The latest evidence came Tuesday when Politico reported on polling conducted in five swing states
— Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — pitting the former President against current President Joe Biden.
The polling was paid for by the Trump super PAC “Make America Great Again, Again!” which is the real name for the organization. CNN does not typically report partisan polls as they are paid for by, well, partisan candidates.
The data, according to Politico, showed Trump ahead of Biden in each of the states by margins ranging from 3 points (Georgia) to 12 points (Michigan).
The numbers, while clearly encouraging for Trump, are less important than the fact the polling is being conducted at all.
What surveys in those five swing states are clearly meant to make clear — to anyone and everyone considering a run for the 2024 GOP nomination: Trump is the prohibitive favorite in any such race.
