The latest polling of six key battleground states shows President Trump holding on to his working-class base against former Vice President Joe Biden.
After Biden announced his presidential bid, WPA Intelligence conducted a poll of Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Texas, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin and found Trump leading overall in those six states by a margin of 46 to 44 percent, reports the Washington Examiner.
In the individual states, Trump leads in four: Wisconsin (46 to 42 percent), Florida (48 to 44 percent), Iowa (49 to 44 percent), and Texas (49 to 42 percent).
In Pennsylvania, Trump is down only by a single point (45 to 46 percent). In Michigan, he is down three points (42 to 45 percent).
Within the poll, Trump is only down three with independents (40 to 43 percent). But among blue-collar voters (no college education with income under $75,000), Trump is up 26 points, and that is one group of voters Biden is counting on to become the next president.
Overall, within all six states, Trump ties Biden for women aged 18-54 (46 percent each) and beats Biden with women 55 and older (46 to 41 percent).
Trump enjoys a ten-point lead with men 18-54 (51 to 41 percent) and a three-point lead with men over 55 (47 to 44 percent).
The poll was taken between April 27-30 and surveyed 200 likely voters in each of the six states. No margin of error is available.
The good news for Trump is that he is holding on to his base and winning in several key states.
Whats more, Trump is easily within striking distance (or ahead) in the states he will need to win re-election against an opponent (Biden) who has not been tested yet, who has barely engaged in battle,..

Well, the best way to keep working is to get rid of the Democrats all together, including that sick pedophile Joe Biden.
This scares the check pant blue bloods in the GOPe just as much as it scares the Democrats.
Most people get it: better to have us all working than all of us getting free things.
Trump is actually delivering on his promises.
Biden has just been talking a good game since 1984.
Trump needs to remind Americans that the Dems decided to drop white working class as “their base” in favor of minority and every other special interest group on the planet!
Joe is just now coming to realize this was a major f-up! Trying to pander like crazy now!
well yeah....... working class workers prefer jobs
Well perhaps it would be fitting to bring in another blue collar guy to help gropin’ joe out. Useless springsteen. He’s a regular kind of guy who would never use tax loopholes.
Good. People want to work and Trump’s policies created a good environment for job creation.
Joe Biden peaked the day he announced. He is already reminding people why his first two campaigns fizzled. The NY Times just ran a story celebrating the fact that he has yet to say something especially stupid. Quite the high bar they’ve set.
Although the sample seems small and there is no published margin of error, the fact that the results in all six states are so close lends credence.
Biden can’t survive a Trump debate.
Biden cant survive a Trump debate.
It won’t even be close. I think Biden will stroke out in the first 20 minutes.
And that is exactly what he should say the first time he gets a chance.
Read my lips, folks, and bank on it. Democrat Joe Biden is going nowhere politically. He is toast...no, terrible burnt toast. Shucks, he may even get to join Obama, & Clinton in “Orange Jump Suit Land”!!!
If he had any brains & smarts at all, he would withdraw from the 2020 POTUS race like right now!!! Shucks no one is attending his POTUS rallies, except the press....50 Supporters and 150 Press Folks. “SAD”!!!
And they have to poll to discover Trump wins out?
People just better actually get out and vote in the real election.
Wolf Blitzed: "This just in--our CNN poll shows 60% of Americans think Joe Biden won the debate, at least for the 20 minutes he was standing"
