Former President Donald Trump’s campaign continues to get good news despite the Biden administration’s continued legal assault against him.

Trump has managed to pull even with President Joe Biden in Democrat-run Michigan, a state Trump won in 2016 but lost to Biden in 2020 by about 154,000 votes. The vast majority of Michigan counties went to Trump but the urban areas swung heavily to Biden.

According to an Emerson College Polling survey released over the weekend, Trump and Biden are at 44 percent, but when Green Party candidate Cornell West is tossed into the mix, Trump edges Biden 43 percent to 41 percent, with West garnering 4 percent.

“Another four percent back someone else, while eight percent are undecided. The poll also shows Trump dominating the GOP primary field,” Breitbart News reported, citing the survey.

The outlet added: “West’s candidacy as a radical progressive is causing concern among liberals for the same reasons highlighted in the poll. Many fear that his presence in the race could potentially harm Biden’s chances and boost the chances of Trump or another Republican candidate in a general election.”

Some far-left Democrats have openly voiced their fears.

“I think he has a very long record of service and academic thought leadership,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said about West in an interview with The Hill.

“I think just right now, given the Electoral College, it’s very difficult to square the very real threat of a Republican presidency … [with] the risk of giving up the very small margin of electoral votes needed to ensure that President Biden wins,” she added.

Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) added: “The stakes are too high this year, especially if Trump is the nominee. I think everybody, including the most progressive elements of our country, need to protect our democracy by stopping Donald Trump and supporting Joe Biden.”

Interesting that they talk about “protecting democracy” while Biden is prosecuting his number one political foe, like a dictator would in a banana republic.

That said, Trump continues to dominate the GOP field, and by a lot. In the Emerson poll, he is 48 points ahead of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in Michigan alone and leads him by nearly as much in several other recent surveys.

Last month, a one-time GOP Senate candidate said he believes that Trump is “better positioned” to win a huge swing state next year than he was in 2020.

Former Pennsylvania Republican candidate for Senate Sean Parnell told Breitbart News ahead of Trump’s rally in Erie, Pa., that the GOP is closing the voter registration gap with Democrats in the state, which will make the former president’s path to victory next year easier than two years ago.

Breitbart noted: “A Pennsylvania Administration of Voter Registration 2022 Annual Report found that Republicans have increased their voter registration, while Democrats have lost voters.”

The report said:

Since 2018, the number of voters registered as members of the Democratic Party decreased, the number of voters registered as members of the Republican Party increased, and the number of voters who chose to be unaffiliated or registered with a non-major party increased. Voter roll numbers adjusted unevenly across the Commonwealth; the net changes ranged from a registrant increase of 2.76% in Chester County to a registrant decrease of 9.60% in Indiana County.

“The state, technically, by the numbers, is trending more Republican,” Parnell said. “One could make the argument that, Pennsylvania, in 2024, will be more favorable for President Trump than it was in 2020.”

An early July survey found that Trump was also polling strongly against Biden in other swing states.
