Former President Donald Trump is leading President Joe Biden in a hypothetical 2024 Michigan matchup, a Blueprint Polling survey released this week revealed.
The survey, taken February 1-4, 2022, among 632 voters, found Trump with an edge over Biden in the Great Lake State, besting him 40.4 percent to Biden’s 38.2, over one year into Biden’s presidency.
The survey found 13.4 percent of voters remaining undecided. According to the findings, “Trump leads with both those who say they are definitely voting and those who are probably voting, with undecideds and third party choices growing to a combined 36.8% among probable voters.”
Notably, over one-third of black voters say they are undecided. Additionally:
- Trump holds a 4.9% lead among non-Hispanic White voters.
- Trump leads by 4% among voters with a college degree.
- Trump leads by 1% among those without a degree.
The survey’s margin of error is +/- 3.9 percent:
