The result’s a big deal for President Joe Biden because the state was won by former leader/aspiring Republican candidate Donald Trump in 2020, and as we mentioned yesterday, opinion polls out this week showed he’s trailing Trump in several key states. Biden says, “Voters vote. Polls don’t. Now let’s go win next year”.
