The One Poll That May Strike Panic In The Biden Campaign

Recently, a poll showed that former President Donald Trump was leading President Joe Biden in five battleground states.

The New York Times report put Trump up three points in Pennsylvania, seven in Arizona, seven in Michigan, ten in Georgia, and a staggering 12 points in Nevada. President Biden led Wisconsin by two points.

Conservative analyst Ryan Girdusky reported that Trump is starting to pull away in the Sun Belt, and the Rust Belt will be key.

With that in mind there has been some intriguing political developments Minnesota is emerging as a battleground state. A recent KSTP/Survey USA poll has sparked quite a bit of discussion. The poll shows a narrowing gap between Trump and current President Joe Biden, with just two percentage points separating them.

This is quite a shift considering Minnesota’s longstanding history of voting Democratic in presidential elections — the last time it swung Republican was in 1972.

Trump’s focus on Minnesota isn’t new. He narrowly missed flipping the state in 2016, coming close with 44.9 percent of the vote compared to Hillary Clinton’s 46.4 percent. Since then, he has made it clear that he views Minnesota as a state he can win, planning what he calls a “heavy move” into the state this election cycle.

What happens next is anyone’s guess; remember, this is just a poll. However, after all that has happened, the poll is definitely getting some attention. Remember, polls said there was going to be a red wave in 2022 and it was more of a
