Heritage Action Poll: Biden 50, Trump 46

Former Vice President Joe Biden holds a slight edge over President Donald Trump in Pennsylvania, according to this conservative group. 

Heritage Action for America, a group turns “conservative ideas into reality,” conducted a battleground survey of four states including Pennsylvania. 50% of likely general election voters in Pennsylvania said that they’d vote for Biden if the election were held today, while 46% said that they’d vote for Trump. 

Of the four states polled, Pennsylvania is the lone state that shows Biden with a lead over Trump. The polling from this conservative group shows Biden and Trump tied in Florida and Wisconsin, while the president has a 3 point lead in Arizona. 

Trump’s job approval and favorability rating in this poll are also slightly under water. 49% either strongly or somewhat approve of Trump’s job performance, while 50% strongly or somewhat disapprove. 

45% have a favorable view of Trump, while just over half, 51%, have an unfavorable view of him. Biden’s favorability rating is slightly above water. 48% have a favorable view of Biden, while 46% have an unfavorable view of him. 

Trump trailing in this poll could be attributed to a majority of likely voters in the state believing that the country is going in the wrong direction. 29% of likely voters say that the country is heading in the right direction, while 61% say that the country is on the wrong track. 

One specific brightspot that Trump can point to in this poll is how likely voters view his performance on the economy. 53% polled said that they approve of Trump’s handling of the economy, while 43% disapprove.

Although Trump is behind Biden in this poll, likely voters are more divided when asked what party they’d vote for on a generic congressional ballot and which party they trust more to rebuild the economy. 

Likely voters are split, 43%-to-43%, when asked if they’d support the generic Republican candidate for Congress or the generic Democratic candidate. 45% said that they trust the Republican Party more to rebuild the economy following the COVID-19 pandemic, while 43% said that they trust the Democratic Party more, and 12% said neither party. 

46% of voters agreed with they agreed with the following statement – “Some people say that Joe Biden suffers from some level of diminished mental capacity and because of this they fear that if he is elected president his administration will be staffed with very liberal socialists given to him by Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the Democrat National Committee.” 45% of voters said that they disagreed with that statement. 

Likely voters from this conservative backed poll also had an overall negative view of both Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). 52% said that they had an unfavorable view of Pelosi, while 40% said that they had a favorable view of the current Speaker. 45% said that they had an unfavorable view of Ocasio-Cortez, while 31% said they have a favorable view of the congresswoman. 

This poll from Heritage Action, surveying 400 likely Pennsylvania voters collected data between August 2-4, has a margin of error of +/- 4.90%. FiveThirtyEight doesn’t have a grade for polling from Heritage Action. 

The Biden vs Trump results from this GOP friendly poll paint a bit of a more positive picture for the president in comparison to other public polls between the two in the state. The Real Clear Politics average shows Biden leading Trump by 6.4 points in Pennsylvania.

Trump was right ” when the looting starts , the shooting starts “. These punks know not to come to my woodhood , far away from the rat infested Dem controlled cities !

      1. B says:

    1. notincompetentlosers says:

      Its tough for us to keep up with your continued typographical and grammatical mistakes. Good for you for refusing to back down and forging ahead with your illiteracy and incomprehension. Ignorance is bliss.

      1. notincompetentlosers says:

        And I will add this too . I just don’t like women . Never had a date and I’m really shy , sorry … turning red in the face . Oops , something just popped up down there … Heee … Heeee .

        1. Cathy Cook says:

          Thank you for sticking up for me . This kid comes here every night a steals people’s ID’s . He thinks John McCain was not a war hero and a real woman is a blow up doll . The kid is messed up !

          1. truth says says:

            All he or she had is name calling and checking spelling . Probably a school teacher that had never dated . He or she comes here all the time . Think he or she was bullied .

          2. A says:

            ^^^ Note the same incompetent typographic and grammar mistakes. Same illiterate simpleton pretending to be a woman. Sad.

