Swing states agree: The economy was BETTER OFF under Trump

Undoubtedly, the American economy has taken a downward turn over the past few years, and the one common denominator that most voters are pointing to is Joe Biden.

In a new Bloomberg/Morning Consult survey, swing-state American voters overwhelmingly agreed that the economy and their financial situation were “better off under Trump” by wide margins.

For example, 53 percent of registered voters said they were “better off” with President Trump, while only 33 percent said they were better off with Biden.

This trend toward Trump was reflected among all demographics, as well, including men (55 percent), women (50 percent), and GenZ voters (47 percent).

Importantly, swing-state voters also indicated that the economy was their number one issue when deciding who to vote for in the 2024 presidential election.

Immigration was the second most important issue, “democracy” was the third, and Social Security and Medicare were the fourth. Abortion, climate change, and crime clocked in as the very least important concerns for voters in battleground states this year.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, among those surveyed, six out of 10 voters held Joe Biden responsible for the ongoing border crisis (61 percent).

Trump also holds a 22-point lead over Biden regarding voters’ trust in who could handle the immigration issues at the border better, per the survey’s findings.

Not only do voters in swing states affirm that life in America was generally much better on Trump, the 45th president is polling robustly ahead of Biden in general election polling ahead of November’s showdown.

Bloomberg/Morning Consult’s poll showed that Trump leads Biden in North Carolina, Nevada, Wisconsin, Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, indicating favorable winds for his 2024 reelection campaign this fall.
