Former President Donald Trump is continuing to poll well in the most important election-deciding states, according to a new survey, while his likely opponent, President Joe Biden, once again became the subject of online mocking after another video went viral showing him struggling to speak.

Trump continues to lead in the majority of 2024 swing states while remaining tied in Wisconsin, according to polling data from Cook Report/BSG/GS Strategy Group released on Thursday. The survey aligns closely with multiple previous polls suggesting that Trump is likely to win reelection in November easily.

Trump holds an outside-the-margin lead in several states:

  1. Pennsylvania: Trump +3
  2. Nevada: Trump +8
  3. Michigan: Trump +3
  4. North Carolina: Trump +8
  5. Arizona: Trump +4
  6. Wisconsin: Trump =
  7. Georgia: Trump +4

Overall, Trump leads President Joe Biden in swing states by five points. The poll confirmed that the economy was the top concern for Americans. Additionally, 59 percent of voters believe Biden is responsible for controlling inflation and rising costs.

“Candidates who are seen as maybe not as strong on the economy ultimately win an election, like, say, Barack Obama in 2012. But to be losing by this margin, that is unsustainable at this point for an incumbent,” editor-in-chief of the Cook Political Report Amy Walter told MNSBC Thursday morning.

Fifty-six percent of Americans believe that Biden’s economy is in a recession, and a majority blame the president, according to a Harris/Guardian poll released on Wednesday:

  • 55% say Biden’s economy is shrinking
  • 56% say the economy is in a recession
  • 58% blame Biden for the sour economy
  • 72% sense rising costs from an increased rate of inflation
  • 81% of Democrats say “Bidenomics” will have a positive lasting impact

The polling appears to be backed by imperial data. “Working-class voters are unhappy about President Biden’s economy. That may be partly due to the price of their Happy Meals,” Axios’s Hans Nichols wrote.
