Trump Campaign Unhappy With Internal Polling Numbers

President Donald Trump’s campaign said it will fire several pollsters after internal polling numbers were released.

These numbers showed him behind Democratic presidential candidates in key states.

One of those candidates was Joe Biden who was ahead in states like Michigan and Wisconsin.

A person familiar with the firing said it was more about embarrassing the president than accuracy issues.

According to CNN, Trump recently became fixated on the numbers, asking for updates or newer polls.
