A new poll of likely MI voters shows former Vice President Joe Biden beating President Trump in the state by 3 percentage points, 49 percent to 46 percent.

Trump has a 30-point lead among rural white voters, while Biden has a 64-point lead among black voters.

Biden leads by 17 points among voters aged 65 and older and by 13 points among independents. "At worst for them, as coronavirus cases rise, Trump's judgement is questioned-and November looms", Quinnipiac University polling analyst Tim Malloy said in a statement.

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 poll, which recently surveyed more than 1,200 randomly selected registered voters, comes as Democratic and Republican leaders and the Trump administration have sparred over the next potential stimulus package amid the pandemic. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.

Presidential hopeful Joe Biden has asked Sen. President Donald Trump is facing a strong campaign headwind in MI, a state that ensured his 2016 upset victory and which Trump likely will need to secure reelection, according to a poll released Thursday.

The poll shows voters are split on who they think would do a better job at handling the economic downturn brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, with 48% saying Biden and 47% saying Trump. According to the Quinnipiac poll, 55 percent of registered voters said Biden would better handle the outbreak, while 39 percent favored Trump.

Besides, 50 percent approve of Trump's handling of the economy while 47 percent disapprove, compared to a 51 - 44 percent approval in April.

Despite Biden's lead over Trump nationally, another poll conducted by CNBC/Change Research, shows the president with a slim lead over Biden in a number of key battleground states. To get his approval ratings back up, Trump's campaign is choosing to attack Biden in hopes voters will see the race as a choice rather than running on Trump's performance in his first term.
