The former Vice President leads Trump 50 to 39 per cent in a head-to-head matchup in the United States presidential election sltaed to be held in November, the Quinnipiac University poll showed on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Trump threatened to withhold unspecified federal funds from MI if the state goes ahead with a plan to mail every registered voter an absentee ballot application, allowing every eligible voter to cast a ballot without the physical risks associated with in-person voting during a public health crisis.

"The U.S. has seemingly forgotten that in the past, U.S. leaders have repeatedly and publicly praised China's anti-epidemic work", Zhao said. That's up from the 49 - 41% lead Biden held in an April national poll, but the change is within the margin of error. At best for Team Trump, it says voter confidence in President Trump is shaky.

Trump's job approval rating ticks lower amid the coronavirus outbreak, according to the poll. On a head-to-head question of whom voters trust more to protect Michiganders from the virus, Whitmer beats Trump, 55% to 37%.

Forty-two per cent of voters approve of the job he is doing, while 53 per cent disapprove.

On Trump's response to public health crisis, 41 percent of voters responding to the poll approve while 56 percent disapprove.

The president's approval rating in the Midwest battleground is underwater, with 44% of voters approving of him compared to 51% disapproving, the survey found. Four had voted for Barack Obama, Mr Trump's predecessor, in 2012 - meaning the Democrats will hope to win them back.

"Reopen slowly, even if we are rolling the dice on how it will affect the economy, say three-quarters of American voters".

When it comes to expectations for a second wave of coronavirus infections in the fall, 47% of voters say a second wave is very likely, 40% say it's somewhat likely, and 12% say it's not so likely or not likely at all.
