Former President Donald Trump has emerged with a slight advantage over President Joe Biden in Michigan, as per the latest Emerson College Polling/The Hill survey released on Monday.

According to the poll results, Trump leads Biden by a narrow margin of 46% to 44%, with 10% of voters still undecided in this crucial battleground state as reported by Newsmax on Monday, February 26, 2024.

Despite Trump’s lead, the gap between the two candidates has been narrowing, with Biden’s support in Michigan increasing by 3 percentage points since the previous month, while Trump’s backing has slightly decreased by 1 percentage point.

Spencer Kimball, the executive director of Emerson College Polling, highlighted vital gender disparities among Michigan voters, with male voters favoring Trump by a margin of 12 points (53% to 41%), while female voters lean towards Biden by 5 points (46% to 41%).

Additionally, Michigan’s independent voters showed a preference for Trump over Biden by a margin of 43% to 37%.

The release of the poll comes just a day before the state’s Republican and Democrat primaries, adding significance to the findings.

However, concerns are mounting among Democrats regarding Biden’s support for Israel in the conflict against Hamas, particularly among Michigan’s sizable Arab American and Muslim populations, as well as progressives in general, according to insights from The Hill.

Observers are closely monitoring the level of support for a campaign urging voters to choose “uncommitted” in the Democrat primary as a form of protest against Biden’s policies.

Further insights from the survey reveal that in the state’s Democrat primary, 75% of respondents back Biden, while 9% plan to vote “uncommitted,” and an additional 5% express support for Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips, Biden’s primary challenger with long-shot odds.

When considering third-party candidates in the general ballot, Trump maintains a lead over Biden by 42% to 39%, with Robert F. Kennedy capturing 6% of the vote, and Cornel West and Green Party candidate Jill Stein each securing 1%.

Economic concerns were at the forefront for 30% of voters, with immigration, democracy, and healthcare following closely behind as top issues of importance at 13%, 12%, and 10%, respectively.

An average of polls tracked by The Hill and Decision Desk HQ indicates that Trump currently holds a 3 percentage point lead over Biden in Michigan.

The survey, conducted between Feb. 20-24 among 1,000 registered voters, has a credibility interval (similar to a margin of error) of plus or minus 3 points.
