Former Vice President Joe Biden waves to spectators while attending a commissioning ceremony for the USS Gabrielle Giffords in Galveston, Texas on Saturday, June 10, 2017. The new warship named after Giffords who was wounded during a deadly 2011 shooting, has been put into active service following the ceremony. Giffords told a crowd at the ceremony she was honored the ship will carry her name and the vessel is “strong and tough, just like her crew.” (Stuart Villanueva /The Galveston County Daily News via AP) MORE LESS

President Donald Trump’s team is getting increasingly worried about Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, three states without which Trump would not have been elected in 2016.

According to Politico, the campaign just concluded polling and found that former Vice President Joe Biden is currently leading the President in all three states.

Campaign operatives are particularly concerned after the widespread Republican losses in 2018, and how Trump’s escalating trade war will likely hurt farmers in those places.
