The Detroit Free Press reports the latest polling in the vital swing state of Michigan has some bad news for Donald Trump.
Two weeks ago, EPIC-MRA of Lansing, a polling firm that does work for the Free Press, released a survey showing former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, leading Trump 53%-41% in Michigan, a 12-point edge.
But a second poll, started on May 31, a day after the first poll began, and concluded a day later than the first poll, on June 4, showed Biden leading Trump 55%-39% in Michigan, a 16-point margin.
The survey had a margin of error of plus/minus 4 points.
The new poll also showed:
• 70% of those surveyed believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. The percentage who believe the U.S. is headed in the right direction fell from 30% to 22%.
• 61% of those surveyed hold a negative view of Trump. The percentage of those with a positive view fell from 42% to 38%.
• 51% said they would vote to replace Trump in November, while those who said they plan to vote to reelect him fell from 38% to 33%.
