Trump voor op Biden in swing states VS

By Duncan Mil

May 14, 2024 - Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden in five crucial battleground states, a new set of polls shows, as young and nonwhite voters express discontent over the economy and war in Gaza.

The New York Times, Siena College and The Philadelphia Inquirer surveys found that Trump was ahead among registered voters in a head-to-head matchup against Biden in five of six key states: Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia and Pennsylvania.

Biden led among registered voters in only one battleground state, Wisconsin.

The Biden campaign has spent tens of millions of dollars in advertisements across the battleground states, but the polls show little indication that this has helped Biden or damaged Trump.

The findings reveal widespread dissatisfaction with the state of the economy among many voters.

“It is concerning to me when I keep seeing press come out of the White House where they keep saying the economy is good,” said systems engineer Jacob Sprague, 32.

“That’s really weird because I’m paying more on taxes and more on groceries and more on housing and more on fuel. So that doesn’t feel good.”
