist,democratics, win the congress that should have never happened, and some I do believe where not elected just put in, just like obama he never really won any election, was put in and nobody fought it what a mistake we the people made on that one, we can Never allow the democratics to fix, distort, cheat, fake votes anywhere any place in America anymore they have proven they are Traitors against America and our Constitution as Written, which is Treason, when anyone tries to Change, Distort, Twist, Ignore, Destroy OUR CONSTITUTION as WRITTEN they are Treasonist must be held accountable that includes, politicians, judges, governors, mayors, all officials that work in Our government, State and Federal .

    • Carol E McCarthy says:

      Exactly!! And may I ask who they count in the so called polls? Because I have been a registered voter for 50 years and no one has ever polled me!!

    • Sherry says:

      Diana, I could not have put that better myself. All of the MUCK we have in our government today and in our society came out strong and bold during obama’s ‘reign’. He absolutely placed muslims, gays, communists and anyone he wanted in positions of authority. Now, every time I turn around, there is a muslim in their friggin’ religious cloaks hiding their identity, gays and same-sex parents in my child’s cartoons, shows, movies and even on commercials (needless to say, we do not have cable any more)! Our society has declined in so many ways since he was president. Even racial tension has become like it was 40-50 years ago. I pray that President Trump wins this upcoming election and I believe he will, without a doubt. Believe and claim it, because God is good to his children, always. Love others always, but do never accept the ‘norm’ in this world.

  • Don't Believe It says:

    People are STILL looking at the polls? Will they NEVER learn?

  • Terry says:

    Here we go with the FAKE polls again it’s propaganda to help the liberals anyone who would vote for Biden the pervert needs their head examined!!

  • Freedom fighter says:

    Because polls are never wrong. HAHAHAHAHAHA

  • LaB says:

    If Right Wing Folks wants to pretend that they are representing conservatives, they need to quit publishing the left wing propaganda. Polls have lost any validity in the past 3 years, and only an idiot would swallow this nonsense. EVERYONE knows that the MSM continually skew their sampling of the population in order to obtain the results they want. This is quite disappointing and rather juvenile of Right Wing Folks to even put this trash forward at all. Slow day perhaps? Some of us will just not bother to follow you any longer as we get enough of a barrage fake news as it is. I, for one, find your usefulness terminated. Just fuel for the morons.

  • Clymer says:

    If Creepy Joe is leading, he’s being backed by Creepy People who think Joe’s actions are acceptable.

  • Carol says:

    OMG that is such BS, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are too Old and Senile to be in any kind of office. They both need to retire and sit and smoke a pipe on a rocking chair.
    I think we need to watch the voting places very very close, in the Mid Term elections there was some dirty underhanding shit going on by the DemoRats. And I am sure they will try that again. Republicans need to take back the house, and vote out all the crooked DemoRats.

    • MReeves says:

      Yes you should have to have certified verified birth certificate to get a ID to vote. Have that ID scanned at door to even get in. This last election was low life Democratic BS

  • Terry says:

    If you listen to the liberal media they will have Biden president before the election please support Trump unless you want socialism because that’s what the democrats want!!

  • Jamey says:

    Same Polls that had Hildabeast running away with the election?

  • Don says:

    No pollster asked me, but I haven’t changed my mind. In fact, in 2016, I voted for him reluctantly. In 2020. I am voting for Trump con gusto.

  • Russ says:

    The democratic liars pole the crats will try to rig another election.

  • MReeves says:

    NoID No Vote

  • Clymer67 says:

    When you think Creepy Joe keep in mind the mess Obama made. Birds of a feather flock together.

  • IMJustice says:

    Here we go with “polls” again!

  • Tom Ozment says:

    Must be the same polls that had Hillary in a rout.

  • coachpan says:

    What a crock…!

    Biden will be lucky to win the D primary !

  • Nell says:

    Yeah, we know all about how accurate polls are. 😏 We all remember nearly EVERYBODY predicting Hillary’s landslide win against President Trump. I never listen to ANY polls because they are so flawed. Predicting anything from horse races, the super bowl, Oscar wins, to presidential races are fool’s games. If you want to see some real evidence of support, look at the turnout at the campaign rallies. There are always too many people to accommodate at Mr. Trump’s rallies because he has that much support! Now let’s get those picture voter ID’s and security at the voting places in place before the 2020 election so these cheating democrats can’t fix the election they so desperately want. And no voting allowed for 16 year old children, illegals, and dead people! And you only get to vote once!

  • Joe says:

    Hillary was polling ahead of Trump by 17 points at this point in the race in 2015. Trump hasn’t started campaigning yet, will do so this week. Watch his numbers jump up in a couple of months. Lastly, Hillary was polling ahead of Trump by ten points three weeks before the election in ’16 – then the “silent majority” stepped up to the plate. Don’t forget about those people.

  • DIVINE JUSTICE says:

    ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE WHEN YOU CONSIDER *BIDEN* & ALL HIS DARK PERVERSIONS & HI LEVEL INVOLVEMENT WITHIN THE “DEEP STATE” & CORRUPTION WITHIN THE (OBAMA / CLINTON ISLAMIC CALIPHATE) DEDICATED TO THE *NWO* OVERTHROW FOR *8 DIABOLICAL YRS.* !!!

