Lansing-based EPIC-MRA has conducted a third poll leading up to the November presidential election.

In June, Michigan registered voters surveyed resulted in a 12-point lead for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden over Republican incumbent, President Donald Trump. A second poll indicated a 16-point lead.

Now, a third poll conducted in late July surveying 600 registered Michigan voters, 40-percent by cell phone; 44-percent identified as a Democrat, 39-percent Republican, 14-percent Independent and 2-percent undecided.

When asked, “If the election for President were held today, would you vote for Donald Trump the Republican, Jo Jorgensen the Libertarian, or Joe Biden the Democrat?”

Biden received 51-percent of the total vote, Trump received 40-percent and Jorgensen 3-percent. That’s an 11-point lead for Biden over Trump with a 4-percent plus/minus margin of error.

In Michigan U.S. Senate polling, Democratic incumbent Gary Peters holds a 10-point lead over Republican challenger John James. Peters received 50-percent of the vote to James 40-precent…10-percent remain undecided.

Again, there’s a 4-point plus/minus margin for error.
