President Joe Biden is trailing behind former President Donald Trump with likely voters in Michigan less than a year out from the 2024 election.
Forty-one percent of 600 likely voters polled in the Great Lakes State support Biden compared to 46 percent who support Trump, an EPIC-MRA of Lansing poll released Saturday found. The margin of error is ±4 percentage points.

“Democrats ought to be aware there is a growing possibility that Donald Trump may become president again,” EPIC-MRA pollster Bernie Porn told the Detroit Free Press. He said support for Biden in the state has eroded since the firm’s last poll in August, when Biden narrowly led Trump 46 percent to 45 percent.
“I think it’s his (Biden’s) age and comparative perceptions of him versus Trump,” Porn said. “People are dismissing the Bidenomics approach — they’re not impressed with that messaging … It could well be very difficult for Biden to do the things needed to recover.”
