New Poll Shows Trump Ahead Of Biden In The Important Battleground State Of Pennsylvania

President Donald Trump is ahead of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the important battleground state of Pennsylvania, according to a Restoration PAC poll released on Thursday.

Poll: Trump Has a Substantial Lead Over Biden in the Keystone State

The poll, which was taken May 1-13, 2020, among 600 likely voters in Pennsylvania, shows Trump ahead of Biden, 50.2 percent to 45.5 percent. This is substantial gap, reflecting a 4.7 percent jump from the previous survey.


Doug Truax, Restoration PAC president and founder, said that the Trump lead could be a result of the backlash over Gov. Tom Wolf’s strict lockdown orders, which bans several counties from reopening their economies, causing much friction among many Pennsylvanians.

“Definitely seemed to be some backlash in Pennsylvania against the virus shutdown orders and a confidence that President Trump can resurrect the economy,” Truax stated.

Trump Shares Poll Results

President Trump didn’t hesitate to share the Restoration PAC poll results.


The most encouraging poll findings for Trump were in Pennsylvania. Restoration PAC also polled 600 likely voters in the battleground states of Michigan and Wisconsin. Biden was ahead in both states, having an 8.8 percent advantage in Michigan and lead by 9.1 percent in Wisconsin.

The margin of error for the poll is +/- 3 percent.

Is 2020 Shaping Up to Be 2016 All Over Again?

Recall that in 2016, Trump beat Hillary Clinton in all three battleground states–Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

Clinton at the time did not choose to campaign in these states as much as some reportedly advised, believing they would go blue as they had in previous elections.

President Trump, on the other hand, spent plenty of time in these states that many observers took for granted would fall in the red column.

Many polls also showed Clinton ahead in these battleground states right before the election, so many leftwing pundits thought Hillary had a state like Pennsylvania in the bag.

Needless to say, that isn’t what happened.

Will Joe Biden vs. Donald Trump in 2020 be a replay of 2016 all over again?
