Trump And Biden Clash On One Issue In Swing States

May 31, 2024

Former President Donald Trump is narrowly leading President Joe Biden in six of seven key swing states because of his position on one issue: inflation.

A poll released Thursday found that a small majority of Americans believe that Trump would be better at controlling inflation than Biden, according to the LA Times. “Trump’s overall advantage in the seven states stands at 47% to 44%, a margin that grows to 5 percentage points in a five-way contest that includes independent candidates Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West and Green Party nominee Jill Stein, according to the Swing State Survey, overseen by the Cook Political Report and two polling firms,” the outlet wrote.

Trump’s lead in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania was described as “modest” by the outlet, while Nevada and North Carolina voters hold a wider favor for Trump. In Wisconsin, the two candidates are tied with 45% each, the poll found. (LEARN MORE: Biden’s Economy Brings Misery To Men)

Concerned About High Prices

The LA Times wrote that “many voters remain preoccupied with high prices.” High consumer prices are hurting all Americans, particularly the already disadvantaged. A Politico-Morning Consult poll taken in April found that most Americans are unaware and unimpressed by President Joe Biden’s economy during his time in office, despite the mainstream media trying to boast his “achievements.” (LEARN MORE: Taking Back Control: Your Guide to Navigating Rising Car Insurance Premiums)

“At this point … the defining issue for this contest is a more traditional one: the economy,” Cook Political Report editor-in-chief Amy Walter wrote in the poll analysis. “While abortion remains a strong issue for Democrats, President Biden’s advantage on the issue isn’t strong enough to offset Trump’s overall strength on bringing down the cost of living … Biden’s overall weak position, combined with voters’ deep worry about rising costs, is currently limiting his ability to make the case that Trump is the bigger risk.”
