The democratic presidential nominee is consistently holding up his lead in two crucial states of Michigan and Wisconsin as per the new surveys released by the New York Times/Siena College poll on Monday. The two Midwestern battleground states played a vital role in Donald Trump’s victory against Hillary Clinton four years ago. Although President Trump wants to repeat the same feat this time, the reality looks quite the opposite for him, as he trails the former vice president in both the states. The New York Times/Siena College poll reveals that 51 percent of the voters support Joe Biden in Wisconsin, a good 10 points lead against the Republican incumbent.
The former vice president increased his lead by five percentage points than the previous Times/Siena poll of the Wisconsin state conducted last month. At that time, Biden had 48 percent of voters’ support compared to 43 percent for Trump. The New York Times/Siena College poll predicts a similar story in Michigan as well. Forty-Eight percent of the likely voters supported Biden, and only 40 percent want Trump to continue as the President. With a healthy 8 points lead, Biden looks to consolidate the state on Election Day. Lead in both the states is also a sign of improvement for Biden on his recent public polling averages in the two crucial swing states. Biden holds the 6.7 percentage point lead over Trump in general election polling as per the RealClearPolitics average of Michigan, conducted from September 14 to October 9. The same poll in Wisconsin showed Biden is ahead of Trump by 5.5 percentage points.
Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin are the part of Great Lakes states, which immensely helped Trump in the Electoral College victory in 2016. Although all the three states were a mixed bag a few months ago, they are now leaned towards the Democratic nominee. The Times/Siena poll in Michigan took place between October 6 and October 11 with a sample size of 614 likely voters and 789 likely voters in Wisconsin. The error margin in Wisconsin is plus or minus 4 points and 4.6 percentage points in Michigan. Pumped up with the poll figures, Joe Biden said - “the only he could lose the elections to President Trump was through chicanery.” Biden also admitted that he would accept the election result irrespective of the outcome.