      2. Cathy Cook says:

    2. you inbred son? says:

      You are really illiteracy at its finest. Cognitive abilities just aren’t your skill set, but at least make an effort to convince people its not the same unread uncouth simpleton again and again

      1. Cathy Cook says:

        That’s what brings you here…. You are unable to debate yet call people out . We get under your skin you yellow belly fascist .

        1. you inbred son? says:

          How can we debate with such illiterate drivel? If your incompetence were not so astounding and you could learn the basic grammatical structuring of sentences and elementary typography it might be possible. Its impossible to debate a kakapo.

      2. truth says says:

        ^^^^ Talks to himself . Aggggg , Aggggg

  4. Not pretending to be a woman says:

    Biden is a fascist and a clown . Agree
    McCain was not a war hero . Photo opt loser !

  5. Rick in Pa says:

    Never trust a poll that doesn’t give you their demographics and methodology. Based on the results I would guess they oversampled R’s.

  6. Miriam says:

    Biden chose the 2nd most powerful position in the world based on race and gender.

    If he didn’t violate the Civil Rights Act he turned back the clock so employers can now discriminate on the basis of race and gender,

  7. Cathy Cook says:

    How can Biden lead when the sex abuser Clinton was on ! Give me a break , as a woman , I would never vote for Biden with Bill in his camp .

    1. Not pretending to be a woman says:

      Same loser pretending to be a woman. You’d think he’d learn to at least correct the same typographical and grammatical errors he makes over and over and over again. Its no surprise he lashes out and exhibits such disgust for the LGBQT community. It must be so difficult trying to hide who you truly are from your friends and family every single day. You almost want to have some empathy for him.

      1. Cathy Cook says:

        Loser ^^^^ Likes men

      2. Not pretending to be a woman says:

        Still pretending to be a woman.

        1. notincompetentlosers says:

          Oh just stop silly . Take a cold shower . Mommy made a cake and will give you a big slice .

        2. Cathy Cook says:

          ^^^^^ Reads minds …. Aggggg , Agggg . Oh and he triggers easily . Early finisher if you know what I mean lady’s .. Agggg , Agggg !

  8. Glenn the Stud says:

    2016 repeat all over again . This time
    Joe will be in bed and won’t come out to find Trump won again . Epic sky screaming , waaaaa , waaaaa . We lost , sad losers !

  9. Chuckie Porter the rat says:

    Right. But enough of the hillbillies this year will vote for Biden because Trump’s promises and lies were regrettably unfulfilled. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me 14,627 times and counting, Boy am I DUMB.

  10. truth says:

    Sammy Davis must be AG Barr in disguise, because his summary is nothing like the article.

    1. truth says says:

      I’m your worst nightmare .

  11. Sammy Davis says:

    We have 8 million voters in Pennsylvania , 8 million ! The company that took this
    poll only polled 400 voters . That’s not a poll folks .
    At the very minimum , a 10% or higher would be needed and you are talking about thousands and thousands of
    voters needed . On top of this , where did they poll , in
    liberal PHL .

    Same mistake that happened in 2016 , hillbillies from
    every corner of PA are coming out to vote .

    1. truth says says:

      I voted for Trump in 2016 and will again in November . After watching dead beat Bill Clinton , Big Mike and the laughable Liz Warren now running the …. Native American Caucus , the DNC is a joke . Old people saying old things about good old Joe Sleepy Biden , yawn .

      1. Chuckie Porter t says:

        Trump was right , McCain wasn’t a war hero .

        1. Chuckie Porter the rat says:

          Right again, Zakery Bissell. McCain volunteered to stay captured until his fellow hostages were released. You and Trump can call it cowardice if you want. My guess is you, like Trump, were a pussy in hiding when your country needed you. As well, your lame shit is getting old so shut up and fuck off Dummy!

          1. truth says says:

            McCain didn’t die like my Uncle who was a real hero .
