BREAKING: Poll Shows Biden Up 16 Points Over Trump in Michigan


Over 1 million people have reserved tickets to President Trump's MAGA rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Compare that to Joe Biden, who could barely fill a high school gymnasium during the height of the Democratic parties.

Yet…

We're supposed to believe a new poll that shows Biden leading with 16 points over Trump in Michigan.

A poll conducted by EPIC-MRA shows Biden leading Trump 55 to 39 percent in Michigan.

In 2016, Michigan and Pennsylvanue were two states that were part of the fabled "blue wall" that Trump was able to break.

More details on this new poll below:

Some people are finding this poll difficult to believe.

After all, in Detroit, which is extremely liberal, hundreds of Trump supporters threw a boat parade to celebrate their support of the president's 74th birthday.

Michiganders are clearly eager to show their support for President Trump.

But according to The Hill, Biden has a massive 16 point lead over Trump:

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leads President Trump by 16 points in Michigan, according to a new survey.

The latest EPIC-MRA poll, conducted for the Detroit Free Press, finds Biden at 55 percent support and Trump at 39 percent.

The poll was conducted while another EPIC-MRA survey was still underway in Michigan. The first survey found Biden ahead by 12 points. The new poll captures more recent data and includes two additional days.

Seventy percent of Michiganders surveyed said the country is on the wrong track, up from 63 percent in the prior poll.

Sixty-one percent also said they have a negative view of Trump, a 5-point increase, while the percentage of those who have a positive view of the president fell from 42 percent to 38 percent.

EPIC-MRA pollster Bernie Porn attributed the drop to an incident from early June when federal law enforcement personnel clashed with protesters as they sought to clear Lafayette Square in front of the White House so Trump could walk to a nearby church for a photo op.

"Things that happen in the news are what typically cause changes like this and the only thing you can point to that happened in the news was what happened on June 1," Porn told the Free Press. "I attribute the dramatic slide to more saturation of that news coverage."

Trump has been sliding badly in the polls over the past two months amid the economic slowdown brought on by the coronavirus pandemic and the protests that have wracked the nation since the police-involved killing of George Floyd.

The EPIC-MRA survey is the only poll of Michigan to be taken in June at the height of the protests.

Will Michiganders continue to support Joe Biden when they're reminded of the time when Biden cursed out an auto worker?

The auto industry is a huge economic lifeline for the state.

Yet a video when viral earlier this year when Biden insulted the Michigan voter and called him a "liar."

We have a hard time believing that Michiganders will vote for a man who cursed a humble auto worker to his face!

The reality is that we're still early in the campaign season.

Trump is returning to the campaign trail to host rallies so that he can speak straight to the American people without the media filter.

Michigan Democratic leaders don't believe the poll numbers.

The Detroit Times reports that leadership in Michigan is urging the Democratic party not to believe that Joe Biden is in the lead based on what they're seeing:

Two top Michigan Democrats urged caution Monday for supporters of Joe Biden, arguing that backers of the former vice president shouldn't become complacent despite favorable polling ahead of the November election.

During an online event launching an effort called Michigan Women for Biden, U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Dearborn, introduced herself as "Debbie Downer."

“Some people say, ‘Oh, look at the numbers,'" Dingell said. "I don’t believe these numbers.

“And look at what’s happened in five months. The world is upside down and not one of us on this phone call would have predicted that the world will be as it is today. And it is five months from now until November.”

Real Clear Politics currently shows Biden to have a 7.3% lead over President Donald Trump in its average of recent polling in Michigan and an 8.1% average polling lead nationally.

Four years ago, when polling showed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to have leads over Trump, Dingell voiced concerns before Trump became the first Republican presidential nominee to carry Michigan since 1988. Trump won the state by 10,704 votes against Clinton, his closest margin of victory nationally.

“Four years ago, many of you on this phone call thought that I was nuts," Dingell said. "I was in enough communities and heard enough people talking that I was very worried about the outcome of that election.”

Dingell said Democrats should take nothing for granted in 2020.

The online event launching Michigan Women for Biden on Monday included U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Lansing, Attorney General Dana Nessel, U.S. Rep. Brenda Lawrence, D-Southfield, and U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Holly.

The only female member of the Michigan congressional delegate who didn't speak was U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Detroit, who heavily supported U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary.

The Monday event also featured Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who mentioned Dingell and referenced hating seeing numbers showing "double-digit leads."

"We can do this," Whitmer said. "And I believe we are going to be successful but we cannot for one second let our guard down. We cannot for one second make an assumption that Michigan is going to go with Joe Biden."

Whitmer added later: “We don’t want people to get complacent or for people to think showing up in Michigan doesn’t matter. I know Joe Biden gets it. I know he’ll be here."

The Democratic governor also said Biden understands that the COVID-19 crisis "is far from over."

That's exactly what we've been saying on this website for months!

The election cycle is just now beginning.

NATIONAL POLL: Should Ilhan Omar Be IMPEACHED and Removed From Office?

The spotlight has been off of Joe Biden for months as he's hidden in his basement.

Just wait until he returns to the campaign trail, fumbles on television, and has to face-off verbally with President Trump for 2 hours on the debate stage.

Biden has a long way to go to seal the deal.

Meanwhile, the Trump Train continues to gain momentum!
