Trump LEADS Biden by two points in the key swing state of Michigan as eyes turn to voters who will vote against Joe to protest his support for Israel

  • New poll shows Trump with 46 percent to Biden with 44 percent among registered MI voters
  • Michigan voters go to the polls on Tuesday for the Republican and Democratic presidential elections
  • Activists urged Democrats to vote ‘non-committed’ in primaries on Biden’s support for Israel

A new poll shows a razor-thin race between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden in the state of Michigan, as the president faces wrath from progressives angry over his support for Israel as it wages war in Gaza.

The new Emerson College/The Hill survey of Michigan voters shows that 46 percent of voters support Trump, while 44 percent support Biden in a hypothetical matchup. Another 10 percent of voters have not made a decision.

The poll shows that Biden’s support has actually increased by three percentage points since January, while Trump’s support has fallen by one point as he rises toward the Republican nomination.

Michigan is a critical state for either nominee to win the White House. In 2020, Biden won the state by just over 150,000 votes, after Trump won the state by just over 10,000 votes in 2016.

But Biden’s support in the state is wavering among progressives and young people over his support for Israel as the country wages war in Gaza following the Oct. 7 Hamas terror attack.

Michigan voters are heading to the polls on Tuesday to cast their ballots in both the Republican and Democratic presidential primaries. But some activists are encouraging Democrats to vote “uncommitted” instead of for Biden because of his support for financing Israel.

The “Listen to Michigan” movement, which has been pushing for “uncommitted” votes from Michigan Democrats on Biden’s Gaza policies, said it can demonstrate they have Biden’s “margin of victory for re-election.”

Michigan has the highest percentage and number of Arab Americans in the United States at more than 211,000 or 2.1 percent.

More than 40 Democratic elected officials in the state have pledged to vote “uncommitted” in Tuesday’s primary.

Ahead of Tuesday’s Democratic primaries, the new poll showed 75 percent support Biden, while 9 percent plan to vote uncommitted, 5 percent support Dean Phillips and 12 percent are undecided.

The poll found that 28 percent of voters under 30 plan to vote “uncommitted” on Tuesday, which could signal significant trouble for Biden in November as Democrats tend to draw more support from young people as their coalition wants to win.

Israel has long been the United States’ closest ally in the Middle East, and the war has put Biden between a rock and a hard place politically. He has urged Congress to pass a funding package that includes aid for Israel. At the same time, earlier this month he called Israel’s military operation in Gaza “exaggerated.”

As the president faces a political backlash over Israel in Michigan, the group PrimaryPivot, which has focused on keeping Trump out of office, sent more than 260,000 text messages to Michigan voters ahead of the primaries, highlighting on the war in Gaza, warning them not to vote in the elections. Biden could help re-elect Trump.

As we head into the Republican primaries, 69 percent of Republican primary voters support Trump, 20 percent support Nikki Haley, and 11 percent are undecided.

Looking ahead to the potential matchup in the general election, the new poll in Michigan found male voters breaking 53 percent to 41 percent for Trump, while female voters broke 46 percent to 41 percent for Biden.

Independent voters in Michigan also broke for Trump at 43 percent to Biden’s 37 percent.
