New polling shows President Joe Biden losing to former president Donald Trump in swing states.
Trump is up 9 points over Biden in Pennsylvania, according to an Emerson College poll conducted early this month. In Michigan this month, a poll commissioned by an in-state consulting firm had Trump up 7 points over Biden.
The Pennsylvania data show Trump with 45 percent support to Biden’s 36 percent. Eleven percent of respondents said they will vote for someone else and 8 percent are undecided.
In Michigan, Trump had 42 percent support to Biden’s 35. Twenty percent of those asked said they’ll vote for someone else and 3 percent declined to pick a candidate.
A Fox News poll this month shows Biden with a 1 point lead over Trump in a general election matchup.
The numbers come as Democratic lawmakers and commentators have dismissed polls showing Biden performing poorly against Trump. Progressive pundit Cenk Uygur this week announced he is challenging Biden in the primary, claiming the president is destined to lose in the general.
