President Obama has campaigned tirelessly for Clinton, and his support is invaluable given his own rising popularity in the closing days of his second term. Clinton is leading Trump in Michigan, two polls showing her up by +4 and +5 according to Real Clear Politics.
In a poll between Trump vs. Clinton vs. Johnson vs. Stein, Detroit Free Press shows Clinton 42, Trump 38, Johnson 5, Stein 2, putting Clinton at +4.
In another poll between Trump vs. Clinton vs. Johnson vs. Stein, Public Policy Polling puts Clinton at 46, Trump 41, Johnson 6, Stein 2, putting Clinton at +5.
PPP reports that “Clinton’s amassing a large lead in early voting in each of these states. Among those who have already cast their ballots she’s up…57-36 in Michigan.” In part, this is due to Obama’s own popularity in Michigan, where voters favor him over Trump 52/40.
