Trump conflates poll showing him winning in 2024 with proof of a '2020 win'
Fabrizio Lee & Associates recently released a poll showing that if President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump were competing in a presidential election now, Trump would have the advantage in the five 2016 Trump states that Biden flipped in 2020: Pennsylvania, Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia. But according to journalist David Freelander, Trump is conflating that poll with a Trump victory in 2020, which didn't happen.
Freedlander, known for his work for New York Magazine, tweeted:
Incredible. Trump pollster shows that \u201cif the 2024 election were held today\u201d Trump would be up over Biden, but Trump seems to think it shows how he really won 2020pic.twitter.com/wX96uqD0gA— David Freedlander (@David Freedlander) 1637685507
Trump, in response to that poll, mentions the "states I supposedly lost but didn't."
Although Biden's poll numbers were strong in the spring, recent polls have shown his approval ratings plummeting. But Freelander's point is that there is a major difference between a poll showing Trump with an advantage in November 2021 and the mood of U.S. voters a year earlier.
