In the battleground state of Michigan, former President Donald Trump appears to be leading against President Joe Biden, as revealed by a recent poll from Spry Strategies. This pattern in Michigan, also known as the Wolverine State, has been consistent for several months, highlighting a significant trend in voter preference.

The poll, which was made public on a Tuesday evening, also uncovered that a considerable number of voters in Michigan support the large-scale deportation of illegal immigrants. When compared directly to Biden, Trump holds a lead with 48 percent of the vote to Biden’s 43.7 percent. Additionally, there’s a notable 8.3 percent of respondents who were either undecided or did not express a preference in this hypothetical electoral scenario.

Even when the race includes independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Trump retains his lead over Biden, albeit with a narrower gap. In this three-way race, Trump garners 43 percent of the support, Biden follows with 39.8 percent, and Kennedy Jr. ranks third with 8.8 percent. A small percentage, 3.8 percent, would opt for a different candidate, while 4.6 percent of likely voters remain undecided, told Yahoo.

The Spry Strategies poll also explored which issues were most important to voters, revealing that economic concerns were paramount. Over one-third of the respondents indicated that the cost of living, accounting for 20.8 percent, or the economy more broadly, at 16.4 percent, were their primary concerns.

Following economic issues, abortion was the second most pressing concern for voters, with 21 percent prioritizing it. Illegal immigration was also a significant issue for 14.6 percent of the voters, reflecting the broader national debate on this topic.

The poll further indicates that a majority, 51.6 percent, of voters believe their families were in a better position regarding “economic security and personal safety” during Trump’s presidency compared to Biden’s tenure. In contrast, 37.1 percent felt they were better off under Biden’s leadership.

Delving deeper into immigration and border concerns, 55.7 percent of likely voters in Michigan describe the current situation at the southern border as reaching a “crisis” level. Another 21.6 percent view it as “a serious problem,” while 14.5 percent consider it “a somewhat serious problem.”

The sentiment towards mass deportation of illegal immigrants is also notably strong among Michigan voters. A significant 43.7 percent “strongly agree” with such measures, and 18.4 percent “somewhat agree.” Opposition to mass deportation stands at just over 30 percent among the voters.

According to the RealClearPolitics polling average, Trump has a 3.4 percent lead in Michigan. This lead is reflected in seven out of the last nine polls included in the average since January, with the remaining two polls showing a tie between Trump and Biden. This particular poll surveyed 709 likely voters in Michigan from March 25 to 28, carrying a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
