Joe Biden is beating President Donald Trump in Rust Belt states that were critical to Trump’s victory in 2016, according to a new poll.
Biden leads Trump by wide margins in both Michigan and Pennsylvania, according to a Fox News poll released on Thursday evening. Fifty percent of voters in Pennsylvania said they would vote for Biden, compared with 39 percent for Trump. That represents a drop for the president from April, when 42 percent of voters said they would choose Trump, compared with Biden’s consistent 50 percent.
Michigan saw similar, though slightly narrower, results, with 49 percent of voters favoring Biden, compared with 40 percent supporting Trump. That figure has changed only slightly since April, when 41 percent of respondents in the state supported Trump.
