Headwinds for Trump in bid to repeat Upper Midwest victories

He's facing headwinds not only in national polling, which shows Democrat Joe Biden leading, but also in battleground surveys.

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA — President Donald Trump is making a late reelection pitch to voters Saturday in Michigan and Wisconsin, states in the Upper Midwest that were instrumental to his 2016 victory but may now be slipping from his grasp.

He's facing headwinds not only in national polling, which shows Democrat Joe Biden leading, but also in battleground surveys.

 The Trump campaign has largely retreated from the TV advertising in the Midwest, shifting much of its money to Sun Belt states such as Florida, North Carolina, Arizona and Georgia, as well as Pennsylvania. 

Trump scheduled events in Muskegon, Michigan, and Janesville, Wisconsin, and stops Sunday in Nevada and Monday in Arizona.
