Poll results indicate respondents believe Trump would do a better job of handling immigration and border security, the economy, handling the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, and foreign relations. Voters say Biden would do a better job with Medicare and Social Security, health care, abortions, and ensuring fair and accurate elections.

Wisconsin is considered a swing state in November. Biden won the state 49.5%-48.8% in 2020. Trump clipped Hillary Clinton 47.2%-46.5% in 2016.
