Joe Biden TRIPLES His Wisconsin Lead Over Trump in ABC News/Washington Post Survey
Former Vice President Joe Biden has tripled his lead over President Donald Trump in Wisconsin since September, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll.
In a shocking result, the poll shows Biden with a crushing 17-point advantage over Trump in the cheesy stronghold, with 57 percent support to Trump’s 40 percent. That’s an 11-point change from the same poll in September, when Biden led Trump 52 percent to 46 percent.
If accurate, this would be Biden’s widest lead ever in the state, by a lot. His previous record was a 12-point lead in early August, in the normally Trump-friendly Rasmussen poll. There’s also the distinct possibility that the ABC poll is an outlier — although the pollster is rated “A+” by FiveThirtyEight — and the poll’s 4-point margin of error leaves open the possibility that it’s a significantly smaller lead for Biden.
But the poll was conducted as Trump held jam-packed mask-optional rallies in the state despite a surge in coronavirus cases, which could conceivably contribute to such a large swing. Biden also doubled his lead over the same time period in the Reuters/Ipsos poll of Wisconsin, corroborating significant movement in Biden’s direction.
Biden also leads Trump in Michigan by a more reasonable 7 points in the ABC News/Washington Post poll, putting it in the middle of the pack of recent Michigan polls.
