Biden beating Trump by double digits; tops 50% in new Michigan poll

Michigan

Joe Biden holds a commanding lead over Donald Trump in the battle for Michigan’s electoral votes and hits a major milestone.

That’s according to the results of an exclusive new poll out today.

The poll by EPIC-MRA shows the former vice president with an 11 point lead in the Great Lakes State.

Biden has the support of 51% of likely voters, while Trump has 40%.

Jo Jorgenson got 2% in the poll. Six percent were undecided or refused to answer.

Crossing that 50% mark is an important threshold for any candidate – particularly in Michigan. It’s a battleground state that President Trump won back in 2016.

Whoever wins this state in November will get 16 electoral votes.

The poll surveyed 600 people between July 25th and July 30th and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4%.

Of course, the election is still 88 days away, and a lot can happen between now and then.
