[Ed. – Or maybe it’s because of impeachment.]
President Donald Trump is beating all Democratic primary frontrunners in three key battleground states despite the ongoing impeachment inquiry, according to a new poll.
The latest survey by Republican public affairs firm Firehouse Strategies and Optimus puts the commander-in-chief ahead of his would-be Democratic challengers by significant margins with likely voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
All three states voted marginally in favour of Trump over his rival and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, with Michigan electing him by a margin of just 0.3 percentage points.
Firehouse Strategies’ latest quarterly polling of the battleground states shows that history could repeat itself in 2020, with Trump beating leading Democratic primary candidate Joe Biden by five points among likely voters in the state.
