More state numbers have leaked from the Republican internal poll that showed Donald Trump losing in nearly all swing states, several by very large margins.
The Poll was taken March 13-28 and was so upsetting to Trump that he ordered aides to lie about it.
Just two days before the president is set to kick off his bid for re-election, a top adviser said on Sunday that the campaign was cutting ties with three of its five pollsters to prevent further disclosure of survey data.
The polling showed Mr. Trump behind former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. in several key battleground states, including by double digits in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. The results were confirmed to The New York Times by advisers to Mr. Trump, but when they became public, he called them “fake polls.”
Internal polling became a sensitive subject last week after Trump blew up at several campaign officials, telling them the numbers they had were incorrect and not an accurate reflection of how he's polling throughout the country, one person familiar with his reaction told CNN. He has become fixated on the numbers in recent days, asking for regular updates or newer polls.
Normally, 10 week old polls don’t merit so much attention, but this is a poll the Trump campaign paid for and is described as “expansive” so it is presumably more comprehensive than the usual polls sponsored by a news organizations.
The campaign apparently polled various Democratic candidates, but since Joe Biden polled the strongest against Trump, those are the numbers that have been leaked.
Bottom line numbers have not been leaked for every state, so some states only have margins. Supposedly, 17 states were polled, and we now have some numbers from 12 of them.
|North Carolina||43%||51%||Biden +8%|
The numbers reported from the poll by ABC News on 6/14 vary from these numbers in some states, but they all look very bad for Trump.
The polling data, revealed for the first time by ABC News, showed a double-digit lead for Biden in Pennsylvania 55-39 and Wisconsin 51-41 and had Biden leading by seven points in Florida. In Texas, a Republican stronghold, the numbers showed the president only leading by two points.
If these kind of numbers were to hold up, Democrats could well gain control of the Senate and many state legislatures. Most legislatures will get to redistrict in 2022.

Biden tops Trump by 10 points (49-39 percent) and Sanders is up by nine (49-40) — both of these leads are outside the poll’s margin of error. Warren has a two-point edge over Trump (43-41), and Harris (42-41) and Buttigieg (41-40) are up by one (within the margin of error).
