Trump tops Biden in bat­tle­ground Penn­syl­va­nia after los­ing there in 2020: Poll

For­mer Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has shot ahead of Pres­i­dent Joe Biden in the bat­tle­ground state of Penn­syl­va­nia by almost 10 per­cent­age points in a hypo­thet­i­cal 2024 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.
In an Emer­son Col­lege Polling sur­vey of Penn­syl­va­nia vot­ers, Trump leads his oppo­nent with 45% to Biden’s 36%. Eleven per­cent of respon­dents opt­ed for “some­one else,” while 8% were unde­cid­ed.

Biden, despite call­ing Delaware home, often recalls his Penn­syl­va­nia roots. The 80-year-old was born in Scran­ton, Penn­syl­va­nia, before mov­ing with his fam­i­ly rough­ly 10 years lat­er.
Penn­syl­va­nia was one of the five states that flipped from Trump in 2016 to Biden in 2020, along with Michi­gan, Ari­zona, Wis­con­sin, and Geor­gia.
It has also been a fre­quent stop for Biden in both offi­cial and cam­paign capac­i­ties. His fre­quent trips to the state, how­ev­er, don’t appear to be boost­ing his elec­toral pos­ture.
Trump has spent rel­a­tive­ly lit­tle time on the cam­paign trail com­pared to his Repub­li­can oppo­nents and the time he has devot­ed to his 2024 bid has been focused on the Mid­west.