  • Dragonfly43 says:

    God help us if the idiot Biden gets elected! Trump 2020!!!

  • Pat says:

    Who cares about tolls 17 months before the election? Biden hasn’t even been named as President Trump’s contender. These same pollsters were projecting a landslide for Hillary right up to election day in 2016. We all know how well that worked out for them. A visual poll tends to be more factual. President Trump can fill up a 20,000 seat arena and still have 50 000 people standing in the parking lot watching his speech on jumbotrons. Biden and Bernie can hardly fill up a small park. The media never pans their cameras out to show how many people are attending a Democrat contender’s rally. My eyes won’t lie to me. The media and the DNC will

  • AnnS says:

    The same polls that told us HRC was going to win in 2016?

  • Tom Leon Nufable says:

    Haw! Haw! Haw! A Mega Ton BS! In 2016 All Polls said Killary will (not would) win by Landslide! Who WON BY LANDSLIDE? TRUMP! “We The People” (of the USA) are not Idiots and Bird Poop Brains!

  • gizmo says:

    Yeah and the polls had Hillary winning! Don’t believe polls. Especially when they are democratic polls.

  • fred H SMITH says:

    HILERY WAS A SHOO IN LMAO…. GOT TO HAVE THE RIGHT VOTES FROM THE RIGHT PLACES,,TRUMP HAS THIS,,, POLLS RE NUMBERS PULLES OUT OF SOMEONES ASS

  • Gerald Cline says:

    Yeah…? Are those the same polls that showed Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election by a landslide…?!?!?

  • RP says:

    The media always put out polls that a GOP candidate is behind by double digits, at the first. It may continue, up until the election. Trump was behind double digits to Hillary on the day of the election. She had a 99% chance of being elected. The left threw out all the possible scenarios of how Trump would never win the election. He fooled them all.

  • CJ says:

    Don’t believe this! Deja vu, when Trump was lagging behind Killery. Trump gets 250 people waiting to cheer him on when he lands at some airport and thousands at rallies. Biden can’t get 250 to show up at his, so how is he leading polls? ! Plus, he sounds like a flip flopping, blithering idiot when he talks. #Trump2020

  • ProfRGP says:

    If these polls are accurate and presage defeating Mr. Trump in 2020, then dumb Americans deserve what they get, including the carnage that generally follows the election of today’s Democrats (socialistic policies that further enfeeble the economy and country as a whole).

  • howard buckley says:

    i say bullshit trump is way in the lead dumb-a-rats=as+holes have no way passed trump the AS+HOLES=DUMB-A-RATS ARE JUST TRYING TO PULL ANOTHER ELECTION OFF BY CHANGING THE NUMBERS LIKE THEY DID LAST ELECTION,

  • You have to ask yourself why would a polling company that takes private polls for various politicians and political entities ruin their own business by destroying their reputation for confidentiality, credibility and honesty? They wouldn’t is the answer, unless their motive for running a profitable business was overshadowed by a desire or payoff to get Trump. Regardless of their reason “to get” Trump their apparent motive also casts doubt on the honesty of what they reported. It’s not a huge leap for someone who is willing to destroy his business just to get Trump to someone who would lie about polling results to get Trump.

  • Del says:

    We don’t see even half the crowds at Bidens gatherings as we do at Trumps..
    The same thing happened when Hillary was running and the FAKE NEWS would have to pay people to show up..
    There is no Democrat that can beat Trump at this time and the Democrat Party is in Shambles with so many going in different Directions..
    They have No Platform to run on that is solid that will bring Our Country together and they have proven that time after time ..
    They have No interest in helping the DREAMERS or any Illegals, their whole intent is to Obstruct and Bankrupt Our Country with the supporting of people from Other Countries with Our Tax Dollars ..
    The people in CONGRESS ALL took an Oath to Protect and Defend AGAINST Foreign and Domestic, NOT an Oath to Protect People that come here ILLEGALLY into Our Country FROM OTHER Countries.. Those people are FOREIGN TO OUR COUNTRY..

  • Panhead says:

    I agree with most every reply/commit here. Mainstream media (fake media) has filled their syringe with hocus pocus magic, blowing smoke continuing to dismay their remaining potlicker audience. Hey No Collusion no Russian connection! but many don’t want to believe the truth. There are a good many who will never see the light mainly because the smoke is all they will ever know, its their security blanket. Fake News Knows a good many people that hear a lie enough from different sources can only be certain their lie is their truth. Trump is way ahead of sleepy creepy Joe and the decisions are already conformed (set in Stone) in the minds of the American Patriots and they will win to MAGA. America will play the Trump Card.

  • Debi Lovell says:

    Those same polls said he would lose to Hillary, blah blah blah…………

  • Divinggets says:

    For anyone who actually believes these ‘polls’, I have a great offer for you! I live over here in Brooklyn, and I have a bridge that I can sell you for a very reasonable price. But you have to act now because this deal won’t last long! This bridge is in mint condition, located in a great neighborhood, near all transportation, and just waiting for someone to come along and just snatch it right up! So if you believe the fake news media polls you’re just the person I want to hear from! Call me. Let’s make this happen!
