A poll of this key swing state had every Democrat running for their lives
Like all Presidential elections the 2020 contest will come down to a handful of key states.
One battleground state stands out as the bell weather that will determine the outcome this November.
And a brand new poll of this key swing state had every Democrat running for their lives.
In 2016, Wisconsin was the first state from the fabled “blue wall” – states that voted Democrat in every Presidential election since 1988 – that flipped to red and made it clear that Donald Trump would win the Presidency.
Ever since Election Day 2016, Democrats made it their mission to win back Wisconsin as the lynchpin of their strategy to take back the White House.
Hopes of a Democrat sweep in 2020 rose when Democrats won the Gubernatorial election in Wisconsin during the 2018 midterms.
But that win was fool’s gold.
A brand new Quinnipiac Poll out of Wisconsin shows President Trump leading every Democrat challenger in Wisconsin by massive 7 to 11 point margins.
Trump 50% (+11)
Trump 51% (+10)
Trump 49% (+8)
Trump 49% (+8)
Trump 50% (+7)
Trump 49% (+7)

If Donald Trump carries Wisconsin he can afford to lose Michigan and Pennsylvania and still cross the 270 Electoral College vote threshold.
But voting patterns in one state tend to flow to other similarly situated states.
While Quinnipiac’s poll found Trump trailing the Democrats in Michigan and Pennsylvania, a scenario under which Trump won Wisconsin by a significant amount would likely translate to a Trump win in other industrial Midwestern states.
