Another Blue Wave Is Brewing As Trump’s Numbers Collapse In 10 Swing States


Donald Trump has done nothing to reach out to swing voters during his presidency, and he appears to be suffering in key battleground states as a result.

As MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow pointed out on Tuesday, Trump is underwater in 10 swing states – including Utah (!) – ahead of next year’s election, and it should have his reelection team deeply concerned.

Trump underwater in...
- Wisconsin (by 10)
- North Carolina (by 9)
- Virginia (by 17)
- Utah (by 3)
- Pennsylvania (by 12)
- Texas (by 1)
- New Hampshire (by 26) (not a typo)
- Michigan (by 11)
- Iowa (by 4)
- Arizona (by 9)

Wait... Utah?

The suburbs are abandoning Trump

Donald Trump is banking on his enthusiastic base to give him another four years in the White House, but suburban voters are abandoning him. It might not matter if the MAGA base is riled up come 2020.

As The Hill noted on Tuesday, Trump is “performing poorly with some of the key voting blocs that populate the nation’s suburbs, notably white women and white college graduates.”

His unpopularity among these groups could be enough to push the swing states he barely won in 2016 back into the blue column.

As The Hill added, “The margins were so narrow that any shift in the suburbs could swing those states back into the Democratic column, even if Trump were to retain the enthusiasm of his base.”


With the help of Russian interference, former FBI director James Comey’s ill-timed letter and an unpopular Democratic nominee, Donald Trump was able to thread the needle in 2016.

As of today, the numbers indicate that he will have a difficult time replicating his 2016 victory next year.
