Biden edges out DeSantis in Wisconsin, crushes Trump in the Dairy State: poll
The general election data is sure to reinforce DeSantis's argument that he is more electable than Trump.
President Joe Biden holds a narrow lead in Wisconsin over potential Republican challenger Ron DeSantis but appears poised to easily claim the state should former President Donald Trump win the Republican nomination.
In the latest Marquette University poll, the incumbent commander-in-chief led the Florida governor 49% to 47% in the Dairy State. In a rematch with Trump, however, that lead soared to 9%, with Biden taking 52% support to the Republican's 43%.
Biden's edge against either candidate in Wisconsin is particularly striking given he remains underwater with the state's residents. Just 45% of Wisconsinites back Biden in terms of job approval while 53% disapproved of him.
The general election data is sure to reinforce DeSantis's argument that he is more electable than Trump, though the pair are currently in a neck-and-neck race for the primary contest. Trump claimed the support of 31% of Republicans compared to 30% who backed DeSantis. No other Republican candidate took double digits.
