JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

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.
